A friend of mine worked as a ship's musician on both the Pacific Princess and Island Princess in the 1970s. He is quite upset by this.
I realize every old ship can't be saved but you'd think the iconic vessels would have an appeal to some investment group. I guess not when it comes to one of the two ships (a lot of the Love Boat was shot on Island Princess too) that really 'made' the cruise industry so popular.
