Default This may sound like a strange question but...

My wife and I are movie buffs......and we are going on the Carribean Princess on Sept 9, Princess really promotes the movie under the stars so we were wondering what movies is princess currently showing......we usually see movie ever weekend...but have decided to stop up until the cruise so we could try and avoid seeing something we have seen....any one back from the carribean princess that could fill us in?

Go ahead and see your movies at home. When I was on the CP, they were all movies I had already seen. Heard once that they're ones that are out on DVDs.

We love movies too, and we see them both at theaters and in our home theater, but we seldom watch them on cruises. Too many other things to do aboard ship that you can't do at home. Movies under the stars is a cute novelty, but really no big deal. I don't think it makes any sense to change your movie habits in advance of a cruise. Once you get on board, if there's something that appeals to you and you've got nothing better to do, well, fine. But chances are you'll be occupied elsewhere.

Movies Under The Stars ( MUTS ) apparently isn't such a new idea.
A few weeks ago I picked up an old Hope/ Crosby / Lamour
" Road to Rio " movie . I think these were made in the late 30's-early 40's.
Hope and Crosby had stowed away on an ocean liner bound for Rio.
One scene showed the passengers sitting around on the main deck one night watching a movie. So it appears at least the idea has been around sometime.

Most of the movies shown are new dvd transfers so they are out of first run theaters. They also show dvd concerts like Jimmy Buffet and barry Manilow.

Yes, and many ships of the U. S. Navy have held movie call out on deck, weather permitting, in the past. This goes back at least to the 1930's.

When I was a kid in the 60's and early 70's, my family used to go on cruises frequently. We went on the Greek Line, the Queen Ana Maria, the Olympia, and also went on the Chandris Line Amerikanis among others. On those three ships over the course of several years, they showed movies in the movie theater. I saw the VERY SAME movie on all three ships. It was called "Viva Max," a comedy about Peter Ustinov and John Astin as Mexican Army guys in the 60's who decide to re-take the Alamo. Yes, I bought the VHS when it came out

Movies in the day time are kid oriented and REALLY LOUD. Sitting there in the baking sun watching movies just didn't cut it for us.

At night we preferred to go to the theatre productions (which were good) but honestly there was nothing special on MUTS. It's definitely NOT a selling feature for us.

the movies are all ones that have been out for a while but we did see a couple we hadn't seen before (just never got around to it at the theater). If you are sports fans then watching Monday night football, or college football or basketball games on the BIG screen is really fun. Once out in international waters, the sports feeds are international feeds, so very few commercials. You sometimes get to hear what the announcers are saying when they think their microphones are off which can be quite entertaining.

Daytime movies are generall G or PG rated. They did have Rocky Horror Picture show one night which was pretty funny to see with everyone, it started after midnight. They bring out the popcorn and blankets so it is fun to do the late ones. Also if you've seen them before you can come and go as you want!

You could try finding someone on the boards (here or other boards) who just got off the ship and ask them what movies were playing. Chances are, they will be the same ones you will be offered.

I can not believe that you go on a cruise to watch movies.Have to believe you could stay at home for a lot less expense.Oh well whatever floats your boat.Different strokes for different folks.

Last May, I seem to remember "Madagascar" playing for the kids in the afternoons, and at night we saw a Tom Jones concert and a Tina Turner concert. As someone said, they are EXTREMELY loud! The applause and screaming in the 2 concerts sounded like an aircraft landing on the ship!
Bring earplugs!

Default Movies Under The Stars

While this is a nice feature, for me there are too many other interesting things to do on a cruise. Some folks like to do this as I have seen quite a few cuddled up under their blankets when walking across the deck. We have friends who like the movies, but we like the shows, dancing & casino etc. We can't wait for our 32 day cruise on the Grand in April
