Enter a world of entertainment without even leaving your room. Princess Live! is a TV studio with talk shows, demonstrations and performers, beamed live to your cabin from 8am to midnight, or you can join a 300-strong studio audience. The innovation is on new ships Royal Princess and Regal Princess along with a state-of-the-art theatre with musical reviews and shows, and on-deck water and light shows. Princess is also known for Movies Under The Stars, huge on-deck screens showing movies, music specials and more well into the evening – the screens on the new ships are 30 per cent larger than before. Theatres are larger, too, seating 925 people with various musical spectaculars available. Elsewhere across the fleet you’ll find comedy, magic and cabaret.
