“What an unexpected thrill for our cast to be honored with Princess Cruises on Hollywood Boulevard,” said Gavin MacLeod, aka Captain Merrill Stubing.
MacLeod is also a 30-year brand ambassador for Princess Cruises. “‘The Love Boat’ offered us many opportunities to see the world, create lifelong friendships and of course introduce the joys of cruising. People still approach me and say that the show gave them something to dream about – falling in love, finding happiness all while sparking the desire to travel. Now more than 40 years later, cruising is a vacation option for everyone and the growth of the industry just proves that dreams really do come true,” added MacLeod.
