Australian and New Zealand Travel Agents were among the first on board Princess Cruises’ brand new ship, Sky Princess, the first ship designed from the ground up as a Princess MedallionClass ship.

The 3,660-guest ship sailed a four-night shakedown cruise from Trieste to Athens last week, with top Aussie Agents among those on board the special cruise.

The group was the first to attend the new onboard entertainment show, Rock Opera, and enjoyed dining at speciality restaurants including, Sabatini’s Italian Restaurant and The Crown Grill.

The new flagship vessel is said to “feature an evolution of the design platform used for the cruise line’s previous Royal-Class ships”.

The ship features the complimentary OceanMedallion wearable device (aka a personal concierge for passengers).

MedallionClass Holidays promise to deliver a new level of service creating a holiday that is more seamless, effortless and personalised.

The lucky agents were able to test run the innovative technology.
