Are You Amped About Sky Princess 2019?

Based on this photo Princess Live is open to the hallway with furniture that’s more like a lounge than a TV studio...the Sky’s version looks more like the Explorers Lounge that was eliminated from Royal-class ships.

A LOT more appealing than the original.  

I hate that old space.

Yes, I posted these other pictures earlier in the thread - no more tv studio but tables and comfy seats!

Well at least Princess has listened to all the bad feedback from the original princess lives and have vastly improved the space

Yet they still insist it is an artist rendering, as pointed out earlier.

I have to confess, I didn’t go into Princess Live once on my last 6 Regal cruises. Did notice it was often standing room only as I walked by. Was thinking to check out Voice of the Ocean this time (if that’s where it happens) as will have nieces along who will enjoy it. Those of you who frequented P.Live...do you think capacity will be severely reduced with the comfier seating?

I’m just sad that my favourite seating area has been taken over for al fresco dining on both sides ☹️. Also wondering how many people will sit there long after their meals are over, nursing a coffee, and keeping others from the al fresco dining, because the views of the water will be stunning. 

Though we've only been on NCL once, so not much of a data point, we didn't notice the Al Fresco/outside dining to be hugely crowded, but doubtless you're correct. Still, they do it much better than Princess's attempt....

Looking forward to your impressions of this ship.We don't board until December.

As a few others have noted, I too have been disappointed in the lack of stairs into the

pools but noticed something different about the ladders. They look like they may extend to make it  like stairs. Hope someone can check this out.😊

On the Fincantieri website, it refers to an event on October 15 at 11:00am local time.  Does anyone know what that is?  I assume it is when it leaves the shipyard?

I just saw on Princess Instagram that they officially get the ship tomorrow.

If anyone on the Sky is taking requests, I would love to see the Ocean Terrace menu.

Until that happens, here is a link to one.  Not sure it is current, but gives you an idea what was on the Royal and Regal.

Hope it works.

There’s also an excellent slide show from an event on board yesterday that was posted by sbaker under the thread New Sky Princess Photos.
