Sky Princess will feature a new suite category called Sky Suites. Located at the top of the ship, the suites will feature 270-degree views, plus occupants will be able to watch the ship's Movies Under the Stars without leaving their room. Sky Suites will hold up to five people and offer the largest balconies in the Princess fleet: 947 square feet for the portside (left hand) Sky Suite and 1,012 square feet for the starboard (right hand) Sky Suite. The suites will feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dining area with a sky light. 

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.

Other cabin categories onboard will include:

Club Class mini-suites: A selection of the ship's best located mini-stuites, these cabins also come with several perks including an exclusive Club Class Dining space with expedited seating and expanded menu options, priority embarkation and debarkation, and complimentary half bottles of red and white wines.

Deluxe Balcony: These balcony cabins, which range in size from 233 to 279 square feet, have larger balconies than standard balcony cabins and feature sofa beds.

Outdoor Spaces

Sky Princess' main pool deck will have two pools and more hot tubs (including two cantilevered over the pools) than other Royal-class ships, while the reimagined Sanctary will have twice as many cabanas. 

A third pool, the Wakeview Pool, will be located at the back of the ship, while a fourth pool, the Retreat Pool, will be for adults only. 


Dining options will include a mix of restaurants familiar to past Princess passengers, as well as venues that first debuted on the line's Asia-based Majestic Princess and one new quick-bite spot.


Alfredo's Pizzeria: The line's popular pizza joint.

World Fresh Marketplace: The ship's buffet, which features a wide variety of standalone food stations, making it much easier -- and quicker -- to navigate.

Salty Dog Grill: The ship's gourmet poolside grill offers several choices of burgers, hot dogs, tacos and, of course, loaded fries. All are free except the $5 "Ernesto" burger.

International Cafe: Located in the atrium, the International Cafe is a great spot to grab a small bite to go. Options include sandwiches, soup, quiches, salads, pastries and more. 

For Fee

La Mer: Created in partnership with 3-Michelin star chef Emmanuel Renault, this restaurant first debuted on Majestic Princess. Sky Princess will have a brand-new La Mer menu in conjunction with Master Sommelier Doug Frost's curated wine list. The venue offers French bistro-style fare for $35 per person. 

Crown Grill: The line's signature steakhouse, Crown Grill features an array of chops, seafood and steaks served from a theater-style kitchen.

Sabatini's Italian Trattoria: From the mind of Los Angeles-based chef Angelo Auriana, whose restaurants The Factory Kitchen and officine BRERA regularly rank among the best in L.A., this eatery serves up popular northern Italian dishes with made-from-scratch pasta.

Princess Live Cafe: A new space onboard, this cafe, located in the Princess Live studio, will serve barista-made coffees, teas and quick bites. 

Ocean Terrace Seafood Bar: Also new, this raw bar will serve up a flight of oyster shooters, sushi and sashimi, ahi tuna poke, king crab cocktail and much more at a la carte pricing. 

As for the bar scene, passengers can enjoy everything from beer and whiskey at the British-style Wheelhouse Pub to fine wine at Vines.


New on Sky Princess will be the Take Five jazz club. In the main theater, the ship will be home to two all-new fullscale musical productions, including "Rock Opera," which will feature a soundtrack spanning classic rock, musical theater and opera with songs perfomed in a variety of langauges. It will have an eight-piece live orchestra and costumes were inspired by the iconic Met Gala, one of New York City's most glamorous annual events.

Also new will be Phantom Bridge, an escape room experience that has more than 700 different outcomes. During each 23-minute session, participants will travel through various time periods as they race to solve puzzles. Phantom Bridge can be tailored to players of all ages, heights and physical abilities so parents, kids and grandparents can play together (up to six people at one time), and because there are so many possible outcomes players can come back more than once and never have the same experience.


The Enclave will be Princess' largest-ever thermal suite and will feature a hydro-therapy pool with a cascading rain shower, a Hammam, a Caldarium (a light steam chamber infused with herbal aromas) and the Laconium (a heated, dry chamber to help with purification and detoxification of the body)


Sky Princess will debut in the Mediterranean in October 2019 with 10 cruise departures on eight itineraries. The first sailing will be a seven-night Mediterranean and Adriatic cruise sailing from Athens (Piraeus) to Barcelona. From Barcelona, the ship will sail a seven-night cruise to Rome. A seven-night roundtrip cruise out of Rome follows, before the ship sails back to Barcelona on another weeklong cruise. All can be combined for 14-, 21- or 28-day journeys. Sky Princess will deparrt from Barcelona on a two-week transatlantic sailing with stops in Valencia, Malaga, Seville (Cadiz), Lisbon and Madeira before arriving in its new homeport of Fort Lauderdale.

The ship will arrive in Fort Lauderdale in early December, embarking on its maiden Caribbean season December 4, 2019 for a three-night sailing. The ship will then sail alternating seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries from December 7, 2019 to April 4, 2020. A unique feature of the itineraries is that every port call to St. Thomas and Cozumel will offer late-night stays.
