Love Boat legend meets namesake

Home/Cruise people/Love Boat legend meets namesake

gavingavin.jpgWhen Inverness-born Gavin MacLeod joined Princess Cruises as a Third Officer two years ago, he didn’t even realise that his namesake was a legend of the Love Boats. The actor Gavin MacLeod made the role of Captain Stubing his own during nine years of the popular TV soap-at-sea from 1977 to 1986 and is now an ambassador travelling the world for the company whose real-life ships were used as a filming location. The two met for the first time last week on board Island Princess, and shared lunch in the ship’s Sabatini’s Italian restaurant. There they autographed a collection of navigational charts whuch will be auctioned off for charity. Which Gavin is which? I’ll leave you to decide.
