Sky Princess newest Princess in the fleet

Princess Cruises’ newest and biggest ship has just completed sea trials in the Adriatic which lasted 6 days. During sea trials the ship is put trough a series of manoeuvres to test propulsion and navigational equipment. Sky Princess is now back in Monfalcone, Italy to receive finishing touches before the delivery which will happen in October 2019! Sky Princess has a few differences from her previous sister ships Royal, Regal and Majestic. Changes such as:

  • Addition of Sky suites
  • A redesigned pool deck area and an additon of the wakeview pool
  • Sky walk (a unique attraction on this class of ship) has been slightly downsized
  • Added cabins on deck 17
  • Redesigned Retreat area

These changes will hopefully make your cruise even better. A redesigned pool deck area has been long awaited on this class of ship. Now you can find two full sized pools midship and a wakeview/infinity pool aft! A positive change since pools were known for crowding on this class of ship. I have to say, wakeview pool looks amazing and slightly reminds me of aft pools on Grand class ships!

You can check out the progress of these redesigned areas in photos below, taken by Marcus Adams a few days ago!

Princess Cruises has accomplished another major milestone in preparation for the debut of its newest ship, Sky Princess, with the completion of sea trials. The new cruise ship set out to sea from the construction dock at Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy and was put through a series of manoeuvres to test the propulsion, steering and navigational equipment.

After a successful six days of trials, Sky Princess is now back in the shipyard for further exterior and interior finishing to prepare for the maiden 20 October 2019 seven-day Mediterranean and Adriatic cruise from Athens to Barcelona. The ship will sail a series of Mediterranean voyages before debuting in North America on 1 December 2019 for sailing a season of Caribbean cruises from Ft. Lauderdale.

The 3,660-guest Sky Princess shares all of the spectacular style and luxury of her sister ships – Regal Princess, Royal Princess and Majestic Princess. The ship also will feature breathtaking Sky Suites, with expansive views from the largest balconies at sea. In addition, two entertainment experiences have been announced for Sky Princess – Phantom Bridge, a world’s first game combining digital and physical elements for the ultimate immersive escape room, and Take 5, the only jazz theatre at sea, celebrating the iconic sounds, culture and history of jazz.

In addition, guests can make the most of their holiday time with the Princess MedallionClass™ experience, featuring the complimentary OceanMedallion™ wearable device that delivers an entirely new level of service and creates a holiday that is more simple, effortless and personalised.

The Princess Cruises fleet continues to expand with Enchanted Princess in June 2020, and three additional ships arriving in 2021, 2023 and 2025. Cannot wait to see what new features these ships are going to bring to the Princess fleet!
