I am sure that they’ll up date it several times over the next months, just as they have in 2012. They have been updating the schedule until April of 2012. Which is not unexpected, because I suspect that various docks will have to undergo renovations, repairs, etc., and they probably do not know yet how it will all turn out.
And yes, it was very nice to have the docks listed when I planed our time in each port. But to me knowing the berth was more of a planning detail, rather than a deciding factor which cruise to take.
I totally agree, the berth we are at is not a factor at all in our decision. It's just part of my research, info that I like to know. We are already booked for Alaska and can't wait for May to arrive.
Must admit the only port/berth I'm really interested in is the one in Ketchikan. Wondering if we will be right downtown or the berth that requires the shuttle. Again, just curious not a deal breaker at all.
