Princess Cruises has coupled with Amazon’s online romance community Kindle Love Stories to offer guests three free, original stories to enjoy during their cruise holidays as well as special sailings with bestselling romance authors.
From October, Princess Cruises’ guests and Kindle users, including those using a Kindle app on any device, will be able to download the free stories at www.amazon.com/allamour
The short love stories, written by well-known romance writers Carolyn Brown, Heather Burch and Barbara Longley, were inspired by their own Princess cruise experiences sailing to the beautiful Caribbean.
The Princess Cruises-inspired romance stories include Kiss Me Maybe by Heather Burch, To Catch a Bouquet by Carolyn Brown and Once Upon a Night at Sea by Barbara Longley.
The three authors, along with bestselling author Linda Lael Miller, will join a five-day Eastern Caribbean cruise onboard Regal Princess, which departs Fort Lauderdale on November 3, 2015. Guests onboard will enjoy meet-and-greets as well as book club discussions with the authors, who will also offer book signings. Fares on this special voyage start at $659* per person.
Princess Cruises Vice President Stuart Allison said the new partnership with Kindle Love Stories was a perfect match.
“We strive to provide engaging experiences for our guests and we know they love to read, especially while on holiday,” Mr Allison said.
“As part of our newly relaunched Princess Book Club, avid readers will be able participate in exciting onboard events and enjoy great stories inspired by a Princess cruise.”
Kindle Love Stories Marketing Manager Laura Hoffman said Kindle Love Stories was a place for romance readers to engage with their favourite books and authors.
“We’re so excited to be collaborating with Princess Cruises to bring that experience in-person with these events,” Ms Hoffman said.
