If you are, then there's a contest for you.

Princess Cruises -- the Love Boat line to those in the know -- is launching an online contest on Valentine's Day to find "The Greatest Romantic.''

If you think you qualify, or know someone who does, send a video of three minutes or less telling why you or your candidate deserves the honor. Princess is accepting videos Feb. 14 to March 20. After that they'll post five finalists on the website for the public to vote on the ultimate romantic. The winner, announced April 15, will receive a seven-day cruise for two to Mexico or the Caribbean, including airfare.

"From a personal love story to an original poem or creative stunt, we're seeking compelling video entries expressing romance from many perspectives," Jan Swartz, senior vice president for Princess, says in a press release. "Be it in small or dramatic ways, we're looking for someone who can channel their inner romantic and espouse the meaning of romance for others, plus share how they make romance a part of their daily lives."

If you aren't tech-savvy enough to post a video -- or you're just plain shy -- don't despair. Visitors to the contest website during the voting period can sign up for a chance to win a cruises of their own and other prizes.
