LOS ANGELES, CA (March 22, 2012) – Ahoy! Lifetime sets its sights on romance on the high-seas by taking match-making to new territories with the launch of the docu-dating series Love for Sail. Beginning Tuesday, April 10, at 10:00 pm ET/PT, the hour-long program will follow single women as they leave their day-to-day lives behind looking for love aboard a tropical cruise liner.
In each episode of Love for Sail, four adventurous women will board a Norwegian Cruise Line ship and set sail to exotic locations surrounded by a group of equally-eager single men ready to embark on what they hope to be the voyage of their lives. With the help of the series’ Cruise Directors, Bucko and Carmen, the women meet their suitors at an opening mixer...and then the intense match-making begins. Throughout the cruise the singles participate in a wide variety of romantic dates, mixer parties and adventuresome excursions in many ports of call, giving them the time and space to learn more about each other. Some will make love connections. But for others, it’s not smooth sailing. Either way, viewers will enjoy the fun and drama behind the competitive courtship among the women and men, all of who are hoping to hook-in a mate on this once in a lifetime journey.
“A generation of viewers grew up watching the scripted series, The Love Boat, and, inspired by that program, Love for Sail captures the fun and adventure of what it’s really like to find romance on the high seas,” said Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, Lifetime Networks.
