Couple plan Ruby Princess wedding

Date Posted: 04 Nov 2008
Princess Cruises will celebrate the launch of its new ship by holding a wedding during the naming ceremony, it has been reported.

Danielle Vurpillat and Kip Hickman from California are to get hitched on November 6th during the ceremony to name Princess Cruises' newest addition, the Ruby Princess liner.

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 couple entered a competition to win the unique prize, writing in their
submission that it was their dream to create their very own "romantic milestone" by getting married aboard the Ruby Princess.

Jan Swartz, senior vice-president of Princess Cruises, said: "We aim to make this a fantastic romantic milestone for Danielle and Kip as they begin their life together as husband and wife."

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.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
