Regal Princess To Be Named By Love Boat Cast

Date Posted: 13 Aug 2014
Category:

Princess Cruises have revealed new ship Regal Princess will be named by the original cast of popular US television show, The Love Boat.

At a prestigious ceremony in Fort Lauderdale, Florida the cast will officially name the ship and serve as her godparents. The six members to take on this role will be Gavin MacLeod (Captain Stubing), Fred Grandy (Gopher the chief purser), Ted Lange (Isaac the bartender), Bernie Kopell (Doc, the ship’s doctor), Lauren Tewes (Julie the cruise director) and Jill Whelan (Vicki the Captain’s daughter).

The Love Boat became extremely popular in the late 70’s and 80’s and was the longest running programme on US television. All episodes were filmed onboard Princess cruise ships and have contributed to the huge success of the company. From the end of this year the line will mark five decades of operation.

Paul Ludlow, UK and Europe Managing Director for Princess Cruises said  "It's fitting that Regal Princess will be named by The Love Boat cast as the event will perfectly mark the past and future of Princess Cruises. The show was key to our success and the cast are a great choice to help kick-start our anniversary celebrations".

Regal Princess will sail her maiden season in the Caribbean and be sister ship to Royal Princess.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
