Many of us would agree that TV was just better in the 70s and 80s. We didn’t have as many distractions as we do today, which means we could easily get hooked on a TV series that spanned over years, or even decades.

“The Love Boat” is a favorite for many of us – but if you haven’t watched an episode for several decades, how much can you remember about it?


This fun drama, set on luxury passenger cruise ship “MS Pacific Princess”, aired between 1977 and 1986.

The show has a rating of 6.1 out of 10 on IMDb – slightly harsh, considering it was only intended as a bit of light humor!

There was plenty of romance and comedy in each episode, and as the opening music played out, you always knew you’d be in for an enjoyable evening.


We can all remember that “The Love Boat” had a ridiculously catchy theme tune.

At one point, many regular viewers will have known virtually all the words to the song, sung by Jack Jones in seasons 1 to 8, and by Dionne Warwick in season 9.

But how sharp is your memory when it comes to music? Can you still remember the lyrics to a tune you might not have heard since the late 80s?
