Default Star Princess Deck Plan Change?

If you visit the Princess website and look at the deck plans for Star Princess it makes you choose either saling before May 10, 2013 or after to view deck plans.
What's happening on that magical date that has the deck plans changing?

Princess has re-categorized the cabins by location - that's the only difference - you can click on the post- May 10, 2013 date to see the difference.

No changes.... They are renaming cabin categories to make them uniform on all ships..

It looks as most of the ships no longer have entry level categories with only four cabins which used to mean that a GTY would almost always mean an upgrade.

I understand why they made the changes to reflect passenger desires which will result in some categories increasing in price while others will drop. The very popular aft facing balconies will now come with premium price & other oddities such as the large BA Caribe deck cabins costing the same as those with the smaller Lido deck balconies will be eliminated.

I'm too slow...while I typed my post you beat me by 2 minutes about the aft facing balconies becoming a premium priced cabin.
