Accommodations:

Whether you spend a lot of time in your stateroom or just a little, you’ll want to be comfortable during your cruise. Thankfully Sky Princess has options to fit all needs and budgets, with everything from the affordable interior cabins to the luxurious Sky Suites–there’s something for everyone! There will be 2 Sky Suites onboard which will comfortably host up to 5 guests and will have a luxuriously furnished 700-sq ft. balcony. Although, if the Sky Suite is a little too large for you, Sky Princess has plenty of other fantastic stateroom options. Enjoy more living space and luxurious accommodations in a suite. Have your own private view of the sea with a balcony or cozy up in an interior stateroom and get the best sleep of your life. No matter which stateroom you choose, you are sure to enjoy an elegant and comfortable room aboard Sky Princess.

Dining Options:

When you cruise with Princess, you expect a top quality dining experience, and Sky Princess won’t disappoint! Of course you’ll have the mainstays; the buffet with quick and varied dishes and the main dining area features fresh and delicious dishes designed by award-winning chef Curtis Stone. But if you’re looking for something a bit fancier than the included dining, then visiting one (or more!) of the specialty restaurants during your cruise is essential. Enjoy an extravagant multi-course meal created and hosted by the ship’s executive chef at the Chef’s Table Lumiere. Or, if you’re craving some authentic Italian food, then a meal at Sabatini’s must make your ‘must do’ list. Or, if your trip won’t be complete without a perfectly cooked steak, then you must fit in a meal at Crown Grill. Whether you try one dining venue or try them all, you are guaranteed to enjoy a delicious meal every time.

Princess Cruises Announces Two Ships of the Next Generation

By The Cruise Web, Inc. 

Princess Cruises will be adding two new ships to its fleet, one in 2023 and another in 2025. The new ships will be the first in the line to be dual-powered and will primarily use Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) as a fuel source. LNG is the most environmentally friendly advanced fuel technology and the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel. Using LNG as the primary fuel will significantly reduce air emissions and marine gasoil.

“This revolutionary platform for next-generation, LNG-powered cruise ships will introduce innovative design and leisure experiences driven by the future vacation and lifestyle trends of our guests – further evolving the already best-in-class Princess Cruises experience we deliver today,” said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. “We look forward to collaborating with Fincantieri to bring our vision for this next-generation premium cruise ship into service,” she added.

Princess Cruises will be adding new ships including Sky Princess and two just announced.

Two Millennials Explore the California Coast with Princess Cruises

By Carrie Loughry, Marketing & Operations Assistant, The Cruise Web, Inc.

When I had the opportunity to sail the California Coast with Princess Cruises aboard Star Princess, I knew I couldn’t pass it up. It’s a destination I’ve been wanting to visit for a long time, and I knew cruising would be a great way to experience a lot of California without having to pack and unpack at each port. Before this trip, my boyfriend had never been on a cruise, and I had only been on a couple three-day Bahamas sailings, so a ten-day sailing was a little intimidating. However, we had no reason to be worried because we had an amazing time. Continue below for some of the highlights from my California Coast cruise with Princess Cruises.

Itinerary:

We chose our cruise primarily for the itinerary, and we were definitely not disappointed! Our voyage sailed roundtrip from Vancouver and included two sea days before our first port of call. This didn’t excite me at first, but ended up being a nice way to get accustomed to the ship and relax after the cross-country flight. That being said, we wanted to see California – a state whose coast regularly makes lists of places you must visit, and I can see why. The scenery was some of the most beautiful I have ever seen in person and I honestly didn’t want to leave. My boyfriend, Gary, and I did many fun but varied activities while in each of the ports. In Los Angeles, we took a tour of Beverly Hills. In Santa Barbara, we visited a cat café and enjoyed cappuccinos while playing with some of the sweetest cats I’ve ever seen. Monterey is an adorable seaside town, and we really enjoyed seeing how their bay conservation efforts have paid off. However, the highlight of our trip was definitely the overnight stay in San Francisco. I booked a hop-on, hop-off bus tour for us and would definitely recommend it for anyone visiting a new city. We were able to get a feel of the city and its different neighborhoods, learn about the history and importance of different areas, and have an efficient way to travel around San Francisco.

Princess Cruises Invites Guests to Hang Out in a Treehouse

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Princess Cruises announced today the newest edition to their Alaska cruisetour program – a treehouse!

Built from the partnership between Princess Cruises and Discovery Communications, the treehouse offers guests an unparalleled view of North America’s highest peak – Mt. Denali. Look out amongst the lush trees and snowcapped mountains to have the authentic Alaska experience that keeps travelers coming back for more.

Guests can reach the treehouse, located at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, by hiking the short hill trail loop. It is the first-ever designed and constructed treehouse in Alaska, and is one of the highest land-based north-facing viewing areas – which will give guests an unblemished, incredible view of the south face of Mt. Denali. Be sure to bring your camera!

“At destinations around the globe, we strive to create a bond between our guests and the places we visit, and now more than ever people are visiting Alaska to experience the beauty and adventure the state has to offer,” said Lisa Syme, Princess Cruises vice president. “As the #1 cruise line in Alaska, we are eager to bring these fresh and engaging experiences to our Alaska cruisetour guests, providing opportunities for more travelers to connect with the people, nature, storied traditions and history of the Great Land in 2018.”
