Not yet but we'll definitely be sailing on the Sky when it reaches the Caribbean in the winter of 2019.
I'm reading to many problems with the older ships lately, especially the food.
The only thing I don't like is that they'll only be sailing 7 day cruises.  Sad
It's much to short for us but I suppose they want to expose it to as many people as possible the first season.

Wondering if anybody as booked the new ship yet. Maybe I missed a posting.  I just booked a 21 day trans-atlantic that starts in Rome.

"Several residents brought to my attention a claim made by Brian Salerno, CLIA’s Senior Vice President of Maritime Affairs, that the sludge from cruise ship smokestack scrubbers (designed to reduce emissions, primarily sulfur),  is stored onboard and offloaded, allegedly, only at facilitates ashore. He promised that the cruise industry would not dump the sludge overboard,  where the particulate matter and sulfur sludge obviously would pollute the water and foul the local beaches and port facilities.

The CLIA representative said that the cruise ship scrubber processing equipment “ultimately collects sludge” which “has to be disposed of properly ashore.”

"Following complaints in mid-June of a cruise ship discharging discolored water while docked in Ketchikan, city officials investigated and say the discharge was from the Golden Princess cruise ship’s exhaust scrubbers.

In a July 24th memo, City Public Works Director Mark Hilson writes that those in-port discharges may not comply with regulations, and are under investigation by state and federal enforcement officials.

Hilson says the ship’s agent turned off the discharge after a notification from the city. The city also has notified Cruise Line Agencies of Alaska to cease all non-compliant discharges while in port."

I'm holding off on any criticism until I see the final result.
They just might have made a few changes to the Royal design that could improve some of the drawbacks of the last few ships.
Yes, it is big but larger ships are about the only way to keep up profits.

"The Love Boat line on Monday announced plans for two new vessels that will measure 175,000 tons – more than 20 percent bigger than its biggest ships to date.
Scheduled to debut in 2023 and 2025, respectively, the as-yet-unnamed vessels will carry approximately 4,300 passengers at double occupancy. That's about 700 more than recently unveiled Princess ships such as Regal Princess.

Princess didn't release design details for the new ships other than to say they would be powered by liquid natural gas – a first for the line.
