Even though he was an actor well before, most of us probably remember Gavin MacLeod first from his long-running role as Murray Slaughter on the Mary Tyler Moore Show. From there he went on to the iconic role of Captain Merrill Stubing on the Love Boat. But only after that role ended could he step into his longest running one, that of Global Ambassador for Princess Cruises (The Love Boat).
It's hard to believe, but Gavin is celebrating his 30th anniversary in that position. To mark the occasion, the City of Santa Clarita (where Princess' headquarters is located) has proclaimed next Wednesday, July 6, as “Gavin MacLeod Princess Cruises Ambassador Day.”
The complete story appeared in the June 30 edition of Cruise News Daily.
