Football Action Super Sized at Sea

Princess Cruises Movies Under the Stars

Where will you watch the Big Game?

As the snow cleanup continues in Dallas, TX, before the Big Game tomorrow, Super Bowl fans across the country are preparing for the big day.   Most have stocked up on their favorite munchies and beverages and invited friends over to watch the game on their big screen TV.   Others, will be heading to their favorite watering hole to watch the game on one or more big screen TVs.   While yet others have a very different location for watching the Big Game....  onboard their favorite cruise ship.

Royal Caribbean and ESPN Teamed Up

All the gridiron action of Super Bowl XLV sets sail on Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas® for the second annual Super Bowl at Sea on February 3, 2011.   Lucky fans that booked this cruise will have the following special events:

Super Bowl at Sea Viewing Party
Catch the Cowboys Stadium showdown live on the jumbo screen in the Studio B. Besides the main venue, the game will be broadcast at bars and lounges throughout the ship.

"Football vs. Futbol" Events Lineup

Hang with ESPN hosts, NFL players, and Soccer players
ESPN commentators Robbie Earle, Shaka Hislop, and Tommy Smyth will be onboard to host "Football vs. Futbol" matchups and partake in all the Super Bowl Sunday action.  In addition to ESPN hosts, spend time with NFL players Verron Haynes and Rod Coleman and Soccer players onboard.

Super Bowl XLV to Star on Princess Cruises 
"Ultimate Big Screen" 

Football fans aboard all Princess Cruises ships around the world will have the opportunity to enjoy a super tailgate party at sea this Sunday February 6, with prime viewing of the match-up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV. The "Big Game" will be broadcast fleetwide to passengers, including viewing on the ships' 300-square-foot super-size "Movies Under the Stars" screens.

Passengers will be able to follow the action between the AFC and NFC Champions, plus see the halftime show with a performance by the Black Eyed Peas. Fans can enjoy the game with an array of tailgate treats including specially prepared chicken wings, pizza, pigs-in-a-blanket and other game day "munchies," plus beer specials.

The Super Bowl is one of several special events shown on the Movies Under the Stars screens, which will also broadcast the Academy Awards on February 27. The giant LED screens are more than 300 square feet in size with a 69,000-watt sound system and have sufficient lighting power to be seen clearly at mid-day and heard even while the ship is moving at full speed -- offering cruise passengers a movie experience comparable to the best shoreside movie theater.
Two-story Screen on Norwegian Epic

Norwegian Cruise Line will broadcast the Super Bowl

The game will be broadcast on most of its ships on Sunday, Feb. 6. The game will not be shown on the Norwegian Jade in Europe. The game will be shown on the two-story screens on Norwegian Pearl, Gem and Epic. Guests can also enter for a chance to win a jersey provided by MillerCoors Brewing Company when purchasing any Coors Light, Miller Light or Miller Genuine Draft beer during the Super Bowl sailing.

These are just a few of the Big Screens that will be Broadcasting the Big Game at Sea tomorrow.   I suspect that if you are reading this, you are probably not onboard one of those ships.  But, fear not, the Super Bowl is an annual event, so start planning today for next year - call or write me to learn about your options.
