This film has very similar parallels to the much earlier British film "Carry on Cruising". Set on a Cruise Ship, with Product Placement from a real Cruise Line, P&O, which in a further coincidence later merged with Princess Cruises. Shot on a Soundstage replica of the Ship, with stock shot inserts of the location, with stories following the main crew, and some love based sub plots. It's possible that "Carry on Cruising" partly inspired elements of developing "The Love Boat", from the book it was originally based upon. "Carry on Cruising" does play like an early prototype of "The Love Boat". See more »
While it made for interesting stories during the run of the show, romantic and sexual liaisons between passengers and crew members were (and still are) forbidden aboard cruise ships for a host of reasons. See more »
In the opening credits, the episode's guest stars are listed first in alphabetical order; then the show's regulars, who are referred to as "your Love Boat crew" (e.g. "Gavin MacLeod as your Captain", etc.). See more »
I know this is my third review for this show, but I have one more thing to add. The regular characters are awesome! Captain Stubing,Vicki, Isaac, Gopher, Julie, Doc,etc. They truly were a family, and their talent added a great deal to the show.They are the reason this show was a success, and the revival flopped. The revival's cast had no talent! This comedy/drama is one of my three favorite shows of all time. (along with the corny, but always lovable "The Brady Bunch", and the beautiful "Once And Again".)
