I admit I liked the show and watched it every time I could. In it's heyday I was in the Navy so it was something really foreign to me since we sure didn't sail in style. My ship pulled in to Curacao in 1981 and the Island Princess was in port at the same time, and I think it was for overnight. I remember just standing there looking at it and wondering if I could ever afford it. It was the first cruise ship I'd ever seen. I guess I could, and did!
