Default Princess Alaska 2015

Just read on a post that Princess might be changing up their ships to Alaska in 2015! When do Princess' alaska dates typically come out?

They seem to make minor changes every year, like switching routes for Golden/Star. The 2014 schedules will give you a pretty good idea even if they switch ships around a bit.

They won't do Panama Canal sailings in the summer. No major line does canal sailings all summer (they do it before Alaska and after Alaska).

The Island will not be in Alaska summer 2015, she's going to Europe instead.

The Grand will be doing a 5 day Alaska Sampler on May 4, 2015. That cruise is scheduled to open for booking on March 11, 2014.

Here is part of the notice I received from Princess on February 28:
IMPORTANT NOTICES
We regret to advise you that due to deployment changes, Island Princess voyage 2511 departing May 8, 2015, has been cancelled. The deposit
paid on your clients' bookings can be transferred to any new voyage, including Grand Princess' 5-day Alaska Sampler cruise departing on May
4, 2015*. Should your clients decide to rebook to an alternate sailing, they will receive a US$30 per cabin onboard credit and you will receive a
US$25** per booking bonus commission. Should your clients decide not to rebook at this time, they will receive a refund of all monies paid to
Princess.

No, but in the thread here http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1992819 it says that Princess European summer 2015 cruises will be open for booking March 11. So reasoning from the email that was sent to me and the date for the European cruises, I'm guessing that the rest of the Princess 2015 cruises will be available for booking on March 11 too.

Check the Princess forum. Alaska is scheduled to open March 11, 2014 at 8:30 a.m. pacific time. There are people who have the schedules and have listed the ships and will answer questions about specific routes.

The Grand Princess, Star Princess, Pacific Princess and Coral Princess will be doing the 7 day Voyage of the Glaciers, both north and south between Vancouver and Whittier. The Crown Princess and Ruby Princess will do 7 day cruises round trip from Seattle. The Golden Princess is doing the 10 day round trip San Francisco. The Coral Princess will do a y day round trip Vancouver on May 6 that will replace the cancelled Island Princess sampler.
