Captain Steubing is on the Grand Princess in Galveston live, right this minute on tv..The Love Boat is how I first got interested in cruising...I tried to search online to see if the show is in reruns right now, and it looked like it's not... Is this show still on? Any other ardent fans of this hokey, but lovable show know? I used to watch and see if this Gucci carryon would be in the episode..invaribly it was....And so many of the cruisers dressed so formally while by the pool Too bad lifes problems could not be solved in an hour, as they were on the show! From Ceasar Romero, to Carol Channing, Betty White to Joanne Worley, the older Hollywood crowd had a second coming, and I loved it all Were you a fan, or a secret fan?

Sorry Trip, I was NOT a fan of the Love Boat. My friend was. That is the friend I went on my only previous cruise(for our 40th birthdays) and yes, we were on a "Love Boat" (actually the Sea Princess). It was so funny when we left FLL, they played the Love Boat theme on deck!! I thought it was quite amusing.

VALOR Jan/05-our first family cruise was great!
Love Boat came out just before my first cruise. I was so excited. I had to watch every episode. While we were on the first cruise there were some executives aboard from ABC-TV. Little did we know then they were negotiating the use of TSS Festivale for an episode of "Charlies Angels"
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Yes, I too was a fan. It was on again a few months ago on TVLand, but I notice that it's not in the line-up right now.
About a year ago we were on Adventure of the Seas and when we docked in St. Maarten we looked out our balcony and there was the old Pacific Princess docked next to us. She now belongs to Pullmantur tours. They just painted over "Princess" everywhere and left up "Pacific". But it was definitely her. You could tell by the shape of the pool on the aft of the ship and pool bar....no sign of Isaac though
Yep,,,I always watched it too, and even though "Big John" was in love with Julie, I knew that she was "the one for me". I've noticed that in Karaoke on the Princess ships they have the "Love Boat Theme", but I can never find it on the other lines. I have found it from time to time on TV Land.
I. too, was a regular viewer. The other gal--the niece ?-was married on the Caribbean Princess in port in Ft. Lauderdale in April for the Innaugaural sailing. Pictures were on the Webcam. I liked the photographer, Ted McGinley, who later went to Married, With Children. He was a guest on several shows back then.
But, wait, the New Love Boat series came out a few years ago, with Robert Ullrich as the Capt. He had a cool son, too, who called his father "Capt.Dad". I even found a t-shirt with that on it! I watched because of our cruises. Our first one was on the Sun Princess in 1998. The Love Boat Theme was played on that one, but more recently, "Time to Say Good-bye" by Andrea Boccelli was playing. The Captains are usually Italian, remember, and the ships are built in Italy.
I don't remember any song being played on the Caribbean Princess in Sept. but several of us were at the aft pool during sailaway. According to the Cruise Video-Reflections, it looked as if there was a conga line going.
I really enjoyed all the old Love Boat shows! Lynne
