Sky Princess Maiden Voyage by Philbert57

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Sky Princess / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

A general observation is that I feel that gone are the days of cruising that welcomes all who board to feel special. The industry seems be catering more to share holders than us “common folk.” The entire experience now seems to be catering to the “Ruby Medallion Class or above and Suite passengers” that are willing and able become frequent customers are willing and able to spend freely on all the “extras” that would add hundreds of dollars to your final costs.

Beautiful Cruise Ship by infonurse

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Sky Princess

Captain Tuvo is the best! He is very personable and friendly. He is on the top of my list of the 5 most friendly captains I have experienced. I enjoyed being on the Sky Princess, despite my preference for medium to smaller sized ships. There were plenty of activities on board, yet you didn't feel like you needed to run from one activity to another. Great overall experience.

Excellent Mediterranean Itinerary by jladams

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Sky Princess / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Overall, the cruise was excellent and I'd definitely recommend Princess and would do another. My only real complaint was too many ports in a row and a few of the ports of call were very short days to see the area. If booking again, I'd look for longer times in port and more sea days between ports.

Just a relaxing and warm vacation. When the temperature gets below my age it's time to go on a Caribbean cruise.

Completed the Transatlantic voyage by EddieWouldGo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Sky Princess

Just completed the first TransAtlantic crossing on the new Sky Princess. Barcelona to Ft Lauderdale. Ship: The ship is as advertised, new, clean and high tech. The medallion technology is phenomenal, besides just opening your cabin door it also sends a signal while at the bars and shops and displays your picture so the staff can quickly identify and serve you, it also makes the boarding process so much easier. I originally selected the lanyard to hold the medallion but once on the ship for $10 I bought the wristband, much easier. Food: Enjoyed the buffet, very similar to other Princess ships, good daily selection and the staff was very attentive. We ate at the crown grille several nights, very similar to the other Princes ships, for $29 it’s a very good meal and plenty of food. Sabattinni’s was excellent as well. We did not make it to the new La Mer, but we dined at Antonio’s pizzeria at least 4 times, it was a very popular option on this cruise and the service there is fast. Bars: Can’t say enough good things about the bars and the bar staff. For those Elite members the Vista lounge was the location of the nightly happy hour, there were a Large number of Elite members on this cruise so they needed a large space. The bartenders in that lounge were exceptional and it was clear every night that the same people arrived early to get their favorite spots and enjoy the start of the evening. Vines in the Atrium also did a tremendous job. The medallion service really speeds up the serving times. Gym: New gym with plenty of equipment, particularly lots of treadmills. Only criticism is that the treadmills, bikes and elliptical don’t have tv coverage on them. I never got a straight answer but if you enjoy working out and watching the news, sorry they currently don’t have them set up,oddly they have several TVs hanging on walls in the gym that nobody can really see unless you stop your workout and go stand in front of them. Weird. Cabin: Stayed in a mini suite on Marina level. Nice size, consistent with other Princess mini suite cabins. Two large tv’s and a large library of movies, the live tv stations, were MSNBC, FOX news, CNBC, BBC and for part of the cruise we had ESPN and ESPN 2. During NFL games they dedicated two channels to games and had A game on the large movie under the stars. Hot water in the bathroom was awesome. Rants: -Seriously people! There are at least 6 elevators in most areas, do you really need to see an elevator open up at 90% capacity yet continue to force yourself and 5 family members into it pushing everyone else up against the wall? Ah, I feel better now. -People should really read and follow the suggestions on the cruise excursions. If it says you need to be mobile and able to get around and you AREN’T capable of doing that, please don’t go and ruin everyone else’s day. Ah, I feel even better now.

Disappointed week by Jhenares

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Sky Princess / Destination: Caribbean - Western

So my house was flooded but we decided to continue with our vacation scheduled for December 2019 at Princess with scuba diving excursions in each port, we thought it would be a good rest after all the problems with the water pipes in our house. We boarded the boat in Fort Lauderdale and its crew looking impeccable and very attentive. We arrived at the first port Grand Cayman port, the excursion was well scheduled and we had a fantastic day with the dolphins, very professional and attentive. Then we arrived in Costa Maya and our nightmare began. We started our excursion with Dreamtime dive resort and the guide accommodated us in a local taxi that did not know where he was going. When he finally found the scuba diving shop that had to take us, we got out of the taxi and someone called "the doll" received us. They gave us an initial talk and mounted us on a fishing boat transformed into a diving boat without the necessary safety equipment or even a miserable life jacket. In the end it happened and my wife suffered an accident suffering a severe  head injury with an air tank. Immediately she was transferred to the nearest emergency center being denied medical attention because princess vendor did not want to accept responsibility, we asked that she be transferred to the ship thinking that Princess's medical staff would help us. Big mistake Mr. Mark manager from the medical bay denied medical attention to my wife for not being able to pay $150. We tried to talk with Ms. Karen princess tour coordinator and it was the most frustrating and unpleasant conversation I have ever had in my life. We had to cancel all the excursions and we could not leave the cabin in the rest of the trip. Finally we returned home and my wife could have medical treatment. If you travel in princess never leave the ship princess is not accepting responsible for its vendors even if you buy the excursion to princess and also do not forget to bring $150 because if something happens to you on your vacation Mr. Mark if you do not pay him first he will deny you medical attention

Ship: Sky Princess / Destination: Caribbean

I highly recommend Princess Cruises and, particularly, the Sky Princess. There's nothing like being on a new ship. This was our 8th cruise, and our best based on the ship and crew.

I thoroughly enjoyed the ease of the medallion. So many tools and options available with it. Loved being able to locate shipmates or see what is going on around the ship.

My husband and I enjoyed this cruise for our 55th anniversary and we weren’t disappointed. The ship arranged six interesting dinner-mates for us making each evening fun for us all. The entertainment was excellent and we never lacked for something to do.
