Princess Cruises has released a new preview of its Sky Suites, a new accommodation category the cruise line is introducing onboard the Sky Princess, which launches this October. 

Two Sky Suites accommodations available now for booking onboard Sky Princess, as well as the cruise line’s next new ship, Enchanted Princess, are centrally located on the top decks at the apex of the ship. The new suites will also have the largest private balconies ever offered by any cruise line, according to Princess. Measuring 1,012 square feet (starboard side Sky Suite) and 947 square feet (port side Sky Suite), the furnished balconies will provide a private vantage of the ship’s Movie Under the Stars screen and create a space for entertaining. The two suites will also offer 270-degree panorama views and have sleeping capacity for five guests, and more room for gathering -- making them ideal for families, according to the cruise line. 

Here's a video tour of the new suites:

Sky Suites have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dining area with a sky-light to the stars. Before Sky Suite guests board their cruise ship, they can take advantage of a pre-cruise, shoreside concierge. Once onboard, guests will also enjoy Sanctuary services on their balcony, a private suite experience manager, complimentary access to the Lotus Spa’s Enclave, enhanced ultimate balcony dining and even a deluxe telescope for Discovery Stargazing at Sea. More exclusive Sky Suites services will be announced in the coming months. 

Sky Princess debuts in the Mediterranean in October 2019 and Enchanted Princess sets sail in Europe in 2020. Both cruise ships, carrying 3,660 guests, will include a number of features found on Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess, as well as new offerings that represent an evolution of the current ships’ designs.

Additional Sky Princess features include:

  • Princess MedallionClass. Enabled by the OceanMedallion, this complimentary wearable device will elevate the guest experience by allowing guests more time to enjoy doing what they love on a cruise vacation.
  • Entertainment offerings, including new jazz lounge Take Five, the popular Vista Lounge, an enhanced Princess Theatre, and new exclusive entertainment options.
  • Dining with more than 25 restaurants and bars onboard. From the World Fresh Marketplace to guest favorites like the Crown Grill Steakhouse and Sabatini’s Italian Trattoria, offering the Northern Italian flavours of Chef Angelo Auriana.
  • Contemporary-Designed Sanctuary with eight private cabanas – offering an adults-only area for rest and relaxation.
  • The Enclave at Lotus Spa. Sky Princess will include Princess’s largest thermal suite at sea – with a hydrotherapy pool, heated stone beds, Turkish bath and dry, steam, and aromatherapy chambers.
