Princess Cruises has announced that their fourth Royal-class ship will be named Sky Princess. Sister ship to Royal, Regal, and Majestic Princess, the vessel is scheduled to debut in October 2019 and begin her service sailing a series of Mediterranean voyages.
Sky Princess Details
The 143,700 ton, 3,660 guest ship will feature an evolution of the successful design used for previous Royal-class ships. Sky Princess will include the brand’s signature elements and the best features found on her Royal-class sister ships.
Highlights will include a soaring Piazza-style atrium, Princess Live! entertainment venue, the adults-only deck Sanctuary, Camp Discovery youth and teen centers, and a variety of guest-favorite dining venues. These will include the Salty Dog Grill, Alfredo’s Pizzeria, Vines Wine Bar, Chef’s Table Lumiere, and World Fresh Marketplace. Sky Princess will, of course, also offer the outdoor “Movies Under the Stars” theater, and 80 percent of all cabins will have balconies.
The inaugural Mediterranean schedule of Sky Princess will feature 10 departures on 8 unique itineraries. First is a seven-day Mediterranean & Adriatic cruise from Athens to Barcelona on October 20, 2019. The voyage is combinable with a seven-day Barcelona to Rome cruise for a 14-day Inaugural Western Mediterranean & Adriatic Medley from Athens to Rome. The ship will also operate a new seven-day Mediterranean roundtrip Rome voyage, combinable with a seven-day Mediterranean Barcelona to Rome for a 14-day Western Mediterranean Medley.
The culmination of Princess Cruises’ Sky Princess inaugural season will be a 14-day Spanish Passage from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale, combinable with the seven-day Mediterranean and/or the seven-day Mediterranean roundtrip Rome voyages for an epic 21-day or 28-day Grand Adventure across the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
