The Love Boat’s Isaac Washington arrives in Australia
Ted Lange, best known for his role of Isaac Washington, the cocktail maker and confidant on the iconic TV series ‘The Love Boat’, has arrived in Sydney today to celebrate the return of Princess
Cruises’ Pacific Princess to Australia.
The December 2020 arrival of the 670-guest Pacific Princess in Sydney will coincide with the 45th anniversary of Princess Cruises’ first roundtrip cruise from Australia, a voyage that was made on the original Pacific Princess which was the ship that starred in ‘The Love Boat’.
“I’m so excited to return to Australia. I first fell in love with the country while I was filming an episode of ‘The Love Boat’ in Sydney back in the 1980s,” Ted Lange said.
“Two of my Love Boat co-stars, Gavin MacLeod who played Captain Stubing and Lauren Tewes who played Julie McCoy have both also travelled down-under since the show – Australia holds a special place in our hearts. I can’t wait to show Aussie’s how to make my signature cocktail, The Isaac, when I get there!”On sale on Friday July 12, Pacific Princess’ program will include an epic 90-day roundtrip Sydney voyage around South America, a 13-night cruise visiting ports on New Zealand’s North and South Islands and a special 21-night sailing to remote locations in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.
The addition of Pacific Princess means Australians will have an unprecedented choice of Princess ships sailing from their doorstep over the 2020-21 summer, from the cruise line’s smallest ship, the 30,277-tonne Pacific Princess, to two of its largest ships – the 143,700-tonne Majestic Princess and 142,200-tonne Regal Princess. With Sapphire Princess, Sun Princess and Sea Princess also sailing in local waters, Princess Cruises will further cement its position as Australia’s biggest cruise line, offering almost 25 per cent more beds across the 2020-21 summer than any other cruise line in Australia.
