Here we are on the Royal Viking Star and we are passing one of our sister ships the Royal Viking Sky in the Panama Canal. Around 1974/75, this did not happen very often.
I took the photo.

Hello Geoff,

When the R V Sky was used in the Love Boat series, I had already left the Royal Viking Star, and I did not see the tv episodes were they used the R V Sky, if they are repeated I will be looking to see if I know anybody. I think the R V Sky was used only for the Love Boat's European cruises. The passengers on oboard the Royal Viking Line ships where ever they were in the world would of been mainly Americans.

I believe that the original ships crew would of been running the ships during the filming but you would not see much of them.

Hi Geoff, when you traveled on her as Golden Princess, was there any reminders that she had once been the Royal Viking Sky.

This was the first time that sister ships (passenger Ships) had passed each other in the Panama Canal (Wikipedia).
Cheers Frank.
