Storyline

A husband and wife (Fernando Lamas and Michele Lee), as a famous Hollywood couple, arrive with paparazzi. She is adorned in a famous gigantic diamond which, of course, entices dim-witted bumbling crooks (Harold Gould, Karen Valentine, Larry Storch and John Schuck), in a delightful caper reminiscent of old Hollywood. A husband (Dan Rowan) is chagrined into bringing his wife (Juliet Mills) on the cruise when she finds the tickets for his mistress (Adrienne Barbeau) and himself, with some unexpected surprises. Two former attendees of a blind school (Desi Arnaz Jr. and Stephanie Zimbalist) are reunited. A masquerade night moves the plots right along. Written by lemoviecritic

Awesome "caper"
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great "Love Boat" episode, because the show was still in its first-season, experimental "anything goes" period, and not so formulaic. Michelle Lee and Fernando Lamas are celebrities who board with an exquisitely large diamond. Enter the bumbling crime gang of Harold Gould (the boss), Karen Valentine (the dame), Larry Storch (the hot head) and John Schuck (the dim-witted muscle). They're out to switch the real diamond with a fake made of cut glass. Hi-jinx ensue as our gang tries and fails ... several times ... to swipe the diamond.

Later, the gang witnesses Michelle Lee throwing the diamond overboard in a grand gesture to Fernando Lamas to show him that he means more to her than "a mere object." The frustrated crime gang is foiled, much to their chagrin.

In a twist to the end of the story, as the celebrity couple disembarks at the end of the cruise, Lamas says to Lee something to the effect of, "I can't believe you really threw the diamond overboard." Lee replies something to the effect of, "The real diamond is at home in the safe. I threw the fake overboard!"

As with other first season episodes, this episode features shipboard sequences filmed on the Pacific Princess, which add to the feeling that the episode is more of an "event" with guest stars walking onto what is obviously an actual cruise ship, and not just a studio recreation on a sound stage.
