Princess Cruises brings The Love Boat to Sydney

Original The Love Boat star Jill Whelan spreads the love in Australia aboard Royal Princess.

Ahead of Valentine’s Day 2024, original cast member of The Love Boat and Princess Cruises Celebrations Ambassador Jill Whelan was in Australia to celebrate love at sea.

More than 40 years after her last visit to Australia, Jill Whelan, who played Vicki Stubing in the iconic show, is joined guests aboard Royal Princess for a special event spreading the love with Princess Perfect Weddings.

Her visit comes as more Australian couples choose to have their dream day at sea. 

“I was lucky enough to star on The Love Boat onboard Pacific Princess from the age of 12 and grew up seeing some of the most amazing love stories play out on the show,” said Whelan. “As the Celebrations Ambassador of Princess Cruises, I am excited to see so many Aussies continuing to experience romance and share the love onboard our cruise ships, just as I did all those years ago.”

Princess Cruises Senior Vice President Asia Pacific, UK & Europe Stuart Allison said that in this current high cost-of-living climate, weddings at sea are a more cost-effective way for Aussies to celebrate their special day.

“Booking a wedding with Princess Cruises has never been more affordable and accessible than today,” said Mr Allison.

Princess Perfect Weddings create unforgettable moments by offering packages tailored for couples seeking unique and romantic ways to say “I do,” including grand ceremonies in The Love Boat’s picturesque piazza as well as outside deck areas that offer breathtaking venues with stunning ocean views, providing a perfect backdrop for a romantic ceremony, at a price significantly lower compared to land-based venues.

It includes everything couples need to make planning their special day easy. From fresh flowers, photography, live music, and freshly baked wedding cakes. Princess Perfect Weddings offer couples a range of options, ensuring that every proposal, wedding ceremony and vow renewal vision can be realised, from intimate gatherings to grand celebration.

Ship captains serve as the ceremony officiant and all packages include a dedicated wedding specialist who works closely with couples pre-cruise and on board to tailor their wedding package according to their unique vision.
