Yes, it was definitely on TV

My DW and I were on the Magic when President Obama was inaugurated the first time. We were docked in St. Thomas, I think, and thought we'd missed it, but there was a time zone difference, so we happened to be in the Cove Café when the Inauguration came on, so, purely by luck rather than good planning, saw it happen.

So I can tell you that then it was definitely on TV, and it wasn't clips, it was live. Whether that's true this time or not I can't say, but I tend to think that if you go to any of the adult bars that have TVs, they are likely to have it on screen. It shouldn't matter whether you're in port or at sea. Ask at Guest Services, but generally speaking, when there's a major event (e.g. SuperBowl, major weather event, inauguration, etc.) it will be available somewhere for viewing.

Hope this helps!

Same here. That's also why we love going to Disney.
