Princess Cruises has teamed up with Amazon to offer cruise ship passengers three free romance e-books. The short love stories, written by well-known authors Carolyn Brown, Heather Burch and Barbara Longley, were inspired by their own Princess cruise experiences sailing to the beautiful Caribbean.
Not only will you be able to read the free e-books using a Kindle e-reader, tablet or app but the authors themselves will be sailing with you. Brown, Burch and Longley, along with New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Linda Lael Miller, will be sailing aboard a five-day Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard Regal Princess, departing Ft. Lauderdale November 3, 2015. Onboard the authors will participate in meet-and-greets, book club discussions and also offer book signings.
“We strive to provide engaging experiences for our guests and we know they love to read, especially while on vacation, so teaming up with Kindle Love Stories is a perfect match,” said Adrian Fischer, Princess Cruises vice president, entertainment experience. “As part of our newly relaunched Princess Book Club, avid readers will be able to participate in exciting onboard events and enjoy great stories inspired by a Princess cruise.”
Many cruise ships have famous people riding aboard as part of the draw, there has been artists, musicians and washed up actors. This is the first time that a cruise ship line is partnering with Amazon to bring authors aboard and at the same time provide free e-books.
