What a horrible show
6 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

Yes, that's right. Horrible. And so predictable, too! It seemed like a good idea at first. Stars you love, stars you hate, all sailing on a boat with Gavin McLeod as Captain, fresh off the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Some interesting characters around Stubing, like the bartender and the cute cruise director. But after a few episodes every episode became the same old formula.

Stars would board ship, everyone greets each other, music comes in, confetti flows, ship honks horn, ship sails, Charo can't find her room, picture of ship goes sailing by, stories begin to unravel, Toni Tennille wheels by in a wheelchair, picture of ship going in the opposite direction pops up, Barry Nelson with a beaver on his head walks by smiling, another picture of the ship sailing shows us they're on a "real" ship, Pearl Bailey laughs heartily, stories get wrapped up, picture of ship sailing into port comes on, passengers disembark, music plays, tune in the following week and it's the same thing only with Don Adams, Diana Canova, and Charlie Callas! Horrible! And it lasted ten seasons? Eye yi yi.

The show has never been popular in syndication. A true testament to how much people want to see this forgotten series. It goes to show you that anything can get on television.
