Must-See TV: "Love For Sail" Tonight on Lifetime

If you enjoyed seeing Norwegian Cruise Line's chief executive officer Kevin Sheehan on TV in "Undercover Boss" then you'll love the new Lifetime series "Love For Sail." In the launch episode tonight—and each week that the program airs—four women board a spectacular Norwegian Cruise Line ship and set sail to exotic locations surrounded by a group of single men who are ready to embark on what they hope to be the voyage of their lives.

With the help of series' Cruise Directors Bucko and Carmen, the women meet their suitors at an opening mixer where the matchmaking begins. Throughout the cruise, the singles participate in a variety of romantic dates on board, mixer parties, and adventurous excursions in beautiful ports of call such as Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Nassau, Bahamas. Some will make love connections, but for others, it's not always smooth sailing. Either way, there's a lot of 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.

"Love for Sail" features three of Norwegian's Freestyle Cruising ships. Norwegian Epic, the line's newest and most innovative ship to date, hosted the women in The Haven by Norwegian, the line's exclusive suite complex on three private decks at the top of the ship. You'll catch an intimate glimpse of Posh, The Haven's luxurious beach club and The Haven Courtyard. Mandara Spa, the largest spa at sea; Bliss Ultra Lounge, Epic's hot nightclub; and Spice H20, the ship's adult-only pool area, will also be featured as the women search for love at sea. The women sailed on Norwegian Epic's cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, calling on St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands; Phillipsburg, St. Maarten and Nassau, Bahamas from Miami, Florida.

Norwegian Pearl also has a starring role in "Love for Sail," with the women staying in The Haven by Norwegian in the largest suite at sea: the luxurious 5,000 square foot, three-bedroom Garden Villa, complete with a private living and dining room, sundeck and hot tub. Various aspects of the ship will be highlighted including the Great Outdoors bar; La Cucina, the ship's Italian restaurant; the pool deck; Maltings Beer & Whiskey Bar; Summer Palace and Bliss Ultra Lounge, among others. Love was in the air as Norwegian Pearl sailed to the Western Caribbean from Miami, Florida, visiting Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico.

Norwegian Star also makes a cameo appearance. Four women board the ship in Los Angeles, California on a Mexican Riviera cruise that stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Granted that "reality" takes on an entirely different meaning when applied to "reality TV," but this show could offer a peek at the singles life at sea. It's all edited for maximum drama, but it's fun entertainment nonetheless. Set your DVR or watch Tuesdays at 10pm/9c on Lifetime.

when I heard that Love for Sail came out of the same stables as Undercover Boss, I decided to watch --- was surprised at how much fun it is. The problem with many of the other reality type shows is that you have to commit to them for a full season. I like that Love for Sail is able to contain all the fun & drama to an one hour episode. The two ship officers, Bucko & Carmen are particularly charming.....
