Last month I had the amazing opportunity to join Princess Cruises on the inaugural sailing of the newest ship to be added to their fleet – Sky Princess.
It's the first of its kind to be built from the ground up with Princess MedallionClass™Technology.
If you've followed me on my first Princess MedallionClass™ Cruise you may remember how easy it was to stay connected with my Ocean Medallion. This is what makes cruising with Princess so unique and It's only the size of a quarter but it's the key to really bringing MedallionClass™ to life. First thing you experience with your OceanMedallion is how easy it is to embark the ship.
Prior to embarkation day I got OceanReady. This allows me to log into my account to enter and scan all of my travel documents and personal information. So, when it's time to board all it takes is few taps of my OceanMedallion to get on board and start my vacation. I couldn't wait to board this brand new ship – the excitement was palpable.
We sailed from the port in Trieste, Italy which was such a beautiful charming city.
Immediately boarding the ship you could tell that the style, design decor was very clean and modern. Everything was just so new and sparkling.
The staterooms had an elevated look to them and were airy, light and open. Oh and the beds were so comfy – felt like sleeping on a cloud.
I highly recommend getting a balcony if you can. It just enhances your cruise experience and there's nothing like having a champagne breakfast with an endless view of the Mediterranean.
SAIL AWAY PARTY
On embarkation day get ready to fête!
I always look forward to the Sail Away Party. Everyone is so excited to be starting their vacations and the good times keeps on going with lots of entertainment, great music courtesy of DJ Mateo and live performances all on the lido deck.
Keep the tunes and the Aperol Spritzes coming!
All are welcome to the Sail Away Party and it's just a great way to kick off the cruise. I met so many people from all of the world that first night and became fast shipmates.
The Sanctuary is the adult-only tranquil resort like retreat. This is the perfect place to get some extra R +R.
Chill under a private cabana and enjoy one or two of the many signature drinks, meals and al fresco massages on hand. The Sanctuary is definitely for the quieter more low key cruiser (i.e. me).
THE SKY SUITES
This is the most amazing feature on Sky Princess – The infamous Sky Suites. It's the largest balcony at sea with a continuous 1000 square foot balcony and 270º panoramic view.
You can watch Movies Under the Stars right from your balcony! It's basically the most baller room you can get.
Perks of booking the Sky Suite is that you're welcomed with champagne and taken directly from curbside to your suite. It rooms up to 5 and you get your own private steward, reserved seating to shows and so much more.
SKY SUITES COCKTAIL PARTY
Princess Cruises threw all the influencers a private party in the Sky Suites and it was no fun at all.
I kid. I kid.
I had the best time, clearly.
It was the ulitmate way to see for myself the best room on the ship. The views were amazing but the company was even better. It was so lovely to chat up with the other influencers from the UK. They're accents – I die. So dreamy.
We sang, danced and drank fabulous signature Sky Vodka drinks by my favorite bartender on Sky, Juan. He also makes the best Aperol Spritzes!
Okay, so this had to be my favorite thing on Sky Princess – the world premier of their newest musical production ROCK OPERA!
If you know me you know that I absolutely love musical theatre. This show is all that and more. I couldn't stop dancing from my seat! I wanted to go to next performance right after.
I was obsessed with the show so much when I got to go back stage to meet some of the performers I was totally geeking out. They did that, okay!
Princess MedallionClass gives you so much more than just a cruise. With its innovative and effortless technology you can stay connected from thousands of miles away as you make connections on board and at every port of call. Sky Princess is definitely a one of a kind ship and there is so much more to discover that I simply can't put into words.
You're just going to have to experience it yourself! And today only you can book your next cruise just for $1 and free WiFi!
How amazing is that! Princess Cruises almost always has an offer and you will easily find a deal that works for you budget and schedule.
