Part of the Princess Cruises' fleet, guests can sail away in style and come back feeling brand new thanks to a premium, memorable cruise onboard Sky Princess. Priding themselves on combining relaxation with discovery, with this ship Princess Cruises provide passengers with plenty of opportunities to take time for themselves, as well as the chance to feel invigorated with live entertainment and interesting activities. What's more, if you want to make your holiday even more relaxing, enjoy no fly cruises from Southampton, sailing to destinations from the British Isles to Northern Europe.
Princess Cruises’ team of expert chefs take fresh, local ingredients and transform them into undeniably delicious dishes. Dining choices include classic Traditional Dining, freestyle Anytime Dining and dine as you like at the World Fresh Marketplace buffet. Alternatively, for something a little more special, guests can choose from Alfredo’s Pizzeria for authentic Italian pizzas, Ocean Terrace for fresh and flavoursome seafood, Sabatini's Italian Trattoria for delicate Italian cuisine, the Crown Grill for steak and seafood, or La Mer for a French bistro-style affair.
Guests celebrating a special occasion onboard, or even just wanting to celebrate their holiday with a luxurious treat, should dine at Chef’s Table Lumiere. This extravagant and exclusive dining event provides an intimate affair, designed for small groups to go behind the scenes with a galley tour, before enjoying hors d’ oeuvres, fine wines, and an exquisite multi-course meal.
Alternatively, if it’s casual you’re looking for, The Salty Dog Grill offers unfussy but tasty burgers and hotdogs, and the International Café is open 24-hours a day too, should you need a little pick-me-up snack at any time, day or night.
Guests can spend sea days and evenings in all manner of different ways depending on their mood or preferences. Experience a romantic evening on the top deck with Movies Under the Stars, before enjoying a quiet drink in one of the atmospheric lounges, such as Bellini’s cocktail bar, or a fascinating couple of hours learning about wine over a glass or two in the Wine Cellar. The Take 5 jazz lounge is also sure to be a hit, offering music from the roaring 20's, post-war, big band, and contemporary genres.
On the other hand, for those looking for something a little livelier, there is the Princess Theatre or Princess Live venue, which host exciting productions including interactive game shows and concerts. Other live entertainment can be found in the Vista Lounge and the Bandstand, where there are frequent musical performances.
An alternative way to spend an evening is in the casino, where you can get glammed up and try your luck on a range of different gambling games. You never know, you might leave your cruise having hit the jackpot!
Kids and teens are kept well entertained through Princess Cruises’ youth centres, which provide enriching games and activities to guests aged between 3 and 17.
In addition, since collaborating with the Discovery Channel, Discovery at SEA programs have been introduced onboard, ready to be enjoyed by all the family with everything from stargazing to learning about BigFoot. The Sports Court also provides fun for all ages, catering for team sports like football, volleyball, and basketball and is a great place for getting the family together with a bit of friendly competition.
Activities onboard are plentiful and varied. Guests can enjoy a little retail therapy in the onboard boutiques, browse stunning pieces at the art gallery (and even bid on some items at the auction!), or head to the adult-only area, The Sanctuary, a blissful space designed to provide a peaceful setting in which to relax. Here there are comfortable sun loungers, eight private cabanas, and staff on hand to deliver light meals and drinks to your side. It’s even possible to indulge in an al fresco spa treatment in this area!
Sky Princess boasts the Lotus Spa Fitness Centre: a spacious gym equipped with top of the range exercise equipment – much of which faces outstanding views of the sea thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows. Let the views of the horizon inspire you to beat your personal best on the treadmill or the bikes.
After working up a sweat, be sure to make time to unwind and take care of your mind as well, by using the ship’s fantastic spa. As well as offering a range of treatments, The Lotus Spa is home to The Enclave, a wonderfully tranquil space with soft lighting, soothing aromas and some brilliant facilities. You’ll find a Turkish steam bath, an herbal steam chamber, a hot dry chamber, waterbeds, heated stone loungers, a hydrotherapy pool and a rain shower.
