Having aired earlier this year, the series was filmed on the 3,560-guest ship as it sailed through Scandinavia and the Baltics. It attracted an average audience of 3.5 million viewers and gave an insight into the day-to-day roles of the ship’s 1,400 crew.

I hope everyone who tuned in to watch our crew in action will spare a few minutes to vote for them as they are as fantastic off screen as they are on it.”
