Princess Cruises shared the first look at a previously announced new feature on 2019's Sky Princess—two Sky Suites that have the largest balconies ever offered by the line and are centrally located on the top decks to provide a view of the Movies Under the Stars screen.

700-square-foot balconies

Measuring 700 square feet, the balconies will create the ultimate space for entertaining. The two suites will also offer a 270-degree panorama and have sleeping capacity for five people, and more room for entertaining, making them ideal for families.

Debuting in the Mediterranean in October 2019, the 143,700gt Sky Princess will include the best 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 are two new deep-tank top deck pools, a restorative Retreat Pool and more Jacuzzis than on previous Royal-class ships, including two cantilevered above the deep-tank pools.

Twice as many cabanas

The relaxing Sanctuary of Sky Princess will sport a new contemporary design and twice as many private cabanas as on sister ships.

The Vista Lounge will have a new look, complete with a full bar offering, and a new café in the Princess Live venue will serve barista-made coffee, tea and quick bites.

Further new features are planned.
