If you have travel insurance from any company, (including Princess) it would depend on what is covered in the policy. If you just decide not to go, the insurance probably wouldn't pay.
If you think there's a chance that a family member (or you) may become ill and you'll need to cancel, be sure that's covered. If you're concerned about missing the ship in a port, be sure the insurance covers that possibility.
You really just need to find a travel insurance policy that fits your needs.
Personally, I would never buy the cruise line's insurance. In the very unlikely chance that the line goes "under" there's a chance you'd lose everything.
