Princess Cruises has long been a leader in romance, setting the standard for love on the high seas – from serving as the co-star of “The Love Boat” TV series, to being the first cruise line to offer weddings at sea.
In celebration of the line’s favorite holiday, Princess Cruises partnered with Wakefield Research to survey 1,000 U.S. adults to find out their ideal Valentine’s Day gifts and activities.
Of those surveyed, a vacation (26%) was twice as popular as receiving flowers (13%), jewelry (11%), chocolate (10%) or other gifts. When asked what their ultimate romantic vacation would be, the majority of respondents’ (55%) chose a cruise to the Caribbean. Another interesting result: nearly half (43%) of women surveyed would give up sex over chocolate for a week, while only 24% of men would do the same.
As one of the world’s most well-known cruise lines, Princess Cruises’ ships will sail to romantic destinations around the globe this Valentine’s Day, including respondents’ favorite location, the Caribbean. In celebration of the holiday, romantic options available include:

A couple’s massage in a private ocean view treatment room with whirlpool at the Lotus Spa
And wine and chocolate pairings as part of the Chocolate Journeys program, created by reknowned chocolatier, Norman Love
A romantic night out watching “Movies Under the Stars” on the top deck
Princess celebrity ambassador Gavin MacLeod, who played Captain Merrill Stubing on The Love Boat isn’t surprised that respondents selected a Caribbean cruise as their ultimate romantic getaway. “It’s always been a favorite destination of guests and the celebrities who came aboard for the show. But, there is nothing more romantic than a Princess cruise – no matter where you sail!”
