Review summary

Since this was a brand new ship, I expected more. Food was unappealing, even in the speciality restaurant. Had several passengers tell me they didn’t enjoy the meals. So, it wasn’t just me or my spouse. I’ll still cruise with Princess, because I payed for a future cruise. I’ll probably cruise on another ship the next time.

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Ate at the main dinning room twice. The food was just ok. We’ve ate at Sabatini’s on the Regal and it was excellent. Not on the Sky. Another passenger Told me that they didn’t like it either. I like the variety of food at the World Market. The food just wasn’t seasoned enough.

Onboard Activities

Service and Staff

The staff was excellent. The best ratio to staff to passengers that I’ve ever seen. Our room attendant Edsel was excellent.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Liked that you didn’t have to walk through the casino to get around the ship. You could walk around instead. Seen ripples in the carpet in a couple of areas. Some loose parts in an area or two. Either poor workmanship or cheap materials.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Balcony was a bit larger than what I suspected. Bed slept well. To soft for my wife. Loved the location. Right by the retreat pool. Easy to go down one level to the lido deck.
