Beyond the romance, The Real Love Boat is also an ensemble comedy with an incredibly charming cast of characters anchored by O'Connell, Romijn, and Noyes. Captain Glenn is the quintessential leader who always has the situation under control no matter how difficult it may seem. Romijn’s character Sydney Mason is sharp as a tack, and often the mediator between guests and the crew. Noyes is the vivacious Jasmine, with her bubbly energy and love of all things entertaining.
