Do You Watch the Movies on Cruise Ships?

Most cruise ships offer movies either in your stateroom over the TV or in a public area theater or both. Do you watch them in either of these locations? What do you think of the types of movies offered?

No I don't. I like to catch up on reading when I'm on a cruise. I make it a goal to finish off at least one book during a cruise.

We watch them in the atrium sometimes.

I will confess. unless it's late, late at night we do not watch alot of tv. I have not sailed on a ship that has Dive in movie. We will be on the Carnival Triumph in November. I would like to watch a movie outside. I think that anything that families have access to should be rated any higher then pg13, especially in public areas. Anything higher than that can be put on the tv in your cabin. But I would like to see movies up to date on the cruise ship.

yes, if it is one I havent seen

Monique and I have watched the movies on deck on Princess, It was fun and we had popcorn.

Enjoyed the experience. Don't really watch tv in the room except for the ship activities and such.

We like to watch the "drive-in" movies if the weather permits. Sitting in a deck chair with popcorn and a "cruise drink" is great fun. I have been driven off by weather, but the DH is made of sturdier stuff.Wink

Yes we watch them in the Dive in Theatre on the Carnival cruise ships. It is a fun experience sitting out under the stars. Doesn't matter the movie really, it is just the experience.

Yes, we do watch them. We have seen movies we usually would not rent or go see. Have been pleasently surprised a few times. I like that they offer them.

I am married to a TV/movie-holic. So yes, in the cabin, on the Movies Under the Stars at night, and on the big MUTS screen during the day sitting poolside. I always know where to find her during a sunny day as I do other things about the ship -- just head to the big screen viewing area.

Last cruise on the Regal Princess they have their own TV station so the movie library on the cabin TV was pretty extensive. It was mid - December so they newer movies, classic movies, documentaries, Christmas movies, Love Boat reruns, and others that I do not recall.

Oh, and she HAS to have TV on all night - so yes, LOTS of movies! (I know, TMI).

I've found too much other entertainment on board that I do not do at home, so I rarely experience the movies.
