Penny, you have pretty much described the original "Love Boats;" no balconies in any cabin; no buffet--just an occasional "Midnight" buffet in the dining room and luuch buffet on deck; they did have two small pools but only one dining room--no alternative restaurants--not even burgers or pizza by the pool; tiny casino with maybe 30 slots-that's all; one small botique; tiny gym with a set of weights and a couple of slant boards; movies were shown on 16mm film, which always kept breaking; Princess Patter was printed on an actual printing press; photo lab had darkrooms; on and on. But I have never enjoyed cruising more!

But what's interesting is that the basic layout and design is pretty much the same today as it was then.
