One of Princess Cruises’ newest ships, the 3,560-guest Royal Princess, will feature in the BBC’s upcoming Sea Cities series during an episode called ‘Maritime Liverpool’.

Tony Roberts, vice president of Princess Cruises UK, said: “The port of Liverpool was a great location in which to film Royal Princess – it is a bustling area with a rich maritime history and the staff and local residents are always so welcoming.”

The 60-minute episode will air on Thursday 18 February on BBC2 at 7pm.

Following on from the success and popularity of the BBC’s previous Sea City series, a three-part documentary based in the port of Southampton, Sea Cities visits several ports across the UK to view their activities and events.

Christened by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge in 2013, and at a length of 1,083 feet, Royal Princess is one of the largest ever ships to visit Liverpool, having docked at the city seven times last year as it sailed around the British Isles.

Liverpool has been recognised for making significant contributions in promoting cruise-tourism over the past 12 months, and last year the city won the ‘Destination of the Year’ prize at the Seatrade Cruise Awards, beating the Caribbean and the Baltic.
