Sky Princess Cruise Review by viwami

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2019
  • Destination: the Caribbean

I will start off saying that we are experienced cruisers that have sailed on most of the major cruise lines. We cruise mostly for exploring brand new ships, rather than the ports. This was a very enjoyable and relaxing Christmas cruise with 2 teenage daughters. We had 2 interior cabins R220 and R221 which were the largest inside staterooms we ever had, but bathroom was on the tiny side with curtain in the shower. The ship interior decor is very classic and old style, but beautiful.They have two brand new, exclusively for this ship full productions, Rock Opera and 5-Skies, which to my taste were the best I have ever seen at sea. Crew and staff were very experienced and nice, not looking overworked. Enrico and Marvin at MDR were a great team. Dennis, our room attendant did fantastic job every day. Captain was nice, very interactive with passengers, seemed to love his job, very dedicated. Cruise director, comedian and musical entertainment also up to brand new ship standards. Not too great magicians couple. Alfredo’s is the best pizza at sea, and Lido’s Pastry Shop and MDR food selection and quality are hard to beat by any other vessel. There is lot of outdoor space, but at sea day late mornings finding a chair requires few loops around the top decks. The ship has four (!) outdoor pools in different “neighborhoods”. There is also plenty of hot tubs. Co-passengers in the majority above 50’s are nice and well behaved. I would recommend Sky Princess to all those seeking a traditional and relaxing cruise experience with very classic, old style decor, great entertainment, quality dining, friendly crew, and premium feel. If you are looking for more modern decor ship but similar overall quality, choose Celebrity Edge, if you are for even more classic experience, more up scaled services and touches, and don’t mind older crowd, than Nieuw Statendam is for you. For all these enjoying things like go-carts, surf/fly simulators, roller coasters at sea, laser tags, robotic bartenders, or brewery on board, look elsewhere, you would not find anything like that here. Sky Princess, and both highly recommended ships above, will suit cruisers like ourselves, seeking a relaxing vacation on board “no-rust” ship. Happy cruising.
