Are You Amped About Sky Princess 2019?

I am a great swimmer when sober and an alright swimmer the rest of the time. It may be more likely that I am too lazy to swim around and just wish to wade around the stairs. Please don't mind me. My level of courtesy and helpfulness to you will always depend on how far into the day I am with my Premium Beverage Package. Let me apologize to you in advance for any inconvenience I may cause. 😄

I would make more sense to put the walking track on the outside !  Bob - I am a runner and I am respectful of the walkers on the running trail - just like the cyclist are respectful of the runners and walkers !

You are one of the nice one's then.  What really irks me, (Non-Royal Class Ships) is that runner's are allowed/tolerated on the promenade deck.  Makes it impossible to take a leisurely walk with people whizzing by you and getting indignant when you don't jump out of their way.....

That's the point. Walkers are  in the way of those that jog on the promenade. People enjoying the view at the railing are in the way as well. The jogger gets impatient with us and vice versa. 

Running should be banned on the Promenade deck. But knowing Princess, it would never be evenly enforced......

Has anyone been notified that their photos were picked for display on the passenger decks yet?

I know at least one did ... don't remember who, or if it might have been on a roll call ...

BTW I am sailing on Island Princess next year.  Not as shiny and new.  However shiny and new is overrated most of the time.

Just got off.  Overrated and overpriced.

My travel agent told me the same thing.  He said he is not pushing anyone to sail this ship yet;  way overpriced and not a wow factor.

Not sure where to ask this:  wondering if there are special events/ formal/ etc. on the 3 day cruises Dec. 1 & Dec. 3/19? And what to expect, pack?

Getting really excited after seeing this sneak video - especially love the Princess Live! makeover which we are talking about in a separate thread

Nice video.   Also, if you go into youtube, and go into his channel ( Rubel Fitness & Tour Tv ), there are a few other videos taken from outside.   I would expect that Princess will start to ramp up the marketing shortly!!!

I see that there is a "Swirls" ice cream on the lido deck, but what about "Coffee & Cones"?  Our cabin is on the lido and would like easy access to specialty coffees in the morning without having to trek down to the IC.

If there isn't a "Coffee and Cones", you should be able to access the special coffees in the Pastry Shop section of the buffet.

Oh ok!  I have not yet sailed on a Royal Class ship and did not know that there is also specialty coffee in the Pastry Shop.  This is good news!  I can send the hubs for cappuccino AND a croissant 😄

Unlike at the International Café, the Pastry Shop baristas said that only specialty coffees are available but not brewed coffee.  It’s possible to pay for a Caffe Americano...an espresso diluted with hot water.

 

That was okay for me because the free filtered coffee made from ground coffee in the Royal-class buffets was fine for me & was better than that made from coffee concentrate on their other ships.

Hi all, I haven't been on the board for a while.  Does anyone know what the adult retreat pool will really look like yet?  The deck plans show the pool with cabins on the sides, so will there be much seating actually around the pool?  And it looks like there will be seating on the deck above, much like by the main pools.  And I'm wondering if they will have the shaded areas like they do on the retreat pool on the Royal/Regal ships?
