I've had NO luck getting an answer from HAL for when they will release their late 2013/14 partial Panama dates. I've called about four times over a couple of weeks and GUESSES from agents range from any day now to late fall. No agent would either check or ask someone on staff who might know.

Princess has their dates released.

We'd prefer to travel with HAL but are worried about risking losing the connected cabins we'll need for our family celebration if we delay booking with Princess.

Do any of you Panama experts know when they're usually released?

Thanks in advance,

If you had asked on the HAL board, we would have told you August or September. That is their normal timeline.

At this point we've decided to book Princess and reconsider once HAL releases dates. The added problem is that we're doing our first Princess cruise -- 27 days late August and so could miss getting first dibs on the cabins we need on HAL.

Thanks again for your expert advice.
