This info used to show up on the Destination Calendar as "under construction", but unfortunately they've changed the format of that and the dry-docks no longer show there.

From a pre-change copy I can tell you that The Nieuw A will dry-dock in late Apr (22nd to 29th by one report), the Noordam Feb 9th to 17th, and the Statendam in early January (I believe 5th to 17th)

For the past couple of years member trvlcrzy has posted a list right around this time of year that shows all the dry-docks and charters known at that point, so keep watching for that.

If you have another ship in mind, maybe Copper10-8/John will be able to tell you if you tell him which ship.

Now, how could have you forgotten about her John
I didn't forget - the Prinsendam d-d is Nov this year, and the OP was asking about 2013.

If anyone wants to know about the remainder of 2012, here is trvlcrzy's thread for 2012: http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1479954

I believe the Amsterdam will be in drydock in San Faracisco from around Dec 4 through Dec 18, 2013.

Drydock does not mean extreme make-over as like what happened to the Veendam and the Rotterdam. One never used to hear of complaints about the Veendam until its extreme makeover of a couple of years ago.

Default Dry Dock schedule

Amsterdam in D-D at SF from 12-4 to 12-18-13 makes sense since We are on it starting 12-18 in SF for a Panama Canal repositioning. SF has a languishing shipbuilding industry that needs the work. They did the emergancy repairs on the Princess ship last year after it caught fire off of MX.

Nine out of the fifteen ships.....

Six will be getting no serious attention for at least two years?

I believe Westerdam was in dry dock in April 2012 and Zaandam in August 2012

Eurodam, Maasdam, Veendam and Volendam were in 2011. I don't know when their next dry dock is scheduled.

Nope, HAL canceled the Zaandam dry dock (there is another thread about that on this forum) and moved it to next year in October before she starts to do South America runs.

Thanks for this update. Is this 4-17 October 2013 where there is a gap in the schedule?

Good, both of my next ships will have been cleaned and polished within a year of our next cruises . I do wish HAL had left something on the destination calendar so it was easy to figure out.

I think they have changed the Noordam's dry dock as those dates are now showing as a cruise. Can anyone confirm?

Yes, you are correct. 8-18 Feb is now showing as a 10 day Southern Caribbean.
I give up trying to keep track of these
