Princess Cruises have revealed that their fourth Royal-class ship will be named Sky Princess! The 3,600 passenger vessel will be the sister ship to Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess. She’ll debut in the Mediterranean in October 2019 with 10 cruises on eight different itineraries – how exciting!
What features will be onboard?
- A three-deck central Piazza-style atrium
- Multiple dining, entertainment and retail venues
- A top-deck outdoor ‘Movie Under the Stars’ theatre screen
- 80% of all staterooms with balconies
- An adults-only Sanctuary
- Camp Discovery youth and teen centres
- Dining venues including the Salty Dog Grill, Alfredo’s Pizzeria, Vines Wine Bar, Chef’s Table Lumiere and World Fresh Marketplace
Her maiden voyage will be a seven-day Mediterranean & Adriatic cruise from Athens (Piraeus) to Barcelona departing on October 20, 2019. You can add this cruise to a seven-day Mediterranean Barcelona to Rome (Civitavecchia) voyage for a 14-day Inaugural Western Mediterranean & Adriatic Medley from Athens to Rome.
In addition, Sky Princess will sail on a new seven-day Mediterranean round-trip Rome voyage, which can be combined with a seven-day Mediterranean Barcelona to Rome for a 14-day Western Mediterranean Medley voyage – calling in some of the most iconic ports in the Mediterranean Sea.
Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia group president, said – “Sky Princess continues a Princess Cruises legacy and honours one of our previous ships. When Princess merged with Sitmar Cruises in 1988, Sky Princess joined our fleet and sailed with us for 12 years.
“Now more than 30 years later, a new Sky Princess will join the fleet – featuring our modern design platform and contemporary innovations, offered to exceed our guests’ expectations.”
You’ll be able to book Sky Princess Mediterranean voyages from 14 December 2017! She’ll also feature various new innovations – details of which are to be revealed shortly. Watch this space!
A fifth Royal-class ship is currently under construction at Fincantieri shipyard in Italy – and will debut in 2020.
