Are You Amped About Sky Princess 2019?

Recommended Posts

 A new production show, "Rock Opera", will debut on Sky Princess from December 2019. Here's the details from the press release:

 

Created exclusively for Princess Cruises, Rock Opera will feature avant-garde inspired costumes, a musical soundtrack spanning classic rock, musical theatre and opera, as well as songs performed in a variety of languages – English, Spanish and Latin, and sign language.

The show will open on the 3,660-guest Sky Princess in December 2019, as it sails the Caribbean and will feature special guest Tenor Brian Justin Crum (America’s Got Talent: The Champions) for the ships inaugural season. The vessel will then head to Northern Europe and sail roundtrip from Copenhagen on a number of Russia and Scandinavia voyages between April and August.

“Rock Opera takes our guests on a musical journey, featuring our eight-piece live orchestra playing iconic rock songs. Our production and costume design team were inspired by one of New York City’s most glamorous evenings of the year, the Met Gala.” said Denise Saviss, Princess Cruises’ vice president of entertainment experience.

“Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess guests should anticipate an unforgettable evening of music that transcends language and celebrates the diversity of our crew and guests from around the world. Rock Opera features songs in English, Spanish, Latin and a Princess first – sign language.”

The show premieres aboard Sky Princess, followed by Enchanted Princess in June 2020 for its inaugural season in the Mediterranean.

Rock Opera’s creative team includes:

  • Director and choreographer Danny Teeson, who has choreographed for a number of celebrities including Robbie Williams and Tom Jones and also created, as well as choreographed Princess Cruises’ award-winning show – Fantastic Journey.
  • Musical arranger Nelson Kole, who has worked with Frank Sinatra, Dionne Warwick and Beyoncé.
  • Emmy Award-winning scenic designer John Lacovelli and celebrity costume designer Jackson Lowell, who has designed costumes for the likes of Elton John, Jennifer Aniston and Cate Blanchett.

After sailing on both the Royal and Regal during their inaugural seasons, I couldn't justify paying a higher fare just because it's a new ship.

we're paying about $ 5pp more per day (Cat BD - balcony) on the 3 day inaugural ... than we did for our S-4 suite

upsell on the CB in May ...  but, ...works for us

I’m looking at cruises next fall on the Sky so I have some restrained excitement.

 

However, I am not seeing the usual threads like:

“Everything Sky”or “Lets get Pumped for the Sky”

 

Please share your enthusiasm and potential Sky cruises for next year, I’d like to discuss more about this 4th Royal Class ship.

Beige is a safe color.  Thanks for sharing these pics

 

Looks more like 50 shades of taupe to me which is a bridge between beige and gray.

Or griege as it’s sometimes called.

 

Nice to see something a little different. Just grateful for a move away from the usual orange wood that is in the cabins. Hoping the shower curtain has finally gone too. Not that it will affect us as we only have mini suites or suites booked for the various cruises we have scheduled on the two new ships.

They were long overdue for a color change.

I was looking forward to the blues and greens in the staterooms, as depicted on the Sky video.

I would love to see them. They must be hilarious. I hope someday I will be lucky enough to sail with him.

He's just a good guy! We were cracking up last night watching the reflections DVD from last week.  My daughter was in it with him several times so we had to buy it. There were so many clips of photobombing mixed in. He's certainly what made us fall in love with Princess.  (We've only sailed with him.)

And they call me Lucky. 😁😁 I’m happy you had such a good time on your cruise.

Ha- Ha! 😄

 

Did anyone else notice the mention of "Live piano performance" in the Crown Grill Bar?

As much as I love Crooners, I certainly hope this isn't the new location.

Wondering if the Wheelhouse pub lunches will now be in the Crown Grill?

I am definitely looking forward to being on her in January/February.  I was supposed to do the T/A in November but had to cancel that cruise.  Looking forward to sailing on a brand new ship.  So glad they will have a Crooners....😊😊😊

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

Those would be for La Mer on the portside and on the starboard side for Alfredo’s Pizzeria.

I was under the assumption Vines was going away and Crooners was taking it's place.  Guess I was wrong.....
