I currently see you are able to book through April 2020 for Caribbean Cruises. When does Princess roll out Summer Caribbean sailings? Will they roll out one month at a time based on the current date? Also, Is it typical to find lower fares when the sailings first become available.

Thank you in advance for all of your insight.

No, it isn't one month at a time....it is more like one season at a time. While they'd like you to believe that booking is best right after dates are released, in reality it depends on how well or poorly the ship is filling and what specials are offered in the interim. If you know what you want, or if you want/need a particular cabin, book as early as possible and watch for price reductions or other specials provided you have a refundable deposit.

I don't want to spoil the party but 2018 and 2019 will be the first years Princess has had a ship in Port Everglades for consecutive summers since the early part of the 2000s. I wouldn't automatically assume there will be one in 2020 until bookings actually open. Summer 2019 was released in December 2017 so it may not be until the end of this year you know for sure.

Debarking is a cruel procedure done to dogs.
Upgrades, Upsellls and Move Over Offers are completely different things.
As are being denied boarding and being disembarked early.
And don't get me started on Port Charges vs. Government Taxes, Fees, and Port Expenses.
The Jones Act is for cargo. The PVSA is "that terrible law" that restricts USA domestic sailings. But without which there would likely be no cruise ships with casinos, duty free shops, and international crew members willing to work fantastically hard every single day.
Lots of people fly in the morning of the cruise and catch crazy early flights home. Why ask us if you can? Just to be harassed by the regulars?
No hotels have free shuttles, free breakfast, free wifi, or free parking. You pay in the rate. And could have found a better deal paying by the piece.
And don't forget: the cruise line is in complete control of the weather, political unrest, medical emergencies, and anything else that delays or re-routes your cruise. Be sure to demand compensation as it is you and only you who were affected.
