There is life after "Love Boat" for actor Gavin MacLeod -- and plenty of it.For nine years beginning in 1977, Mr. MacLeod starred in the popular ABC series as the irrepressible Capt. Merrill Stubing, skippering the fictional cruise ship through television's champagne seas on prime-time Saturday night.Although the show was discontinued in 1986, the 60-year-old native of Mount Kisco, N.Y., has not given up ocean cruises. He now does commercials and other promotional work for the Princess ships, a job that allows him to go on a cruise at least once a year without the pressure of acting in a TV series.

Ted Lange may be known by the masses as Isaac the bartender from the television show The Love Boat -- and he acknowledges that this is often his calling card -- but he no longer calls himself an actor. Today, after directing and writing for television and more than 20 plays, Lange considers himself an artist. "Love Boat has opened the doors and made it possible," Lange said. "Once the door is opened, it comes down to my talent. If I fall down from that, I have a problem." Today, it is rare to find Lange without a screenplay at his fingertips; he has been writing periodically since he moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s.

Where's Charo when you really, really, really need her?I used to think Charo, in her recurring role of singer-guitarist April Lopez, epitomized the level of vacuousness to which "The Love Boat" took ABC in the early '80s -- that halcyon era of "Joanie Loves Chachi."But I was wrong -- oh, so horribly wrong. I have now seen "Love Boat: The Next Wave," UPN's remake of the "Love Boat" series, and I would kill for the privilege of watching the great Charo perform on board the Pacific Princess for even a few minutes.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - They call this the Bold New City of the South, which is a nice way of saying that all the good nicknames were already taken, but you've got to give the people of Jacksonville credit for ingenuity. They were able to convince the NFL that they could handle the huge influx of Super Bowl tourists by bringing in cruise ships to provide thousands of overflow hotel rooms. The limbo contests are just a bonus. It's a brilliant plan for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it makes me start humming the Love Boat theme every time I look out at the St. Johns River from my cushy, land-based hotel room.

What kills a TV show faster than a bad review? According to the cult Web site jumpthe shark.com, it's adding Ted McGinley to the cast. This uber-handsome actor serves as "our patron saint" at the online gathering place devoted to defining that moment "when you know your favorite program has reached its peak" and "from now on, it's all downhill." Shark-sighters note McGinley joins shows just as they're deteriorating -- Happy Days, The Love Boat, Married ... With Children and, most recently, Nathan Lane's June CBS debacle Charlie Lawrence.

Preston is a native of Essex and a graduate of Towson State University, where he played football. Dan, Puyallup, Wash.: Mike, will you now give Kyle Boller a little love?

This was his best game.

EVEN BEFORE Celebrity Cruises starts Caribbean sailings from Baltimore in a few weeks, two heavy hitters are fighting for an opportunity to build a replacement for Dundalk's scruffy cruise terminal. Edwin F. Hale Sr., the banking and sports entrepreneur, wants cruise ships as part of his $100 million Canton Crossing office and retail complex, which broke ground last week. John Paterakis Sr., who owns one of the nation's biggest bakery empires, wants cruise ships to moor near Fells Point, where he is planning to redevelop the site of a former AlliedSignal chromium plant.

Throw together 80 young, fit, attractive Scandinavians on a coed world-traveling ship for five months and tell them they are forbidden from romance. What happens? Exactly what you think. Don't ask, don't tell. Restraint is a lot to ask of a crew of 17- to 23-year-olds that is working, showering, dressing and sleeping side-by-side. But the rules are set on the Danmark, which is in town as part of the OpSail 2000 tall ship tour. It is one of the few mixed-gender boats taking part in OpSail 2000.

Half an hour into the session, everybody begins to loosen up a little. A couple of the guys lean back in their chairs and light cigarettes. The women stop fiddling with their pens.Sharon Hall stands in front of the blackboard, smeared with overlapping diagrams and streaks of chalk, and calls out questions."OK, does anybody know what PCP is called on the street?""Angel dust," one woman volunteers.Hall nods her head and looks at the others. "C'mon, can anybody think of another nickname? How 'bout when you spray marijuana with PCP?"
