Pacific Princess makes a heart-stopping entry into Sydney on Valentine’s Day

A modern day Love Boat wears its heart on its bow to celebrate Valentine's Day
A 4.5-meter illuminated red heart decorated the bow of Princess Cruises’ Pacific Princess when the 30,000gt ship sailed into Sydney Harbour early Saturday morning to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

In honour of her namesake, the original Love Boat, Pacific Princess also sported a 4-meter high red heart painted on her funnel and was decked out with heart flags.
She was given special permission to play a ship’s horn rendition of the Love Boat theme as she passed the Sydney Opera House before docking at the White Bay Cruise Terminal.
Pacific Princess is visiting Sydney as part of a 111-night world voyage that departed Los Angeles on January 23.
She sails for Cairns at 10 p.m. on Sunday.
