Television personalities Trista and Ryan Sutter will serve as attendants and former captain of the Love Boat Gavin MacLeod will be giving away the bride.

The new Ruby Princess liner will offer guests a Lotus Spa and fitness centre, a number of different restaurants and a children's centre - and those caught up in the romantic mood could even get wed in the onboard wedding chapel.
