Cruise with a Celebrity
February 22, 2002
Otherwise, most celebrities hired by cruise lines to entertain passengers are clearly geared for the more traditional -- we mean more senior -- passenger demographic. QE2 itself, beyond the Cleese comedy voyage, trumpets such star power as John Davidson (remember “Hollywood Squares”?), Petula Clark and Herman’s Hermits. On Star Princess transpacific inaugural, guests can meet television’s Robert Conrad, whose latest starring gig was a guest spot on “Just Shoot Me.” On a 10-day Panama Canal trip, Royal Princess has loaded up with stars of yore: fitness entrepreneurs Jack and Elaine LaLanne, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and one-time MGM star June Allyson.
