princessvow.jpgThe TV series Love Boat was filmed on board Princess cruise ships, and the line regularly tops polls of romantic venues. So it’s no surprise to see 300 couples here renewing their wedding vows in a group ceremony on board Crown Princess on St Valentine’s Day.
They are all taking part in a special Romance Summit-themed cruise and have been joined by US reality TV stars Trista and Ryan Sutter, whose television wedding in 2003 was watched by an audience of 26 million. The couple clearly enjoy their cruises – they were chosen to be godparents to sister ship Ruby Princess.
Also on board are Gavin MacLeod, who played Captain Merrill Stubbing in The Love Boat series; relationships expert Dee Frazier – known as the “dating diva”, and wedding planner Lisa Light,
The ship left Fort Lauderdale in Florida yesterday for a seven-day Caribbean cruise, and throughout the week there will be plenty of special romantic events, including tonight’s Valentine’s Gala.
