I love the Love Boat song on leaving each port.

 

The only time we've heard this was one of our New York/Brooklyn sail aways.  That is out of nearly ten princess cruises.  At least I got to hear what everyone has been talking about once.  LOL

Thanks much.

I just asked about the champagne splits and they have discontinued them.

Very nice.
Don’t see Valencia on too many itineraries. Stopped there once on a TA; beautiful city.

Only 25 days to go and we'll be sitting on our aft balcony,  relaxing while watching the wake. This will be our first aft cabin.😎 Thanks for the preview Colo!

We are on the inaugural Dec 1-4 and then again on Jan 11 for the 7 night cruise. Very anxious to check it out. We sailed on the Celebrity Edge when it started and hated it. I do not think this will end that way.

I love hearing this each and every time.  Your sound is so much clearer than I've been able to capture.  Thanks for posting it.

On all Royal class ships the buffet has machines that make one cup of coffee at a time using grounds, not syrup.   They are not the best quality grounds but its ok.  

must be a new development. Didn't see it in Nov 2017 on Regal.

Thank you for posting this. We have been on many cruises, but this will be our first on Princess. We wanted to learn more about this line and ship and your review is great for that. Loving your review and looking forward to being on the Sky in March. Hope the weather is nice the rest of your cruise.

They have been on the Regal since we first cruised her in 2015. Since then we have sailed on her several times.

I posted photos of them and the hot chocolate machines last year.

I don’t remember seeing this mentioned before... was impressed to see real chinaware plates and bowls in World Fresh Marketplace tonight on our first visit there.  No more plastic!  Also...much nicer stemware in the main dining rooms 🍸🍷🥂👍🏻.   Minor things, but make for elevated dining experiences.   
 

also thought Rock Opera was a great show tonight!

strange. We were on Regal in 2016 and 2017 and saw no individual coffee machines. We'll be on her this Sunday - we'll look again.

They brew a cup at a time using grounds.  At the buffet beverage stations.

If you look closely at the machine in the middle you can see the grounds container on the top of the machine. 

Regal has the same machines.

That was a great year plus posting about the new Royal class. Memories.

Do you know if the soot problem on aft balconies on other Royal class ships has been resolved for the Sky?

We were also impressed by the proper plates and better glasses. Loved the new menu layouts too. I think Princess have knocked it out of the park with the Sky Princess. It’s our new favourite Princess ship.
