For Princess Cruises 2015 will be a year-long party to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Love Boats. Themed menus and décor features, cocktails and entertainment on the line’s 18 ships will include:
Love Boat Disco Party – To honor the iconic role The Love Boat played in the line’s history, each cruise will include a 70’s theme night with a few surprises. Movies Under the Stars will showcase montages from the show, a Love Boat sing-a-long and show trivia, 70’s music videos and even a live kiss cam. There’s also a production number, a celebration of weddings and anniversaries of guests onboard and plenty of dancing with a party band.
Festive Food – One night on every cruise, the main dining rooms will present a special souvenir menu, featuring commemorative dishes from the past five decades, including Duck Terrine with Apricot Preserves and Filet of Turbot with Truffle Chive Sauce. Princess chefs will also introduce a variety of new anniversary pizzas such as Spicy Tomato & Shrimp, Potato, Bacon & Brie and Thai.
