Such a shame that the original Love Boat is going to be scrapped, just like the SS Norway. And the SS Norway was the first mega cruise ship. I think that we can all agree that if NCL had replaced the ship's steam boilers for diesel engines instead of those upperdecks in 1990, as well as a complete replacement of the ship's plumbing and electrical systems, the SS Norway would still be sailing to this day because the engine disaster would not have happened.
