Hey guys/gals you do know that John is talking about "The Love Boat"


That's right Bloodgem, many people think this is only about "The Love Boat" - Pacific Princess doing the Mexican Riviera.  It lasted roughly 250 episodes from 1977 to 1984 on first showings.  A number of vessels were used Pacific Princess, Island Princess, Ocean Princess, Royal Viking Sky and at least one Sitmar ship ( Societa Italiana Transporti Marittimi) this line was acquired By P&O Australia at some point and gives an indication why Princess seems to have an underlying Italian Theme and the loyalty reciprocation. By the end of the last series they had sailed worldwide and attracted top stars from the early years people like Andy warhol, Tom Hanks etc.


There is one ship still sailing from the original cast Boudicca (ex Royal Viking Sky 1970-1991 ex Golden Princess 1993-1997) part of the current Fred Olsen Fleet.  In the background port scenes I have spotted famous ships like Canberra.  The muster drill on Princess has now incorporated the Love Boat Theme Tune into their Muster Drill instructions. There is a lot more to this series if you can see past the ridiculous way things are done and all the crew seem to be in white shorts from time to time.


Regards John
