Love for Sail on NCL
By John Pond. Is it an updated version of the 70′s hit The Love Boat? We will have to tune in to find out. Norwegian Cruise Line stars in a new dating reality series, “Love for Sail,” which premieres on Lifetime Tuesday, April 10, 2012, at 10 pm ET/PT. In each episode of “Love for Sail,” four adventurous women will board a spectacular Norwegian Cruise Line ship and set sail to exotic locations surrounded by a group of equally-eager single men ready to embark on what they hope to be the voyage of their lives. The show is being produced by Studio Lambert (“Undercover Boss”).
With the help of series’ Cruise Directors Bucko and Carmen, the women meet their suitors at an opening mixer where the matchmaking begins. Throughout the cruise, the singles participate in a variety of romantic dates on board, mixer parties and adventurous excursions in beautiful ports of call such as Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Nassau, Bahamas. Some will make love connections, but for others, it’s not always smooth sailing. Either way, viewers will enjoy the fun and drama behind the competitive courtship among the women and men, all of who are hoping to hook-in a mate on this once in a lifetime journey.
“Love for Sail” features three of Norwegian’s Freestyle Cruising ships. Norwegian Epic, the line’s newest and most innovative ship to date, hosted the women in The Haven by Norwegian, the line’s exclusive suite complex on three private decks at the top of the ship. Viewers will catch an intimate glimpse of Posh, The Haven’s luxurious beach club and The Haven Courtyard. Mandara Spa, the largest spa at sea; Bliss Ultra Lounge, Epic’s hot nightclub; and Spice H20, the ship’s adult-only pool area, will also be featured as the women search for love at sea. The women sailed on Norwegian Epic’s cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, calling on St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands; Phillipsburg, St. Maarten and Nassau, Bahamas from Miami, Florida.
Four women board the ship in Los Angeles, California on a Mexican Riviera cruise that stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. A trailer for the show will be airing on board Norwegian vessels in the next week. More information on the series “Love for Sail” and Norwegian Cruise Line will be available beginning April 2, 2012 at www.ncl.com/loveforsail. JP: The “Love Boat” turned many people onto cruising in the 70′s. I feel sure this new series will encourage many younger viewers to try cruising.
