Princess offered few additional details of the new Sky Suites and didn't say how many there would be on Sky Princess. But a deck plan of the ship posted on the Princess website shows two large suites that match the line's description of the cabin category on Deck 18 overlooking the pool deck. An image accompanying the deck plan shows the suites will feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a separate living area with a sofa, dining table and chairs. It says they will measure 1,565 square feet.   

As previously announced, Sky Princess will be a sister to Princess's Royal Princess, Regal Princess and Majestic Princess. The three ships have debuted over the past five years.  
 
Currently under construction at a shipyard in Italy, Sky Princess will begin passenger operations on Oct. 20, 2019 with a seven-night Mediterranean cruise from Piraeus, Greece (the port for Athens) to Barcelona. The trip will feature calls at Kotor, Montenegro; Corfu, Greece; and Messina and Naples in Italy.

The voyage will be followed by three more seven-night sailings in the Mediterranean between Barcelona and Civitavecchia, Italy (the port for Rome). 

The newly announced Caribbean sailings will kick off with a three-day, round-trip cruise out of Fort Lauderdale departing on Dec. 4, 2019. The vessel then sails on alternating seven-day Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries round-trip from Fort Lauderdale from Dec. 7, 2019 through April 4, 2020.
