Cruise line Princess Cruise has accomplished another major milestone in preparation for the debut of its newest ship, Sky Princess, with the completion of sea trials.

The cruise ship set out to sea from the construction dock at Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy and was put through a series of maneuvers to test the propulsion, steering and navigational equipment.

After successful six days of trials, Sky Princess is now back in the shipyard for further exterior and interior works to prepare for the maiden October 20, 2019 Mediterranean & Adriatic cruise from Athens to Barcelona.

The 3,660-guest ship will sail a series of Mediterranean voyages before debuting in North America on December 1, 2019 for sailing a season of Caribbean cruises from Ft. Lauderdale.

The Princess Cruises fleet continues to expand with Enchanted Princess in June 2020, and three additional ships arriving in 2021, 2023 and 2025.
