Nine Ships to Showcase Worldwide Soccer Spectacle
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (June 6, 2018) – Princess
guests sailing all over the world will be able to spectate and cheer on their
favorite team during the single biggest tournament of the most popular sport on
the planet – the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™. Broadcasting all 64 soccer games
aboard nine cruise ships, the matches start June 14, culminating with the final
in Moscow on July 15.
Games will air on the cruise line's signature
Movies Under the Stars outdoor screens, which have space for hundreds of guests
to catch the action and watch the ball hit the net.
"After our guests return to their cruise ship
from a day of exploring exciting destinations, they will be thrilled to watch
the worldwide phenomenon of the FIFA World Cup," said Jan Swartz, Princess
Cruises president. "What better way to enjoy this dynamic, global tournament
than on our giant outdoor movie screens against the backdrop of sea and sky."

The FIFA World Cup™
is just one of many special events shown on the Movies Under the Stars screens,
including Monday Night Football, the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards. The
giant LED screens are more than 300 square feet in size, with a 69,000-watt
