Default Final Payment Due

When ever the Final Payment is due, do they automaticly charge it, or do I have to do something. When I booked it says final payment is due to them by July 26th. Will they charge on the 26th or before?

Unless you cancel, they (the cruise line or your TA) will run the card on that day.

It doesn't hurt to follow-up just to make sure it was done.

Always make sure your final payment has gone thru. It is a very good idea to check with you (TA).
After that just count down the days until your cruise.....

My TA usually calls me a couple of weeks in advance to ask if I want to run it through on the same card or pay it in some other way. If she doesn't call, I call her. I would get in touch with your TA or the cruiseline by the final payment date to make sure it gets processed.

I spoke to the travel agency and they said it would be charged on July 26th. So I guess I'm on track. Do I need to call princess after payment is made to make sure that they received it?

If you trust your TA, I would not. You can go online and view your statement to see if it hit the card.

Hi Jack,
Always a good idea to check the Princess Personalizer when final payment is made, add all your information, flights, etc. You should be then good to go. I noticed I can print my boarding passes too.

If I were you I would be on the phone right away (if your TA works on Saturday) or certainly Monday morning - no point in taking any chances.

I agree, get in touch with your travel agent and just make sure the payment was made to the cruiseline.

Talk to your TA on Monday, but don't panic. I have been sitting in my TA's office while she called a payment in to the cruise line. She received the confirmation fax showing that the payment was made. However, the payment didn't go through on my card until a week later. This could be the case with your payment as well...

OK, I got ahold of the Travel Agency, They had not processed it, they said they have a 10 grace period where they can process it but they went ahead and processed it while I was on the phone. Guess all I have to do is wait for our paperwork from princess. Thanks for everyones help.

With your booking number you should already be able to lokk at details on the Princess site. Our cruise showed up as paid on the website withnon 10 minutes of getting off the phone with Princess! Bon Voyage! in about

I was panicing about this, I feel relieved now. I thought when the Travel agency said that payment was due by July 26th that if it didn't go by then that you were just out of luck, and the Travel Agency had been so unhelpful and unfriendly, it was a discount online agency. I've only delt with local agencies that were more that helpful before now. But I guess all we have to do is wait for our package from Princess. After losing my dad I've had a problem with panic attacts so this was causing me to have them. I just didn't trust the travel agency. But I guess I'm good to go now.
