Princess Cruise has unveiled new details revealing some of the most standout features onboard its new ship Sky Princess slated to debut in the Mediterranean in October next year. The 143,700-ton Sky Princess will include the best of the stunning features found on its three sister ships – Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess – as well as new offerings that represent an evolution of the current ships’ designs.
Providing a first look in its first-ever Sky Suites, as seen in the released image, the suites are centrally located on the top decks of Sky Princess and feature the largest private balconies, measuring 700 square feet, ever offered by the line. It will offer a 270-degree panorama and have sleeping capacity for five guests and more for entertaining — making them ideal for families.
“Our two new Sky Suites reflect Princess Cruises’ continued commitment to offer new and expansive accommodations that meet the needs of our guests who wish to explore the world in ultimate comfort,” said Jan Swartz, President of Princess Cruises. She also added that Princess Cruises’ guests could look forward to the rollout of more new features as the cruise line’s fleet expanded.
Other new for Sky Princess will be the addition of a Wake view pool on its aft decks. In addition to the Wake view pool, Sky Princess guests will enjoy two new deep-tank top deck pools, a restorative Retreat Pool, and more Jacuzzis than previous Royal-Class ships including two Jacuzzis cantilevered over the deep-tank pools.
Nishith Saxena, Founder & Director of Cruise Professionals, ISA of Princess Cruises in India, said, “Princess Cruises has always been in the forefront of meaningful innovations which enhance customer experience and it is great to see innovations like Ocean Medallions & Sky Suites which are changing the way high-end clients perceive cruising.”
Meanwhile Sky Princess will introduce more ways for guests to unwind, with its relaxing Sanctuary area offering a new contemporary design and twice as many private cabanas as its sister ships. Guests will also be able to enjoy the new look of the ship’s Vista Lounge complete with a full bar offering, an evolution of the popular lounge on other Princess ships.
