The Love Boat

Updated on March 24, 2015

My Oasis Caribbean Cruise

The Royal Caribbean "Oasis Of The Seas" holds more people than the small town I grew up in. With more than sixteen decks there is room for more than six thousand (6,000) passengers and thirty-eight hundred (3,800) crew. It is truly the largest luxury class ship ever built.

The "Oasis" is one place in this world where one can share a meal, a good drink, intelligent talk, and sit in peace with people from all over the world. Literally. The Oasis' crew members alone represent more than forty different countries, preventing any language barrier from getting in the way of an enjoyable stay.

What's not to love? Join me. I just got back from my cruise with a story or two to share. This was our first vacation in more than ten years, and first sea cruise, ever. I was leaving forty degrees, and was welcomed to eighty degrees,. I left a cold wind for a cool breeze. I left the dark and gray for sunny skies and blue seas.

"The Love Boat"

About The Popular Television Show

For almost ten years The Love Boat was ABC's Saturday night anchor for television entertainment. This program entailed of multiple stories about guests who went on a vacation and found themselves in situations that ranged from comedy to drama to sometimes both.

Throughout the years, each week the program not only delivered interesting short stories about its passengers vacationing on The Princess, but the stories were also based around its stars and mainstream cast.

If my first ocean cruise experience has convinced me of anything it is this: The Royal Caribbean "Oasis" is truly an oasis on the sea, as well as today's real "Love Boat" of the sea.

      Love Boat is one of our favorites too. Me and my hubby get some nostalgia while our teenager get to enjoy it for the first time.

      A show is as good as its theme song. This one had a good song!
