MacLeod who played Captain Stubing on the classic cruise series guest stars as a cranky old guy on The Suite Life On Deck, March 27 on the Disney Channel.
Though MacLeod has been a spokesperson for Princess Cruises for the past 23 years, Suite Life was the first time hes filmed something for TV on a boat sound stage since his Love Boat days.
He says the fake boat was so realistic, his bosses over at Princess Cruises almost didnt let him take the job because it looked too much like a competing cruise liner.
MacLeod laughs, I showed them pictures and they couldnt believe it was a make-believe ship. Thats how good the set looked!
He eventually sold his case and landed the job, much to his grandkids content who happen to love Suite Life.
He explains, My grandkids are too young to see the other things Ive done, but this time, theyll all be watching!
