This dating show has got to be one of the worst on TV. It is highly predictable. The premise of the show is that they hook up a couple on a blind date & send them on a cruise. Whatever happened to just going for coffee? From there, the date usually starts off with a bang, and the potential couple seem to be in dating bliss. Usually by the 2nd day, the couple are at each other's throats. Where do they get these people from? Every show is the same, the faces may change, but the show doesn't. It would be nice to see a happy couple once in a while. I know the producers of this & other shows think that the viewing public prefer to see dating couples in turmoil, which in turn creates a more entertaining show. Though, fighting couples can be funny, it gets tired when that is all the show is. At least with shows like "Love Connection" in the '80s & new shows like "The 5th Wheel", they mix it up a little & are not so predictable. I thought "Studs" in the '90s was bad, but "Shipmates" takes the award for being one of the worst shows in syndication to date.
