Sky Princess is a Royal-class cruise ship currently operated by Princess Cruises, a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & plc. She is the second ship in the cruise line's history to sail under this name. She is the fourth Royal-class ship in the Princess fleet and commenced operations in October 2019. The ship measures 145,281 GT and has a capacity of 3,660 passengers.

History

Planning and construction

The then-unnamed, fourth Royal-class vessel was ordered from Fincantieri on 30 December 2015. On 30 November 2017, Princess Cruises officially announced the name of the fourth Royal-class ship as Sky Princess, in honor of a previous Princess vessel that carried the same name.

Construction of Sky Princess began on 9 November 2016 with the first steel cutting for the ship's bow at Fincantieri's shipyard in Castellammare di Stabia, with a separate milestone on 8 September 2017 marking the first steel cutting for the rest of the ship at Fincantieri's shipyard in Monfalcone. Her keel laying was performed on 5 July 2018. She was floated out on 14 February 2019 and completed her sea trials in September 2019.

Delivery and christening

She was officially delivered on 15 October 2019 in her handover ceremony at Fincantieri's shipyard in Monfalcone. She was christened at Port Everglades on 7 December 2019 by NASA astronaut Captain Kay Hire and NASA engineer Poppy Northcutt.

Service history

Deployments

For her inaugural season, Sky Princess sailed a four-day pre-inaugural "shakedown" cruise on 16 October 2019 for the press to sail from Trieste to Athens with a call in Kotor. She performed her official maiden voyage on 20 October 2019, a seven-day cruise sailing between Athens and Barcelona. Sky Princess sailed her inaugural season in the Mediterranean in the fall of 2019 before repositioning to her North American homeport, Port Everglades, arriving on 1 December 2019. Due to high demand, two three-day inaugural cruises were scheduled on 1 December 2019 and 4 December 2019, with both cruising between Port Everglades and Princess Cays.

Following her North American debut, Sky Princess will sail in the Caribbean in the winter months out of Port Everglades, the Baltic in the summer, and along the Canadian Maritimes and New England in the fall out of New York.
