‘Movie Under the Stars’ proves a hit for Caribbean Princess

One of the most acclaimed features on Caribbean Princess when she debuted last week, the “Movies Under the Stars” poolside theater has already made such a splash that Princess will expand the concept and install additional screens on all of its seven-day Caribbean vessels. These screens will be added to Princess’ trademark Grand-class ships, Grand Princess, Golden Princess and Star Princess.

“Movies Under the Stars has proven to be an immediate hit with both travel agents and passengers,” said Jan Swartz, Princess’ senior vice president of sales and customer service. “Everyone loves to go to the movies, but few have the opportunity to watch them while floating in the pool mid-day or while enjoying a cocktail in the evening.

“This million-dollar screen is more than 300 square feet in size with a 69,000-watt sound system and has sufficient lighting power to be seen clearly at mid-day and heard clearly even while the ship is moving at full speed - offering passengers a movie experience comparable to the best shoreside movie theater.”

Caribbean Princess’ giant Times Square-style LED screen shows a variety of entertainment throughout the day, including up to three feature length films. In addition to family cinema and first run hits, passengers can enjoy major sporting events and other can’t-miss programming.

Complimentary chaise lounge reservations, special movie theme cocktails and casual dining are offered to round out the ultimate poolside experience.
