Default Adds in Freedom hot tubs?

I just noticed in the artist renderings of the cnaterlevered hot tobs there are video displays above. I sure hope this doesn't mean the intend to play adds 24X7.

I've looked at this same picture a dozen times and have never noticed the video displays before....

on the interactive website, there are no screens in that area. Where do you find the artist rendering photos?

Default SO.....What if they do show ads?

Are you saying:

You won't sail on the Freedom if there are ads......
You won;t endulge in the hot tubs if there are ads.....
You won't look at the screens if there are ads.....
You will sail on Freedom and use the hot tubs, but won't look....
You will sail on Freedom and use the hot tubs, and look at the screens, but won't like it......

Looking forward to your review

My plan is to have my back toward the screen and be facing the water!!! That is the whole point of having the tubs be cantilevered!

Maybe I'm just not having a good night. This is another post that has given me pause to wonder. What about that picture made you think they'd play ads 24X7? On the same page, they talk about music underwater in the pool, do you think they're going to play the RCL theme song 24 hours a day? If you walk into a hotel do you expect to have the TV in your room play ads all day?

megessey,
The picture is on page 4 of Issue 4 2005 of the Crown and Anchor magazine. Least that's where I found it.

Maybe they will play RCTV or some other neutral programming. I noticed the screens on one of the renderinga but didn't leap to thinking of ads.

Why are you assuming the worst? First of all, do you really think they would do that??? Second, I assumed they would show sports or something. Why do you assume it will be adds 24/7???

All I noticed in the pics was the great view and the nice ledge on which I can perch my cocktail. Why on earth would one assume they would be running ads?

Great! I own an ad agency and sell advertising. That would be a great way for me to target a captive audience.



YES I'M KIDDING!!!!!

The video screens are for PPV movies. When you are sitting in the hot tub you can rent wireless headphones to listen to the movie.....
