Princess Cruises documentary to air on ITV in March
A six-part documentary set on a Princess Cruises ship will broadcast on ITV from March.
The Cruise is filmed on the 3,560-passenger Regal Princess as it sails through northern Europe and Russia.
ITV said viewers will gain a unique insight into the day-to-day roles of the crew and all aspects of life for the guests on board.
They will see how the crews works together to keep the operations of the ship running smoothly – including navigating the 114,000-tonne, 19-deck vessel; preparing over 20,000 meals a day; and servicing 1,800 cabins – and meet some repeat passengers.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said: “We are delighted to take centre stage for this major new documentary. It was fantastic to have every aspect of life on a modern cruise ship captured on film, from behind the scenes with the crew, on stage with the dancers to up on top deck with the ship’s guests.
“We’re so proud of our ship and crew and can’t wait for television viewers to see why.”
Paul Hamann, executive producer at Wild Pictures, the documentary maker behind the show, said: “It was a fascinating experience for our team to be on Regal Princess – a cruise ship of this size is like a small floating town, which enabled us to capture an incredibly rich variety of stories and characters from both crew and guests to give a unique insight into life at sea on one of the world’s biggest cruise ships.”
