Once in a while I do watch an episode. The world has changed a lot since then and cruising was never quite like the way it was portrayed on ( The Love Boat ).

My mother loved the show and I watched a number of episodes with her. Even then I thought it was corny and that show kept me from cruising for a LONG time. I thought it would be a boring experience with a lot of "mature" people.

It took about 25 years to find out that it wasn't boring and while there are a number of mature folks they are a lot of fun.

Take care,
Mike

I used to watch double reruns late night, in the 80's and that got me cruising in 1990...not sure it's on in my area at all...what channel?


I used to get a kick out of the same Gucci carryone, so many of the guest stars carried on board..it became a game with me to see how many times in a week of reruns I would see the Gucci!

So many of the older faded celebs, who once had glorious film careers, appeared on the show..All the problems were fixed in an hour..how lucky, huh? I remember the first episode, with the different cast too.

Cheesy, yes, but so much fun. We have 2 volumes of Season 1 And I just ordered 2 volumes of Season 2 for James' birthday. I love playing spot the celebrity actor/actress!

There is a certain amount of innocence that comes over me when I watch these old reruns...in many ways the show was ahead of it's time..it feature a woman (Jule) as assistant CD and a minority (Issac) as the head bartendar..the allure of the seas enabled guests who boarded with relationship issues to work towards a reunion within 7 days...if you notice, no one ever "signed" for any service by showing their S&S card...don't remember any shows with rough seas due to hurricanes...kids were always well behaved...the guest services desk was always able to resolve issues...never saw a final bill be placed under your door the final night..no. chair hoarders on sea days..no lines

The weekly guest stars were the "reality tv stars" of their time

I know there were 1-2 attempts to revive the format but they failed miserably...in light of the popularity of cruising these days, I am surprise there has not been another attempt
