The first season of "The Love Boat" is now out on DVD. The first set of DVDs has 12 episodes from 1977 on it. I also had the pleasure of meeting Gavin MacLeod (Capt. Stubbing) at the Cruise3Sixty conference at Ft. Lauderdale this past weekend. I wasn't able to get a picture with him, but I was able to snap a picture of him as I was walking away, here it is!

I remember the very first episode shown whch was the pilot episode. I think only one of thwe original characters stayed on, I think it was Doc.
Dick Van Patten was the Captain...Gabe Kaplan was a guest.
The Love Boat reruns are the reason I started to cruise. I would watch the show every night, and think, I want to do this too!
A bit of trivia, if you watch this show. On many episodes, when the passengers first walked onboard, and were greeted by the staff, invariably, many of the guest stars carried a Gucci train case. I used to make a game of it, to see if, the episode I was watching, would have the Gucci:)
It's too bad "our" problems couldn't be fixed in an hour, like the Love Boat:)
Trip, with her book & tea!
