(11:55 a.m. EST) -- Princess Cruises is offering a closer look at its all-new suite category, Sky Suites, slated to be unveiled in October 2019 on Sky Princess. The line today revealed the suites' floor plan and square footage, as well as perks exclusive to passengers staying in those accommodations.

The previously revealed suites -- which are now available for booking on Sky Princess and also will be found on Enchanted Princess, launching in June 2020 -- will feature the largest balconies in the line's fleet. Each ship will have two Sky Suites centrally located on the top deck, with the starboard (right hand) suite boasting a 1,012-square foot balcony, and the port (left hand) suite offering a 947-square-foot balcony. Balconies will be perfectly positioned for prime viewing of the ship's Movies Under the Stars screen.

Additionally, Sky Suites will feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dining area with a sky light. As previously reported, each suite will afford 270-degree panoramic views and have capacity for up to five people.

Cruisers staying in a Sky Suite will have access to a pre-cruise, shoreside concierge; once onboard, they can enjoy Sanctuary services on their balcony, a private suite experience manager, complimentary access to the Lotus Spa's Enclave, enhanced ultimate balcony dining and a deluxe telescope for stargazing. More exclusive Sky Suites services will be announced in the coming months.

"We've led the way on many innovations in the cruise industry, evolving to meet the needs of today's vacationer and of all our new stateroom innovations, we've never seen such immediate demand as we are for these Sky Suites," said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises' president. "Our global fleet offers one of the highest percentages of balcony staterooms in the industry, across all cabin categories and now we're eager for the arrival of the industry's largest balconies at sea, inviting guests to relax privately or host their very own en suite celebrations in style."

Sky Princess will spend its first several weeks sailing from Miami before repositioning to Fort Lauderdale in early December. The ship also will feature OceanMedallion technology, more than 25 restaurants and bars, the line's largest thermal suite, and a new jazz lounge called Take Five.
