ITV’s The Cruise at Sir Timothy’s Hill in St Kitts, the Caribbean

ITV documentary The Cruise will return to screens on Thursday 5 April, featuring the Caribbean.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ Vice President UK and Europe, said: “We have shown viewers the scenic surroundings of the Mediterranean and stunning landscapes of Alaska, so are now looking forward to seeing the sunny shores of the Caribbean.

“This series will give everyone the opportunity to see some of the amazing Caribbean destinations we visit.

“Sailing between the islands, including Antigua, Grenada and Princess Cruises’ very own private resort, Princess Cays in the Bahamas, is a fantastic way to enjoy the clear blue waters and white sandy beaches.

“With the recent launch of our Rhythm of the Caribbean programme, which offers a wealth of new onboard experiences and activities for guests visiting the islands, Princess Cruises really is the number one line to sail with for anyone who wants a taste of tropical paradise.”

The Cruise: Sailing the Caribbean will follow crew and guests as they travel on the 3,600-guest Royal Princess.

The documentary series, which has drawn up to four million viewers per episode, will once again be narrated by Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville.

Several new crew members will appear as well as familiar faces Captain Bob Oliver and Timothy Gallant from the shore excursions desk.

The mini-series is the fifth to air on ITV filmed on board a Princess Cruises ship and is the latest leg of an extended voyage for the programme, which kicked off in the Mediterranean in January and visited Alaska last month.

The latest series has once again been made by Wild Pictures, one of the UK’s leading factual documentary makers.

Wild Pictures has a reputation for creating films with high production values that give viewers privileged access to some of our best loved institutions and organisations.
