Couples share real-life tales of love connections made during sailings

February 12,, the United States' largest organizer of hosted singles cruises, is sharing real-life tales of love connections made during sailings. Through exclusive events planned just for guests of, including onboard parties and social mixers, solo travelers have the opportunity to meet like-minded, single, cruise enthusiasts on their cruise vacation. For some, time spent on cruises – which take place aboard some of the most popular cruise ships in the world – turned into something more than just friendship: tying of the knot.

" is best known for creating lifelong friendships during our cruises, but occasionally, love connections occur. We plan so many fun and laid back activities during our cruises, creating an authentic experience where our guests find it easier to meet someone," said Sharon Concepcion, Director of "One of the benefits to taking a singles cruise is that solo travelers have the opportunity to meet potential love interests from all over the country that they would never have met otherwise. You just never know when you'll find the match for you."

Shelly Weiss of Rock Hill, South Carolina, went on eight cruises before she found love. The couple, who married in July 2013 and now have a one-year-old daughter named Grace, met through the social media community back in 2009. And if you ask Shelly, she wasn't looking for love. "I didn't think it was possible to find love on a singles cruise, mostly because I wasn't looking for it. I enjoyed spending time with all of my new traveling friends from around the globe. Love happened…eventually."

Brian Barngrover of Hollywood, Florida, met his wife on's 2010 Halloween cruise, which was also his first cruise. Barngrover, who was living in Seattle at the time, was convinced by a friend to take the cruise. Prior to the trip, he used the social media feature provides to its guests so they may meet and get to know other solo travelers prior to cruising. That's how he initially met his wife, who was living in Medellin, Colombia, at the time. They enjoyed spending time together on the cruise and continued a long-distance relationship before tying the knot in 2013. "If you are thinking about taking a cruise with, you are guaranteed to meet new people from all different walks of life and different cultures, and walk away with new friends," said Barngrover. "I am thankful for, because it made me the happiest person. Because of that cruise, I found my soulmate. Had it not been for my convincing friend, and taking that, I wouldn't be this happy."
