Entitled The Cruise, it will reveal what life is like for crew and guests on board the 3,560-passenger Regal Princess as it sails through northern Europe and Russia.
ITV have announced the series and revealed that viewers will gain a unique insight into the day-to-day roles of the 1,400-strong crew, who hail from countries across the world. They will see how the team works together to keep the operations of the ship running smoothly including navigating the 114,000-tonne, 19-deck ship; preparing over 20,000 meals a day; and servicing 1,800 cabins.
As well as featuring key characters, from the ship’s crew, including the captain, the hotel manager and head chef, The Cruise gives viewers an insight into all aspects of life for the guests on board.
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 documentary makers Wild Pictures, 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.”
