It’s official, The True Love Boat has set sail, but it remains to be seen whether we will live an epic love story or a titanic disaster.
This season, our singles boarded the Regal Princess (which is over a hundred feet longer than the Mauretania and far more luxurious!) in hopes of finding love worthy of a Celine Dion power ballad. But, with so many sexy singles in one place, there are bound to be emotional icebergs just ahead. (Sorry, we’ll stop with the Titanic references now).
As the advertisements made a point of telling us, the concept of The True Love Boat it’s basically that it’s the island of love on a boat. That means they have couple ceremonies, cute dates, and of course, challenges designed to test our couples’ relationships.
Then there are the recoupling ceremonies, where couples can choose to stay together or explore a new romance, perhaps with a new bombshell that’s boarded the boat?
Along the way, they’ll sail to picture-perfect European locations across Spain, Greece, France, Italy, Turkey and Montenegro, where we’ll see sparks fly as our lovebirds head for dates. you very cute, like surfing, pottery lessons, romantic walks in the countryside and old-fashioned winemaking.
Based on the original scripted series from the 70s, the team of The True Love Boat are also there to accompany suitors in their quest for romance.
Hosted by Darren McMullen, The True Love Boat also features cruise director Hannah Ferrier – who Bravo chefs will recognize Under the Mediterranean Bridge – as well as entertainment chief Daniel Doody and captain Paolo Arrigo of Princess Cruises.
The twist — because there is always a twist! — is that only one couple will arrive at the last port.
Here are all the contestants who haven’t found their forever love.
