Has Anyone Run into This Princess Passenger

Recommended Posts

Yes!  We've been on the same ship with Illene Weiner a couple of times and meet and chatted with her many times at Crooner's.  She's a very nice and quite friendly person.  :classic_smile:

I believe she was on our cruise last month. I didn’t meet her but a couple at dinner one night said they spoke with her at the elite dinner earlier in the week.

She's a lovely lady. We were assigned to a table at second seating dining with her and her husband on the Ruby several years ago. From reading this article, it sounds like he's not around anymore. Sad. But I'm glad she's found someone to share her love of cruising.

We were table mates on the Crown Princess when Ilene met Carl, another one of our table mates.

Fun to see the romance develop, a true Love Boat connection..

I worked at the same company as her new guy and we have sailed with Ilene many times. She is a sweetheart and Carl is a really nice guy. They make a great couple and I am proud to have helped them meet a couple years ago!

Just met Illene and her beau on our 3/30/19 Grand Princess cruise...what a sweetheart!  She said that prior to embarkation, Inside Edition came on board and did a story on the two of them.  She didn't know when that air time would be, though.  Over 2,500 days at sea...wow!

It aired on Inside Edition Monday night 7:15 pm. It was a fantastic clip of Ilene and Carl.

Darn, we were on both the March 20 and March 30 cruises, and I'm sorry that we never met her.

Very inspiring story and I have heard about the legendary cruiser.  I particularly liked the last statement "cover the earth before it covers you"!

 

I am doing my best!
