Who doesn’t remember the theme song for the television show The Love Boat ? I’m sure I could still recite every word today so I was very excited to be travelling on the Sun Princess in 1988. Even though most people associate the Pacific Princess as the true Love Boat, the 1977 pilot show was filmed aboard the Sun Princess in Mexico.
I loved watching the cliff divers in Acapulco and visiting Cabo San Lucas when it was just a sleepy little Mexican town. I didn’t realize at the time that I was on one of the last voyages for the Sun Princess as it was sold to Premier Cruises right after we finished our sailing. Look at the people gathered around the decks as they are set to release the balloons for our sailing send off.
