Does anyone know if Princess Cruise Line will be coming out with a new ship within the next 2 or 3 years?:D

"Princess Cruises, a unit of Carnival Corporation & plc, has finalized contracts to build two 3,600-passenger ships with Italy's Fincantieri shipyard. The as-yet-unnamed ships, estimated at 141,000 tons, are scheduled to enter service in spring 2013 and spring 2014 and will be the largest in Princess' fleet."

I've heard that the first new ship is due to be in service in mid summer 2012. That is why I suspect they will have an extra ship in Alaska in 2012.:idea:

Does anyone know if there are any artist rendition photos of the new ships?

There's a cartoon type picture on one of the European blogs.

Hey John,
Its not European. I'm actually right down I-45 in Houston!
But I can confirm from my source that the picture is the real deal.
