STAR-LIT FLICKS: Everyone loves the movies, but how to catch ’em while floating in a pool or sipping cocktails under a blue-velvet sky? Princess Cruises’ “Movies Under Stars” poolside theater on Caribbean Princess has created such splash, the line is ramping up on other Grand Class ships, Grand Princess, Golden Princess and Star Princess. The million-dollar screens – 300 square feet with 69,000 watt sound – have what it takes to be seen at mid-day and heard while moving at top speed. Caribbean Princess’ huge Times Square-style LED (Light Emitting Diode) screen shows assorted entertainment throughout the day, from first-run hits to can’t miss sports events. Adding to the cachet are complimentary chaise lounge reservations, special movie theme cocktails, and casual dining options.
