The Love Boat line saga continues

Princess Cruises are well known for their romantic associations. Their ships served as the setting for the popular "Love Boat" TV series in the 1970s and 1980s, acting marvellously as a backdrop for the vignettes of passengers and crew and their liaisons. Since its time on the silver screen, Princess has similarly hosted myriad real-life romantic occasions: honeymoons, anniversaries, weddings and more. With their elegant and stylish ships, chocolate journeys and beautiful destinations, the line is a top choice for those seeking an amorous adventure.

Love Stories
Starting from October, any Princess passenger in possession of a Kindle account will be able to add even more romance to their journey with three free love stories inspired by Princess cruises. The line has teamed up with Amazon to offer all its cruisers free downloads - the perfect accompaniment to a Princess holiday, according to Vice President Stuart Allison.

"We strive to provide engaging experience for our guests and we know they love to read, especially while on holiday" he said. "As part of our newly relaunched Princess Book Club, avid readers will be able to participate in exciting onboard events and enjoy great stories inspired by a Princess cruise."

The three books available free to those departing on a Princess cruise from October are short love stories, and are inspired by the experiences of their authors on Princess cruises in the lovely Caribbean. They are: Kiss Me Maybe by Heather Burch, To Catch a Bouquet by Carolyn Brown and Once Upon a Night at Sea by Barbara Longley. They will be available at for all passengers with Kindle devices or Kindle apps.

We can't think of a better added extra for a cruise holiday - a few cruising-related love stories for light reading on your balcony or by the pool. Princess does a great job of making their voyages just that little bit better with programs like this one.

Book Club Cruises
In addition to the free downloads, Princess have some special themed cruises lined up for those who really love their love stories. They will host the authors mentioned above as well as romance novelist Linda Lael Miller for two Caribbean itineraries. The sailings will include meet-and-greets with the authors, book club discussions, signings and more.

The two cruises are both Eastern Caribbean itineraries, departing from Fort Lauderdale. The first, 5 nights onboard the Regal Princess, leaves on the 3rd of November 2015. The second cruise is a week-long voyage on the Royal Princess leaving on the 8th of February 2016.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
