Set to air for the first time in the U.K. this Thursday, March 3 at 8:30 p.m. GMT, the show will focus on the life of passengers and crew as they sail through Russia and Northern Europe onboard the 3,560-passenger Regal Princess.
It is the second year time the line has featured in a TV documentary – sister ship Royal Princess was featured in 2014 reality show “The Cruise Ship”.
Going behind the scenes, the programme will also reveal the day-to-day life of the 1,400 crew members who run operations onboard the 114,000-tonne ship, from the servicing of 1,800 cabins to the logistics of preparing 20,000 meals a day.
The U.K. and Europe Vice President of Princess Cruises, Tony Roberts, said: “We are thrilled to have taken part in this ITV documentary and can’t wait for viewers to see Regal Princess, and her fantastic crew, in action.”
Created by UK documentary makers, Wild Pictures, the programme will be voiced by actor Hugh Bonneville, best known for his portrayal of Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham in hit ITV show, Downton Abbey.
