Princess Cruises is celebrating their 50th anniversary this week with a throwback cruise that is recreating their very first itinerary to the iconic Mexican Riviera which took place on Princess Patricia.
How do you celebrate 50 years of cruising? Princess Cruises has reunited the cast of Love Boat to celebrate this special occasion. For 10 years, the following six stars brought the cruise industry into the living rooms of millions of people around the world. Much of the cruise industries success has been credited to the show that took place on Pacific Princess and Island Princess.
- Gavin MacLeod (Captain Stubing)
- Fred Grandy (Gopher, the chief purser)
- Ted Lange (Isaac, the bartender)
- Bernie Kopell (Doc, the ship’s doctor)
- Lauren Tewes (Julie, cruise director)
- Jill Whelan (Vicki, Captain Stubing’s daughter)
Jack Jones was also on hand for this throwback cruise to sing the Love Boat theme song. The festivities included an anniversary luncheon with a special tribute from Galvin MacLeod. This reunion cruise is taking place on Pacific Princess.
