Dave, that's great!
It's a lot of fun isn't it, getting to watch the process. I'll have to see if I can find that on video.
Did they shoot the interior shots on the ship or were they done later on a sound stage? The reason I ask is there is an episode of Columbo ("Troubled Waters") that was shot on the original Sun Princess and I recognize all the exterior shots and most of the interiors as being authentic--but I can't imagine shooting in a cabin.
Sounds to me like Robert Urich caused the near-collision, not you.
