Dick Van Patton played the doctor (O'Neil) in the Love Boat TV Movie and was up for the role of the Captain in the series, but was already involved in "Eight is Enough" and wasn't available. So the role went to Gavin MacLeod. 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 loved "The Love Boat"!! It was so 70's and that's what was so appealing about it. OK the story lines were predictable but who cares. It was light hearted entertainment. I was a teenager when it was on and all I wanted to do when I grew up was go on the Pacific Princess!!! The only thing I found annoying was that everyone seemed to be in a suite on the ship!!! and when did the Captain ever have time to steer the ship ? he was always wandering around the deck!! or having dinner with all the guests. I have been on numerous cruises and have only ever seen the Captain once.!! I also loved how they used to bring back all the old Hollywood stars. Lots of these people were national treasures and we won't see the likes of them again. I would love for it to run again on TV, at least it's better than all the death and violence we always seem to get now.
