Princess Cruises made good on its Love Boat legacy by scoring a Guinness World Record for the largest multi-location vow renewal.

1,443 couples

Approaching Valentine’s Day, 1,443 couples reaffirmed their love during simultaneous ceremonies aboard three ships.

The ceremonies took place Feb. 11 on the top decks of Regal Princess, Royal Princess and Crown Princess, with official Guinness adjudicators on each ship for verification.

The previous record was 1,201 couples, set in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
