Sky Princess

14 Night East/West Caribbean Adventurer (Fort Lauderdale Roundtrip)

Sail date: January 18, 2020

Ship: Sky Princess

Cabin type: Balcony

Cabin number: B621

Traveled as: Singles/Friends

Reviewed: 5 months ago

Review summary

This ship is short staffed and it shows in every area of the ship. Princess should do better. I left 2 pages of comments with guest services. I can only hope someone actually reads them. This biggest plus is Captain Tuvo, he can be seen anywhere at anytime and always willing to speak and have pics with passengers.

Embarkation

Breezed through with medallion

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Anytime dining was a nightmare, crown grill reservations were hard to get, the buffet food was never hot

International Café

3 out of 5

Many, many choices but almost nothing I sampled were more than barely warm. The staff kept the tables cleaned and stocked and brought drinks quickly.

Crown Grill & Bar

4 out of 5

Difficult to make reservations from onboard in order to use TA gift and coupon book. Plan on 3 hours. Again, I believe understaffed

Alfredo's Pizzeria

5 out of 5

Nice menu choices, made to order

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Pool chair hogs out in full force. All the pools are designed with ladders for entry/exit. No stairs.

Entertainment

2 out of 5
The theater is way to small, in order to get any seat for shows you needed to be at least 1 hour early. So choose dining or show. Remember there is no saving seats

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was fantastic but they are all overworked and spread thin. The Sky seems understaffed.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is beautiful. I could see the hall carpets already stained and dirty though, perhaps it’s the light grey/white.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Deluxe balcony, good size, plenty of storage, enough room in shower, but the balcony is smaller than most ships

Ship tip

Be prepared for the ship to be one of the most expensive but lacking the normal Princess standards

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5

George Town, Grand Cayman

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Easy. Homeland only uses facial recognition, through in minutes
