Review summary

Cruise was great, lost track of time! Food was excellent and great variety of choices! Loved the live music and dancing in Piazza everyday and evening! Didn’t find the theatre shows as good as first two Princess cruises but overall ship entertainment was very good. Cabins amazing, SPA amazing and. We lived the pools! Also sat in on a Photo shoot in Platinum studio on ship and it was so.cool! jean the photographer was the best and made us loosen up and enjoy the shoot! The pictures he showed us were the best we had ever seen of ourselves. We had a wonderful time and booked a southern Caribbean cruise in 2021 on the Sky Princess whole on this cruise!

We came over to terminal to board with first group as we have done in past but this time we were delayed because there was a ceremony with VIPs and press to officially name the ship the Sky Princess!

Hey you can do gambling in person or on the casino app tied to oven medallion app. I came out $20 ahead by end of cruise!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The waiters we had in traditional dining were excellent! Angelo told us day one we would always leave dining room happy and he was so right! (Table 521 at 5:30) Dennis was our cabin steward as he too was very excellent! We had some requests that he eagerly filled for us! (Baja 327)

Ship Quality

This is our third cruise on this class ship! Love design and amenities! (Crown, Regal, and now Sky)

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved the Mini-suite, second cruise in this cabin type, never going back to smaller cabin again!!

Ship tip

Preload then ocean medallion app, oven compass app and ocean Casio app before getting on ship. Also get all your docs into medallion app before boarding as it makes things so easy! Also internet is excellent so I would prepay first that to get best deal! Stay on ship one port day and visit SPA and see the Enclave, you will be amazed! Also if you want to use the Santurary area (private area for adults with cabana s and excellent poolside service) make a reservation for a cabana in first day or two of cruise! Also may want to look at options for keeping your ocean medallion on your person, we used lanyards this time but I think we will use wristbands next time!

Ports of call

Disembarkation

Wow we were in our departure lounge on ship at 7:20 - we arrived at Fort Lauderdale airport at 8:45. Prepay for the Princess transfer SR from ship to airport, they have the process down!
