Tales Include College Sweethearts, Long-Lost Relatives, and a New Job
SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Princess Cruises’ blog, “Linked by the Sea” has chronicled five more stories of people who made new connections thanks to a cruise. These stories include romantic meetings, long-lost family members coming together, and even a new career and a spontaneous home-cooked meal.
Each week the blog, found at LinkedByTheSea.com, will illustrate how a cruise not only offers a relaxing retreat from which to explore the world, but often includes the discovery of new friends that lead to meaningful or lifelong relationships. Both passengers and crew tell about people they connect with at sea.
“Linked by the Sea” stories 11-15 are:
“Look Me Up, if You’re Ever in Town” – Passenger Olga Horkits discovered her shipboard waiter was quite a chef when she took him up on an invitation to visit his home for fresh-cooked Hungarian meal.
“You’re Working for Me Now” – Kerry Dee Ambler went aboard Grand Princess a passenger, but by the time the cruise ended she had a new career as a travel agent.
Long-Lost Sides of the Family Tree Reunite – When Roberta Goldstein sat down to dinner on her cruise she had no idea that one of her tablemates was part of a branch of her family that had lost touch.
Christmas in the Caribbean Brings College Sweethearts Together – Passenger Sophia Schneider was unsure about a Christmas cruise with her family, until she met Blake, a fellow classmate from her own hometown.
Shipmates Become as Close as Family – If not for a last-minute shore excursion, passenger Lori Pelentay would never have met Bob and Charlie, who became like a second set of parents for years to come.
Blog readers are encouraged to share their own “Linked by the Sea” stories through the blog as well. Submissions to linkedbythesea.com/share-your-story will be considered for future blog posts.
