Blast from the past! Princess Cruises restores the name Sky Princess to the fleet with new ship

Princess Cruises has revealed that its fourth Royal-class ship will be named Sky Princess, resurrecting the name not seen since 2000.

When Princess merged with Sitmar Cruises in 1988, Fairsky was renamed Sky Princess and sailed with the fleet for 12 years.

Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia group president, adds: “Now more than 30 years later, a new Sky Princess will join the fleet featuring our modern design platform and contemporary innovations, offered to exceed our guests’ expectations.”

The new version, scheduled to launch in October 2019 on a series of Mediterranean voyages, will be sister ship to Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess.

The 3,660-passenger vessel will include a number of the signature elements that feature on Royal-class ships. These include:

  • A three-deck central Piazza-style atrium
  • Multiple dining, entertainment and retail venues
  • A top-deck outdoor “Movie Under the Stars” theatre
  • 80 percent of all staterooms with balconies
  • The adults-only Sanctuary
  • Camp Discovery youth and teen centres
  • Dining venues including the Salty Dog Grill, Alfredo’s Pizzeria, Vines Wine Bar, Chef’s Table Lumiere and World Fresh Marketplace
  • Details of various innovations will be revealed shortly.

    Sky Princess’s Mediterranean voyages feature 10 departures on eight itineraries, sailing from Barcelona, Rome or Athens.

    The first is a seven-day Mediterranean and Adriatic cruise from Athens to Barcelona on 20 October, 2019. The season will end in November with a 14-day Spanish Passage from Barcelona to Fort Lauderdale.

    Bookings can be made from 14 December, 2017, while Princess guests holding Elite status will be able to book a day earlier.
