Can you believe it? Gavin MacLeod is already 88, but this doesn't mean that he´s lost his charm! Even after the series' end, he was still able to star in shows like The Suite Life on Deck in 2009. On top of that, MacLeod has also worked as an author with his last book being his own memoir back in 2013. Hilariously enough, Gavin was able to marry his wife, Patti, twice during his lifetime!

Even at his age, he is still active in the industry and is still seen attending public events now and again. After his role in The Love Boat, he appeared in shows like Diagnosis Murder and Monk and was last seen in the tv show Gamer´s Guide to Pretty Much Everything back in 2016.

The former barkeeper is now 71 years old and still knocks us off our feet with his charming smile! Even after The Love Boat, the actor continued to work in Hollywood starring, directing and writing for shows like Dharma & Greg. Let´s move on to our next cast member...
Fred Grandy became internationally known for playing the role of "Burl `Gopher´ Smith". But what does he look like today? Check out the next slide for more!
Our good-looking paymaster is now 70 and still going strong! After his role in The Love Boat, Grandy decided to go into politics becoming a political radio commentator shortly after the series´ end. Do you guys want to know what happened to Laruen Tewes?
Our lovely manager is now 65! Sadly, she was never able to get her big breakthrough, starring in various little guest roles including the Broadway version of The Fugitive back in 2001. Today she has two jobs working at a farmer's market and a catering company.
Another important character on the show was "Captain Merill Stubing´s" daughter "Vicki Stubing". She started out with the occasional guest role on the show, but due to her popularity, she became a regular on the show in 1979! But the real question is: what is she doing today?
Our mischievous little girl back then is now a real stunner today! Like many other stars on the show, she also was never able to get her big breakthrough. Her fans were still happy to see her alongside Brian Phelps in his comedy podcast The Brian & Jill Show. Did we forget anybody? Oh, of course...
After Lauren Tewes ("Julie McCoy") left the show in 1984, her replacement was none other than Patricia Klous, who took over the role of cruise ship manager. What do you think she looks like today?
After the series ended in 1988, Patricia disapeared from the public eye for a while before eventually ending her career in 2002. But hey, this doesn´t change the fact that she was a real stunner back in the day!
An additional character that was added to the show back in 1984 was "Ashley `Ace´ Convington Evans". The heartthrob behind the role was none other than Ted McGinley! Let´s find out what he´s been up to...
Wow! He´s definitely changed a lot over the past 30 years! McGinley was able to land a role in the smash hit Married... With Children from 1989 until 1997. But don´t get us wrong, he is still sought after even today! McGinley made a name for himself as a voice actor using his voice for productions like Transformers: Robots in Disguise in 2015.
Even though the series ended over 30 years ago, the fans of the The Love Boat are always happy to see the stars reunite at a Gala or somewhere in Los Angeles...
