Poolside Parties Offer Top-Deck Tailgating Combined With Dramatic Viewing
Experience on Giant 'Movies Under the Stars' Screens
SANTA CLARITA, Calif., Jan. 30 /CNW/ -- Football fans aboard Princess
ships will have an opportunity to enjoy a super tailgate party at sea on
February 4, with prime viewing of the match-up between the Chicago Bears and
Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLI. The "Big Game" will be broadcast to
passengers in a very big format, on the vessels' 300-square-foot super-size
"Movies Under the Stars" screens.
Passengers aboard Caribbean Princess, Crown Princess, Sea Princess and
Grand Princess will be able to follow the action between the AFC and NFC
Champions, broadcast by ESPN International, while enjoying an array of
tailgate treats including specially prepared chili, pigs-in-a-blanket,
hamburgers, pizza, and other "munchies" to complement the game.
"It's hard to think of a more perfect venue to watch this famous
face-off, than under our 'Movies Under the Stars' screen," said Jan Swartz,
Princess' senior vice president of customer service and sales. "Enjoying the
game on this giant screen, sitting outside on the top deck of one of our
beautiful ships and enjoying a special Super Bowl party is sure to offer loads
of fun for our passengers."
Most Princess ships without "Movies Under the Stars" screens will also
show the game (depending on satellite availability) and host Super Bowl
parties in one or more of the ship's public lounges.
The Super Bowl is one of many special events and features shown daily on
Princess' giant Times Square-style "Movies Under the Stars" LED screens. The
unique, 300-square-foot screens show up to seven movies or events daily,
including family films and first run hits, as well as concert footage and
other special programming. In the evenings, lounge chairs are covered with
special cushions and blankets and Princess' hallmark poolside service is
available to enhance the viewing experience with free popcorn plus a variety
of drink specials and movie nibbles. The upcoming Emerald Princess will also
feature a "Movies Under the Stars" screen when it debuts in April.
