The company has also long been the leader in building ships specifically designed to accommodate an extensive number of the most sought-after shipboard luxury -- the private balcony.

Often imitated but never duplicated, the Princess concept of cruise vacation customization has since been adopted as the touchstone of new ship design for the entire cruise industry.
As befits the cruise line that starred in "The Love Boat," Princess continues to emphasize romance with a variety of special onboard features designed to help couples celebrate their love. Princess was the first " and is still currently the only " major North American cruise line on which passengers can be wed at sea by the ship's captain. In addition, the line regularly hosts vow renewal ceremonies, anniversaries and even dramatic marriage proposals with the unique "Engagement Under the Stars" program for passengers who want to "pop the question" on the ship's 300-square-foot LED Movies Under the Stars screen. Special room service packages help passengers enjoy time alone together with all the ingredients for a romantic evening.
