SANTA CLARITA, Calif., Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Princess Cruises today has launched a new blog, " Linked by the Sea," exploring the many relationships that begin, or are rekindled, at sea. Featuring touching stories from both passengers and crew members, the blog will recount personal tales of friendship, romance and meaningful connections forged at sea.
On the heels of the line's two popular yearlong blogs that captured the attention of millions of readers –"50 Essential Experiences" and "Inspired to Cruise," – this new blog, found at LinkedbytheSea.com, will chronicle a new story each week throughout 2013."A cruise often includes the discovery of new friends or rekindled relationships that lead to meaningful or lifelong bonds," said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president. "We frequently hear amazing stories from our passengers and crew about people they connect with at sea. These moving tales provided the perfect theme for our third blog and we know they will touch readers." In the first post, revealed today, passenger Steve Deas tells how wearing a kilt on board became an icebreaker that led to an ongoing friendship with Princess Maitre d' Generoso Mazzone. This friendship led to a unique opportunity for Steve to surprise his wife with a secret vow renewal ceremony during a visit to Emerald Princess. What was supposed to be a friendly visit became an anniversary to remember. Blog readers are encouraged to share their own "Linked by the Sea" stories through the blog as well. Submissions to http://linkedbythesea.com/share-your-story/ will be considered for future blog posts.
