(9:10 a.m. EST) -- When Sky Princess, Princess Cruises' fourth Royal-class ship debuts in late October 2019 it will have a redesigned Sanctuary and an all new entertainment venue, the Take Five jazz lounge.
"Sky Princess is home to our most exciting entertainment experiences and venues yet," said Princess Cruises chief marketing officer, Gordon Ho. "The expansion of onboard offerings demonstrates Princess Cruises' commitment to innovation in entertainment. We have partnerships with award-winning composers, including Stephen Schwartz, and most recently launched award-winning "Fantastic Journey," -- the world's most technologically advanced show at sea. We can't wait to welcome Princess guests, old and new, onboard Sky Princess next year."
Among the new offerings onboard is a redesigned Sanctuary with eight private cabanas for rent, the most the line offers on any ship. There will also be a new jazz lounge called Take Five.
Sky Princess is scheduled to debut in late October 2019 with sailings in the Mediterranean, followed by cruises in the Caribbean starting in December 2019. It will feature Sky Suites with the line's largest balconies; top-deck Wakeview and Retreat pools; The Enclave at Lotus Spa, the line's largest thermal suite at sea; and specialty restaurants including Crafted by Curtis Stone and Sabatini's Italian Trattoria.

(12:25 p.m. EDT) -- Royal Caribbean International has filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a new device to be called "Tracelet."

The application, which describes the service mark registration for Tracelet as "Rubber or silicone wristbands in the nature of a bracelet," was filed on October 15, 2020 under the subcategory of "cruise ship services."

Given the name, it is not unreasonable to expect Royal Caribbean's new Tracelet to function as a wearable RFID contact tracing device that could be used to mitigate any potential spread of COVID-19 that might occur onboard.

Contact tracing is essential in the fight against COVID-19, allowing po
