did anyone see the asia changes for the fall 2010 and spring 2011. those ending in bangkok, now end in singapore. they still go to thailand, but dont end or start there. also some other port changes, like now instead of taiwan, we do south korea etc!! guess i have to change things that i was planning!

Received an email from Princess about the change. Think we will stay with it. Have been to Bangkok, but never Singapore. Been to Tiawan, but also been to So Korea. Need to do a good comparison of port changes.

Still should be a great trip.

We are booked on the Diamond Princess, Nov.19th cruise. We, too, received an e-mail advising of the itinerary change. Given the unrest in Bangkok, we can understand Princess's rationale for changing the disembarkation port to Singapore. After all, if things are still hot in Bangkok, it is easier for Princess to bypass Bangkok if it is just a "port of call". What really has us scratching our heads is the significant change to the rest of the itinerary. Unless, there is some benefit to Princess Cruises that we don't see, it seems totally unnecessary. Like others in this thread, we are disappointed not to be able to visit Taiwan. Indeed, the rather unique itinerary is what made this particular cruise attractive to us. Can anyone out there explain Princess's thinking?
