You Can Take a “Love Boat”-Themed Cruise with Members of the Original Cast

If you’ve ever dreamed of sailing on “The Love Boat”, this is as close as you can get:  Princess Cruises will set sail in August with cast members from the original series.

You can spend seven days at sea with Doc (Bernie Kopell), Gopher (Fred Grandy), Isaac your bartender (Ted Lange), and Vicki Stubing (Jill Whelan). 

Gavin MacLeod, who played Captain Stubing, died in 2021.  Lauren Tewes, who played cruise director Julie McCoy, is still with us.  She’s 70 years old.  No word why she’s not doing the cruise.

The official dates are August 31st through September 7th, and the boat sets sail from New York City, with stops in New England and Canada.

Activities will include meet-and-greets and photo ops, plus vow renewal ceremonies officiated by the cast.  (???)
