Carnival to Debut Poolside Television Screen on Liberty
If imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery, Princess Cruises must be ecstatic. Carnival has announced that its up-and-coming 110,000-ton Carnival Liberty will feature a 270-square-ft. poolside television screen -- similar to the then-revolutionary "Movies Under the Stars" screen that debuted on Caribbean Princess just last year (the concept has now spread to Grand Princess and Sea Princess).

"Carnival's Seaside Theatre" -- a 12-foot-high by 22-foot-wide screen located on the lido deck -- uses the same LED (light-emitting diode) technology used in Times Square to make it visible day and night, and the sound system will boom to the tune of some 70,000 watts.

Like Princess, Carnival's program will offer films, cartoons and other programming throughout the day (including special showings like national sports events), and complimentary popcorn will be offered. The poolside screen will also be used to display music videos during deck parties -- along with live shots of the band and party guests. Another unique tidbit? PlayStation 2 units will be connected to the system.

Carnival Liberty is slated to launch in July, and will sail the line's first-ever season in Europe during the summer and early fall.
