Question New ships

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

Dated May 4, 2010:
"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.
