Princess Cruises Reunites The Love Boat Cast for Fall Cruise

Fans of The Love Boat will have an opportunity to set sail aboard Princess Cruises alongside original cast members. The hit show, which aired for 10 seasons, showcased the romance of the sea and helped make cruises mainstream. Aboard the Enchanted Princess, fans will sail roundtrip from New York to Canada & New England from August 31-September 7, 2024. The cruise will visit Newport, Rhode Island; Boston, Massachusetts; Rockland, Maine; Saint John, Canada (for Bay of Fundy); and Halifax, Canada. 

“We had such a blast connecting with fans on our theme cruise in 2022, so bringing it back in 2024 feels like it was meant to be, especially with the addition of some surprise guests,” said Jill Whelan, who played Vicki Stubing on Love Boat. “Sailing with our fans brings us so much joy and this cruise will undoubtedly be a special reunion, taking us back to where it all began – on a Princess Cruise.”

In addition to Whelan, who currently serves as the Princess Cruises Celebrations Ambassador, cast members Bernie Kopell (Doc), Fred Grandy (Gopher) and Ted Lange (Isaac) will also be aboard the cruise. Ezra Freeman, the bartender from The Real Love Boat, will also join the cast for this unique experience. Additional surprise guests will be announced at a later date. 

Guests can look forward to numerous themed activities, including:

  • Sailaway party introducing the cast

  • Cocktail demonstration hosted by Ezra Freeman and Ted Lange
  • Symbolic renewal of vows ceremony officiated by the cast with commemorative certificate

  • Airings of The Love Boat episodes on Movies Under the Stars and in staterooms
  • The Love Boat trivia led by the Cruise Director
