Princess Debuts Largest Balconies at Sea

Princess Cruises is set to introduce the cruise industry’s largest balconies at sea, available when sailing in the Sky Suites onboard the new Sky Princess, launching in 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 – the apex of the ship and feature the largest private balconies ever offered by any cruise line. Measuring 1,012 sq. ft. (starboard side Sky Suite) and 947 sq. ft. (port side Sky Suite), the furnished balconies will provide a private vantage of the ship’s Movie Under the Stars screen and create the ultimate 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.

Sky Suites feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dining area with a skylight 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 and Enchanted Princess sets sail in Europe in 2020. Both cruise ships, carrying 3,660 guests, will include the best of the features found on Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess, as well as new offerings that represent an evolution of the current ships’ designs, including more than 25 restaurants and bars, the contemporary-designed Sanctuary with eight private cabanas – offering an adults-only area for rest and relaxation and the Enclave at Lotus Spa, highlighted by Princess’s largest thermal suite at sea featuring a hydrotherapy pool, heated stone beds, Turkish bath and dry, steam and aromatherapy chambers.
