Princess Cruise Ships to Show Royal Wedding

Royal-watching romantics may not receive an invitation to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, but Anglophiles who long to see the prince’s love walk down the aisle can have a virtual front row seat to see the bride’s transformation into a princess aboard Princess Cruise Ships as the entire fleet (subject to satellite availability) broadcasts the royal wedding on April 29, 2011.

As the couple chart a course for a lifetime together as husband and wife at Westminster Abbey, passengers of the luxury liners will celebrate the majestic moment at viewing parties on board as they watch BBC World’s coverage of the happy occasion.

Adding extra touches of England to the voyage, viewing parties can drink toasts to the newlyweds with British-style refreshments and royal-themed cocktails, test their knowledge in a royal wedding trivia competitions and participate in a William and Kate look-alike contest.

“As this is the first British royal wedding in years we know there will be wide interest among our passengers,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president. “We at Princess also feel a connection with Prince William because his mother, Princess Diana, christened our original Royal Princess back in 1984.”

The iconic I do’s will be shown on Movies Under the Stars screens. The giant LED creens 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.
