Sky Princess Extremely Low Key Live.

Recommended Posts

In our sideways interior cabin there appears to be more sockets (2-US; 3-Europe) plus a USB port on both nightstand lights.

Take 5 lounge........
Versus Club 6 on Royal/Regal it is configured a little differently. 
Same long shape but a tad wider and more of a rectangle shape. Seems to be more open with a little less of compartmentalized. (Is that really a word?)
Photos are a little dark.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking forward to your review. It's been awhile.

So I understand that Princess will be bringing back Crooner's. Will Take 5 be a nice substitute on the Sky?

Nice to see the USB ports. It will be easier to keep the phones charged.

Keith, have you seen Jovie bartending around The Sky at all?  I know she was talking about going there and I'm so hoping to see her again. 

 

Hope the weather has cleared up for you.

She is in the Vista for PSE.

Told her you guys were coming.

Appreciate all the pics...we will be boarding on 7 Dec...getting pretty excited.

 

How is the new layout around the pools?  the addition of the extra hot tubs on the sun deck?  hoping the design alleviates some of the chair hogs from grabbing everything!  LOL!  Wishful thinking.

Have not been up on the Sun Deck yet. Today all day wind gusting 30 to 40! 
I would say wind chill of 40.

I love those big cushion sofas on either side of the pool. Really comfortable!

I also liked the revised Trattoria menu...fried calamari & the Burrata with tomatoes are back. 👍

 

I think there were 7 pasta options (got the 3 pastas sampler) and got the dessert sampler with all 4 options. 

I’ve never been to Sabatini’s before and just checked out their menu.  It looks REALLY good!  I’m going to have to try this too!  I hope they can accommodate my DH no salt restriction.  The main dining room and Crown Grill have always been accommodating with that.

Today in Genoa were the big & the small ships of Princess docked together...Sky & Pacific.

What a contrast in ship size!  We did the Regal one month and the Pacific the next but surprisingly, the size difference didn't bother us.

AstroFlyer - Thanks for the pics of the outlets at the desk area (assuming that's where it was).  I like to bring a European plug too so I have more outlets to use.

We are on the Sky in May and the Pacific in October so I showed this to my husband.  He said "well let's cancel the tugboat then".  He always did have a weird sense of humor!

@Colo Cruiser - some discussion on our roll call(s) about where SKY will be on 12/1 - do you happen to know which terminal you are scheduled to arrive at and time ?

Beautiful and calm out now.

Temp around 50.

Cruising at 15 knots.

Genoa to Toulon, France.

Pretty close to a full moon!

They are a little dark but you get the picture.

Thanks for the pic!  Did not realize the difference in size....  

 

We are on the Sky in March and the Pacific in November.   Looking forward to both, especially the one on the Pacific as it is going to be in French Polynesia!

I saw this pic on IG today.  I have family on the Pacific right now and we board the Sky on Sunday.

Having been on the Pacific and the Royal I will take the Pacific any day.

No they are not onboard. They have no idea if/when they will arrive.

 

Given that they'd have problems with them during heightened hygiene protocols … aka Noro issues … then if they were going to get them I would suspect they may be rethinking them.  The Sky has already had one issue with a Noro outbreak.  On other ships I have been on, when this happens they completely shut down the self-serve drink areas.  I was really surprised that the cruise lines were even thinking of bringing them onboard.

Being a brand new ship with full Medallion and its first visit to Port Everglades, I would bet bottom dollar it will be Pier 2.

I forgot you were on this sailing!  Hope you are having the greatest of times and I look forward to hearing all about it.

 

Thanks for adding to the pictures of the Sky.

Colo Cruiser, thank you so so much for your posts including pics. We are on the sky for New Years. Do you know if the band Static is on the sky now and do you have "Captain Bye Bye" bringing you to Port Everglades?

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 was thinking the same as you as soon as I seen those loungers. LOL 😂
