Regal Princess on maiden voyage
The 3,560- guest Regal Princess has begun her maiden season of Caribbean cruises out of Fort Lauderdale. Princess Cruises, the cruise line made famous as the backdrop of the iconic Love Boat television series, christened its newest ship Regal Princess with a tribute to the show as all six of the original cast members served as godparents. The festivities, which also launched the line’s 50th anniversary, celebrated the role the show played in Princess Cruises’ five- decades- long history. Frequent show guest- star Florence Henderson served as the Master of Ceremonies.
