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, 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 will be considered for future blog
