Five years after revolutionizing the cruising industry with their Movies Under the Stars screens onboard their ships, Princess Cruises has now teamed up with film critic Leonard Maltin to bring passengers a new and innovative way to enjoy the movie experience onboard, with the exclusive Leonard Maltin Movie Club. This will be debuting fleetwide, and will give the opportunity for interested passengers to mingle with each other and discuss the specially selected movies during their cruise.
The Princess program will showcase a new film chosen by Leonard Maltin each calendar month. Passengers will be able to not only enjoy movies at poolside watching the outdoor bigscreen, but also gather for thought provoking discussions on the film being shown.
As part of his new relationship with Princess, Mr Maltin will be traveling aboard a Princess ship to share his movie insights with onboard presentations. His sailing will be announced at a later date.
Movies Under the Stars movie screens at poolside have been a innovative feature aboard Princess ships since debuting on the Caribbean Princess in 2004. They are now on the Crown Princess, Emerald Princess, Ruby Princess, Grand Princess, Star Princess, Golden Princess, and Sea Princess. The screens are more than 300 sq ft in size, with a 69,000 watt sound system, and lighting power to be able to show films even during the day and heard while the ship is moving at full speed.
