Navigate your way through the sea of love with tips from one of the world’s most famous Captains, the Love Boat’s Captain Merrill Stubbing.

The Captain, aka actor Gavin MacLeod, released a video late last week offering advice on the topic of love from someone who has “been there – and done that”.

The video coincides with his visit to Australia on 7-8 February to oversee a vow renewal ceremony on Princess Cruises’ Love Boat, Sun Princess. Following the ceremony he will head to New Zealand to preside over another ceremony in Auckland on 12 February.

The tips vary from a night out just you and your other half to cooking when your partner least expects a meal.
