Interesting. They're probably not bringing her to Vancouver for Alaska season. Will be very interesting what she does instead

They have also cancelled all cruises to China for 2014 as well.
I wonder if she going to be stationed Australia all year round.

I just heard the Diamond is going into an extensive refit in Mar 2014.
It's expected to be about 2 months long.

I believe the Diamond will be in dry dock Oct-Nov 2013 in Singapore. Not sure what's going on in 2014. The Princess site doesn't even show any cruises past February for the Diamond yet.

I did hear a rumor while I was on board her in March that the Diamond and the Sapphire would be trading itineraries, but the rumor came from another passenger and wasn't confirmed by any of the officers on board so not sure how reliable it is.

I supposed there could be any number of reasons for the changed itinaries and cancelled cruises. I am sure they will announce where these ships will be soon, I certainly hope so.

Was talking to PVP from Princess today. They where told the dry dock has been moved to Mar 2014 . They are expecting it to be in dry dock for about 6 - 8 weeks. No reason was given for the long time instead of the normal 2 weeks. This means she might not be ready for the May 2/14 cruise to Vancouver from Beijing.
