The Love Boat's last run

Love, exciting and new. Come aboard, we're expecting you! Those famous words were the intro to one of the maritime and cruise sector's most successful program- The Love Boat. The vessel that was The Love Boat, the Pacific Princess, has been sold to a Turkish demolition company for just over $3 million, according to a report in USA Today.

What does this have to do with Amver? Well, the Pacific Princess enrolled in the Amver system on January 1, 1971 and participated for almost 10 years. The Pacific Princess sent over 550 Amver reports during its time at sea.

Cruise ships that participate in Amver routinely save people.  Here's wishing the fictional crew fair winds and following seas! We're going to miss you Captain Stubing!
