Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess will have the largest balconies ever offered by a cruise line, according to Princess Cruises.

The two Sky Suites will be in the centre of the ships’ top decks, with one measuring 1,012 square feet and the other 947 square feet – both around half the size of a tennis court.

Up to five passengers will be able to sleep in each of the suites which will have two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dining area with skylight.

Sky Princess will sail a short season in the Mediterranean after it launches in October 2019, before heading to the Caribbean.

Enchanted Princess will launch in Southampton in June 2020 before sailing in the Mediterranean.

Princess Cruises’ UK and Europe vice president Tony Roberts tweeted: “@PrincessCruises⁩ continues to innovate by introducing the largest balconies at sea, available when sailing in the Sky Suites onboard the new Sky Princess and Enchanted Princess.

“The balconies will offer 270 degree views and a private vantage of Movies Under The Stars screen.”
