Princess Cruises has unveiled new details revealing features on board its new ship Sky Princess, including a first look at its first-ever Sky Suites.
The exciting new class of suite accommodation are centrally located on the top deck of Sky Princess and feature the largest private balconies ever offered by the cruise line.
Measuring 700 square feet, the balconies will provide a private vantage of the ship’s Movies Under the Stars screen and create the ultimate space for entertaining. The two Sky Suites on Deck 17 will also offer a 270-degree panorama and have sleeping capacity for five guests making them ideal for families.
Jan Swartz, President, Princess Cruises, said: “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”.
Debuting in the Mediterranean in October 2019, 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.
New for Sky Princess will be the addition of a Wakeview pool on its aft decks. In addition to the Wakeview 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.
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. Guests can take advantage of a new café in the Princess Live venue, serving barista made coffee, tea and quick bites.
Princess Cruises are expected to introduce further new features on board its new ships in the coming years. A further two Royal-class ships will follow Sky Princess, due to launch in 2020 and 2022, whilst two new 4,300-passenger next-generation cruise ships are set to launch in 2023 and 2025.
