Sky Princess Extremely Low Key Live.

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! After spending a few days in Rome I am unpacked and nestled in my cabin on the incredible and most beautiful Sky Princess! 
 

What a treat! I am awe struck. The changes are really refreshing.I am not going to go crazy with this Live and hoping some of the other numerous CCer’s that are currently onboard will chime in with their thoughts/photos.
 

Had my embarkation day Salmon in the Estrella DR.

 

 


I ate dinner in La Mer tonight and got a photo OP with now retired Alfredo Marzi who is on this sailing.

 

For dinner, 

The La Mer featured offering to begin,

Goat Cheese that looks like Olives with Fried Polenta


Appetizer

Fried Escargot. (to die for) chopped up escargot with a garlic butter inside. When you bite them the flavor is awesome.

 

Lobster Bisque with puff pastry.

 

Main course,

Scallops.

 

Dessert,

Pineapple pieces with A very light cake and Chantilly Cream. 
 

and of course a Cappuccino!! 

 

It has been raining on and off since noon. Pretty heavy rain from 5pm through sailing at 6:20. 
It is 9:20pm and the rain has stopped.

 

Nice touch in the cabin bathroom with pump hand soap and pump hand lotion on the sink.

 

Photos of the aft outside area of the WFM. 
The aft wall of the WFM is now all glass and they have a really cool sitting area with red cushioned chairs and couches on both sides of the buffet just outside those windows.

 

This is a kick back cruise to Florida. Nothing planned as I have done this rodeo many times. Internet and photo posting seems flawless and fast  at the moment. Also free automatic coffee and hot chocolate machine in the outside aft WFM area.
 

 

 

Well I will say goodnight and let’s get this party started!!

What?!  They finally have pump soap?!  This means I won't have to bring my own every time!  Whoohoo!  Does it actually feel like soap that makes a lather or is it more of a very liquidy hand sanitizer thing?
Great pics and info!  Thanks and bon voyage!

It’s soap for sure. I had brought 2 Dial antibacterial pump bottles. I was  pleasantly surprised.

 

The balcony railings are now aluminum instead of wood.  (Same shape/size as the old wood, rounded.

On the Sky next April, the more I read and see of her the more excited I am. Wasn’t the biggest fan of Royal class ships partly due to Princess Live, the improvements look great.

Thanks!  That is so good to know about the soap!

Interesting about the balcony railings!  Makes sense though - that'll mean a lot less varnishing!  Great info, thank you!

Look forward to reading your live reports.  Happy about the hand soap situation.  I'll be taking my Dial out of our suitcase tomorrow.  

 

Question:  I pretty much stick with wine as my libation of choice.  Can you give us an idea of what wine runs by the glass in lounges and bars?

Is the pump soap available in every stateroom?  I too always bring my own pump soap and would love to leave that behind when we cruise on the Sky next year.

All I wanted was an extremely high key “live from” thread from you, Keith. Why did you let me down?
 

Have fun my friend!

Following along.   I do have to ask is this your first Royal Class?   I ask because you said  the changes are refreshing.     Changes from the Grand  Class or Royal Class.      Would also like your opinion on the sound In the Piazza during  entertainment.   We went on our first Royal class cruise a few weeks ago and loved it but the sound was loud.    Thanks and enjoy the cruise.

Wow, I wonder how early you have to get up to score one of those 3 aft-facing loungers in the pool area!  You might have to sleep out there . . .

Bon voyage, Colo!  Looking forward, in a low-key kinda way, to more.

I legit thought the same thing. My first thought when I saw the photo of those loungers was “wow there will be a fight between chair hogs for those.” 🙂
