  1. Thank you so much. I’m feeling rather dense as I had seen those photos but completely forgotten. I greatly appreciate the reminder 🙂.
  2. Still scouring the internet for any images of the premium / penthouse suites at the forward or aft corners.
  3. Apologies if this was previously mentioned, but from a recent YouTube video (see attached), a couple details noted about Sky: • no open-air gap on port side Lido deck bump out (as deck plans indicate - assuming starboard also has no gap - but SeaWalk glass appears present) • struts for outdoor canopy over al fresco dining area on promenade deck
  4. Found this sneak preview of some of Sky’s staterooms on Instagram. I realize taste/style/decor is subjective, but to me, looks like a nice and more modern interpretation of Princess’ long-standing design.
  5. Ah, I interpreted your statement “they had to be to bed by 2 am” to mean they had from 1:15am until 2am when it was their bedtime. Hence, not a couple hours, but rather, 45 minutes. Sounds like that tender operation was doomed for failure for many folks from the start! 🙂
  6. I think 45 minutes to take a tender to shore, go to a bar / club for a drink, and tender back (I assume that’s what you mean by “dressed up to go out”) is a VERY optimistic timeline, even for the most seasoned crew! 🙂
  7. Many thanks! Great photo of the northern lights. I hope to see them some day myself. Curious to hear from subsequent Sky cruisers with regard to state of the ship, but that’s for another thread. Thanks again.
  8. Thanks so much. And thank you, @johneb2 for your review. We have sailed Sky before and are scheduled for her at the end of May. Been following the Sky threads with great interest.
  9. Hi, do you have a link to your review? I couldn’t find it. Thanks!
  10. I believe Cheng discussed this prior (as you alluded to): I’ll defer to the experts on whether Viking’s design is uniform or why there isn’t some sort of “failsafe”.
  11. We visited a friend’s “corner” S3 which was adjacent to an IV. You are correct. It is a common hallway with a door and then within that hallway are two separate doors to each cabin.
  12. Shade can be found in Retreat. Some of the shadier areas tend to be “moving targets”, however, depending on time of day and direction of ship travel.
  13. We asked for a stout one night and the waiter didn’t know what that was. He offered something else and did not offer to find a stout elsewhere once we told him it was a type of beer. No big deal, but definitely not a “high-end” experience with regard to service.
  14. Mirror inside bathroom is partitioned and can be slid open to any degree as desired by occupant. If sharing the room with someone with whom privacy is desired, it will likely remained closed at most times. An improvement for Apex and future sisters will be a heated mirror and window mechanism. They both fog quickly which diminishes the appeal of the feature.
