I guess I'm "out of the loop"! I've never heard of Shipmates. When and where is it on?
I actually LIKE The Love Boat. A whole hour on a ship without using your brain too much!
Even though I don't know the show you are talking about, I also think Dave The Wave would be a great host for a cruising show! We would certainly get a balanced opinion from Dave. Maybe all the CM's could get jobs as different cruiseline's "secret shoppers"! Then we could join Dave on TV and give our honest opinions about our cruises.
So many of us would be "pro" cruising (with a VERY few negatives, just for balance), it would be a great advertising gimmick for the cruiselines!
