Default How to make Final Payment via the Princess website

I booked my most recent cruise on my own via the Princess website because of the great deal I got being a past passenger and after checking numerous other options, it was the best deal.

So I decided to book without talking to a Princess rep, and wanted to do the whole process without talking to a rep. (Having never recd an upgrade I was curious if this might work, probably not...but wanted to try).

However, I can't find on the website how to make my final payment.

I am just missing it or do I have to talk to a Princess rep?

Thanks for the help

Trust me, not talking to a rep in person is not going to increase your chances of an upgrade in any way.
Just pick up the phone and call them and make you final payment. If the upgrade fairy visits, great, but with ships selling out well in advance anymore, just don't ever count on receiving one.
Best of luck though.

Thanks, I know it probably wont help, but I also wanted to see if I could do the whole process myself online.

Thanks again

As far as I can recall, when you get to the part of booking your cruise, and it you give them all your personal info, name address......,then below there is a part asking for your billing info: credit card info. When you enter the info there is a blue box saying: "submit payment". Any subsequent payments can be made the same way as far as I know

I booked my upcoming cruise myself on Princess's web site, and made all of the payments that way as well. I believe when you log in and go to the cruise personalizer there is an option for "Balance and Payment" on the right hand side. Click on that and it will take you to your payment history and option to submit a payment.

I booked directly with Princess, and did make my final payment via the Princess website. Shortly after I did, I got a confirmation from Princess.

Default Same Problem

It's perplexing that Princess's web developers don't make it easy to pay. That seems like simple business logic. After all, Princess isn't in business for their health. I would assume that they want the money. Make it easier for us to send it to you.

Even though that makes sense they seem to do fine with less technology and doing things the hard way.

If you book through a TA you don't have the option regardless.

I currently have two cruises booked. One through my TA and another booked online through Princess which I will later move to my TA. The one booked via the TA has to be paid through the TA. The other one is easy to pay online. I just now clicked on Payments and Credits and had the option to pay in full using Credit Card, PayPal, or Gift Card.

I'm surprised you don't see that option. The only time I've been unable to pay online was once when I reserved a cruise without paying the deposit. I talked it over with my wife and went back the next day to use my FCD to secure the cruise. Nope. No way at that point. I could have cancelled and started over but the only other way to apply the FCD to secure the booking was by calling Princess.

I paid for my upcoming cruise online yesterday. It was as stated above, just select your payment option. Easy-peasy.

This thread was started in 2008; the replies prior to yours are well out of date. While things are better these days in 2017, Princess' IT department is still known for questionable choices online. But one can now indeed pay online and even use a FCD for booking if you book direct. Using a TA still requires going through the TA, although some online ones allow you to pay through their websites.

It is Colorado. I lived in the Denver area for 35 years. What seemed abnormal with the weather was what was normal.
