Cruise ship plays ‘The Love Boat’ theme in Vancouver

That must be a pretty big horn.

It may sound a bit like a Hans Zimmer soundtrack, but as the Majestic Princess pulled out of Vancouver’s port it played a tribute to arguably the most famous cruise ship-based show of all time (sorry fans of Breaker High).

As it just sneaks under the Lions Gate Bridge, the opening to ‘The Love Boat’ is piped over the ship’s horns. It’s playing the part of the melody of the opening lyrics in the iconic 70s and 80s show.

Love boat
Love, exciting and new
Come aboard. We’re expecting you.

What it lacks in showmanship and jazzy horn riffs it makes up for in sheer power, as TikTok user francis_batangpangasinan clearly captures the notes across the water on the seawall in Stanley Park.

The video is proving popular on the social media app, with more than 67,000 views already.
