Default New Princess ships?

New Ship or Makeover Schedule:

Knowing that new(er) ships are usually placed in service on the longer and more valuable itineraries. What is the typical "life" of any given ship before it's a candidate for retirement or refurbishing?

As an educated guess, are the Dawn, Golden and Grand Princess in this category?

Does Princess plan on a new or NEWLY refurbished ship for the Southern Caribbean itinerary spring of 2006?

Thank you for your insight.

There is a brand new yet-unnamed sister ship to the 'Caribbean Princess' to be delivered around May 2006, and will be sailing on Caribbean itineraries.

Thank you. Excellent news.

Is there a news letter from Princess that one may subscribe to for such information and possible future updates?

Generally speaking, IF you book now, and a new ship is substituted later, with a higher price schedule, are the original bookings charged the difference between the "old" and "new" price - if its a very specific stateroom?

Thank you, again.

The Grand is going for refurbishments in October (I think). It will then be moved to Galveston for a while. We are cruising on her on 11/27. This will be the second cruise since her dry dock. I don't know how old the Grand is but maybe this might answer part of your question.
