Tom & Mary-Movies Under The Stars-Caribbean Princess
Movies Under the Stars:
I had read quite a bit about Movies Under the Stars, a unique, innovative idea Princess has introduced on three of their ships and will also have it on the new Crown Princess that will sail a Caribbean itinerary out of the port of New York. The write-ups do not do it justice; it is a fabulous idea. If you’re a movie buff, run to the phone and call your agent as soon as you can and book a Princess ship that has this feature. I guarantee you will absolutely love it. The screen is unlike anything you or I have seen. It is a 300 sq. ft. screen, with a LED projection system that allows you to watch movies during bright sunlight the same as you do at night. You can view it from three decks. You can also view it while swimming, while relaxing in a hot tub, or cuddled up with your loved one under a blanket, while a waiter fetches you a drink and pop-corn. Tell me, how in the world can you beat that. They usually show four or five movies during the day and two first run movies at night, and fill in with concerts of famous entertainers like Tom Jones, Tina Turner and you name it and they have it. For movie buffs it’s worth the price of a cruise.
I have a question regarding the MUTS - when the movie or concert, etc. are showing does that mean everyone in that area (main pool area?) has no option but to listen or watch? I mean if you are reading a book and enjoying the sun and not interested in what's on the screen, it seems like that would be very distracting - and how loud is it anyway? Can the sound from the show be heard all over?
Yes, everyone can see and especially hear it, and the Tom Jones and Tina Turner shows we saw at night were EXTREMELY loud! However, during the day, there are 2 other, quieter pools to sit around, especially the one on the upper deck aft, quiet and lots of space.
