'The Love Boat' Cast Reunites for Rose Bowl Parade, Cruise B'day

"The Love Boat" cast reunited to celebrate Princess Cruises 50th anniversary by appearing on a float at the 126th Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena on Thursday.

The Pasadena Star News reported that the six cast members riding the float included stars Gavin MacLeod, who played Captain Stubing; Fred Grandy, who portrayed Chief Purser Gopher; Ted Lange, as the ship's bartender Isaac; Bernie Kopell, the ship's doctor; Lauren Tewes, who was Julie, the cruise director, and Jill Whelan, Captain Stubing's daughter Vicki.

"The show, which ran for a decade, revolves around the ship's captain, a handful of its crew and several passengers – having romantic and humorous adventures," noted KTTV in Los Angeles. "Fast-forward to 2014, the cast says there's still a camaraderie and 'mutual respect for each other' after having spent hours and hours together filming."

Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises, said the television show, which aired from 1977 to 1986, introduced millions to the cruising and thought having the original cast members on its first Rose Bowl float would be special, noted the Star News.

"For the last five decades of our guests sailing with us to amazing places, they've returned with inspiring memories that have lasted a lifetime, and we want to celebrate this on the very first day of 2015," said Swartz.

The appearance of "The Love Boat" crew received a positive response from numerous viewers who posted their opinions on Twitter.
