The 1,000 seat Princess Theater is
Regal Princess' largest entertainment
venue. It is equipped with advanced
technology such as large LED panels that
can be used to augment the scenery for the
shows. Beyond the stage, there is lighting
on the walls of the theater which can be
used to provide effects during the shows.
While in most respects very similar, this
theater differs from the one on Royal
Princess in that side aisles have been
created to reduce congestion entering and
exiting the theater.
In addition to being used for production shows, The
Princess Theater is also used for shows by visiting
artists such as: The Beatlemaniacs, a Beatles tribute
band; Magician Levant; and singer Jesse Hamilton.
During the day, the Princess Theater is used for
various events including a lighthearted cooking
demonstration by Maitre d'Hotel Silvio Zampieri and

complete with cameras and a live
audience. Many of the events in this
venue are broadcast over the ship's
television system and/or recorded for
showing at a later date.
Events in Princess Live include such
things as a culinary demonstration by
the ship's chefs (above right); an
interview with author Sarah Jio; game
shows with the ship's activity staff;
and enrichment lecture about building
cruise ships by Princess engineer
Chris Joly (right). This venue is also
used for trivia contests and karaoke.
At the stern of the ship is another large
entertainment venue, the Vista Lounge. This
venue offers cabaret style seating for shows

ship's production cast and activities staff
(above). It is also used as a venue for

Movie lovers can watch recent releases on the giant LED screen
at the aft end of the Fountain Pool area. During evening
performances at Movies Under The Stars, popcorn and
cookies are served to the audience while they relax in their deck
chairs. If you miss a movie on MUTS, it will appear as an
on-demand selection on the flat screen television in your
stateroom. The in-cabin television has a wide selection of
complimentary movies, TV shows and documentaries as well as
various television channels.
The European-style Princess Casino is a large
venue with gaming, slot machines and its own bar.
Weather-permitting, the Fountain Pool area is an
entertainment venue. There are displays called
"Watercolor Fantasies" in which colored lights
are played upon the fountain sprays as they rise
and fall to recorded music.
The area is also used for deck parties with live
music and performances by the ship's production
cast that include the fountains.
