  1. We have cruised them both and enjoyed both cruises.
  2. Our Governor hasn't got a clue. All of the people that are thriving in Florida this past year are following CDC guidelines, despite his failure to lead.
  3. Will we ever reach full vaccination? There are too many people that won't do it and that upsets the Herd theory. The many variants that have evolved from the initial virus will make masks a safety necessity for a long time to come.
  4. The deck plans show 4 pools for Discovery: Retreat, Wakeview and 2 pools in center of Lido Deck (Sky Pools).
  5. When I stood in the Lido deck splash pool on the Royal, the water was knee deep. In the Sky aft pool it was waist deep to mid chest deep.I am 5ft. 4.
  6. The pool is around 3-4 ft. deep. It is just a nice cooling spot,.not really a swimming spot🙃.
  7. We enjoyed our cruise on the Sky and appreciated the differences between her and the Royal/Regal ships. Liked the Retreat area on the Regal better than the Sky. Easy access to the pool from the Sanctuary if you want to swim and the pool has a stair entry. I like the Sky decor and the new Princess Live area.The aft pool is shallow but larger than the aft pool on Regal. Each ship has its own personality and I can't wait to get on either one of them. Going for vaccine number 2 an hour from now. Hopefully we can all plan a cruise "soon".🙂
  8. This was taken in December from our deluxe balcony on deck 9aft on the Sky. IMG_3418.mov
  9. At this time, some of the ships with their crews, are anchored off the Bahamas. There is no news of new crew cases of the virus on the ships in weeks. The crews are healthy and safer out at sea than they would be on land. The virus, if still present on these ships, would make itself known for sure. The ships will be free of the virus long before the ships go back into service.
  10. Thank you Princess family. Great mood enhancer this morning.😍
  11. Yes we received the e-mail. They will be back and we will be back.😍
  12. Thanks for your review. We loved this beautiful ship and this sign brought tears.
  13. We are very happy with Princess and look forward to cruising with them in the future.
  14. Finally. Thank you Princess and I hope the rest of the cruise industry follows your lead.
  15. You mean to tell me that our government and medical experts can't find a place for the Grand too dock and yet they have not forced the cruise industry to shut down for a couple months. Where should we put ships full of people if the cruises continue and a passenger or crew tests positive? Enough with this lunacy!!
  16. Thanks for the wonderful review. We enjoyed the Sky in December and look forward to sailing her again. We didn't care for the way they served the salads in the little glasses at the IC either. However , I dumped my salad out of the glass onto the dish and that worked better for me. I did note that the marvelous display of salads at the buffet compared to the displays they used to have at the IC. I just wish they would serve the salads the way they used to. We never made it to the Salty Dog, but seeing the pictures of your lunch made us want to make it a must stop on the next cruise.😀
  17. The Wake View pool is also shallow at 3 feet and is basically just a pool to cool off in. The ladders in both the Retreat Pool and Wake View Pools have wide steps all the way to the bottom, making it easier to enter and exit for most people. I would not however, been able to use the pool if it was deeper and lacked the stairs. I guess they decided to make the two pools shallow and didn't have the depth to create a staircase. I never made it to the other pools.Were they shallow also?
  18. The Sky has the free movies on demand same as her sister ships.
  19. Boarding is usually on deck 5. You will be guided to the elevators for deck 6 as you enter the ship. Some cruises, we entered on deck 6.
  20. Yes it is. Should be on deck 6 until 1:30 PM- Estrella Dining room
  21. The IC is not in a small enclosed space like a cafe that can hold a couple dozen people. It is located on the bottom floor of a 3 story atrium without walls and doors enclosing it. A strong ventilation system keeps air circulating. There are other eateries on the three levels that can add to the aromas in the atrium as well. As long as my cappuccino has a fragrant aroma as I raise my cup to drink, I'm happy.😊
  22. We were in D730 on Sky, one deck up from Emerald deck and heard nothing.
