I remember watching Love Boat! If I could afford it I would like to cruise to Australia to see where my daughter and her family live. They are maybe reinstating ships from England to Australia so maybe I will win the lottery ? ?

I do remember the Love Boat. My Gram watched it and Fantasy Island religiously. LOL I took my first cruise last fall and had a fabulous time. It’s a good thing that sailing has improved. I wouldn’t be so excited to travel with Dr. George on that EIC ship, as much as I adore him. LOL

Funny that as sailing time decreased, the comforts increased!


A cow on board to supply milk, can’t imagine. So funny. Yes, I do remember Love Boat. Still love the theme song.

Very interesting. We are going on an Alaskan cruise this summer as a family. This is the first time that we have ever taken a large vacation like this so we are all looking forward to it.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
