Celebrate Special Moments on a Cruise
By Family Features
Princess Cruises, one of the most famous names in sea-going vacations, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015. To commemorate this important milestone, the company is honoring the iconic TV show, “The Love Boat,” which first introduced viewers to Princess Cruises and the art of cruising.
Celebrating the past and future
The beloved TV series premiered nearly forty years ago and became one of the highest-rated and longest-running series on television. "The Love Boat" was originally filmed aboard Sun Princess back in 1977, and now the six original cast members of “The Love Boat” have reunited to serve as “godparents” for Princess Cruises' newest cruise ship, the Regal Princess.
"I'm thrilled to join my former cast mates to christen the new Regal Princess before its maiden Caribbean season,” said Gavin MacLeod, who starred as Captain Merrill Stubing in the hit TV series. “I couldn't be happier that 'The Love Boat' has played such a big role in Princess Cruises' history, and now we get to celebrate the company’s golden anniversary."
Create special memories with a cruise
Just as Princess Cruises is celebrating this special anniversary, many people have found a cruise vacation to be a perfect way to celebrate their own anniversary or milestone occasion. For couples considering a cruise for their anniversary or honeymoon, Princess Cruises offers a number of special touches to ensure a romantic and unforgettable experience -- including couples massages, wine and chocolate pairings and specialty dining. The line even offers weddings at sea.
A cruise celebration isn't just for couples, however. A cruise ship also provides the perfect setting for a family reunion. A memorable family reunion should include a variety of fun activities, family bonding and relaxation. Cruise ships appeal to all age groups because there is something for everyone — play or lounge by day, dine together at night.
Princess offers family friendly activities such as Movies Under the Stars, a large outdoor movie screen playing first-run movies; sporting events and concerts; and a unique water and light show. Families will also appreciate Princess' special discounts for groups of 16 or more guests.
Whether it's a special anniversary, a family get-together, or just a much-deserved vacation, now is the perfect time to consider a cruise. Princess Cruises will celebrate its 50th Anniversary with a number of onboard festivities and special cruise vacation offers. To book your next getaway, visit www.princess.com.
