Sky Princess set out to sea from a construction dock at Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy to test the propulsion, steering and navigational equipment.
Sky Princess is now back in the shipyard, where she will undergo further exterior and interior finishing in preparation for her 7-day Mediterranean and Adriatic maiden voyage on October 20, 2019.
Before heading to the Caribbean, Sky Princess will sail a short season in the Mediterranean.
Sky Princess will be an evolution of sister ships Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess. Her enhancements will also feature on Enchanted Princess, launching in Southampton June 2020. They include:
- Two ‘Sky Suites’, which have the largest balconies at sea and will be centrally located on the top decks.
- New entertainment including the jazz lounge ‘Take Five’, a redesigned Vista Lounge, an enhanced Princess Theatre and the recently announced production show ‘Rock Opera’
- More than 25 dining venues and bars including the World Fresh Marketplace and speciality restaurants Bistro Sur La Mer (French bistro), Crown Grill Steakhouse and Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria
- A redesigned Sanctuary area, the spa-inspired top deck retreat reserved for adults. The Sanctuary will feature an enhanced, contemporary design including twice as many private cabanas as its sister ships, as well as new lounge furniture and the option for guests to indulge in a spa treatment
- Princess MedallionClass experience
The Princess Cruises fleet will continue to expand with the launch of Enchanted Princess and three additional ships arriving in 2021, 2023 and 2025.
