Three new series of ITV show ‘The Cruise’ to be filmed this year

Published: Wed 26 Jul 2017

Three new series of ITV’s hit documentary ‘The Cruise’, which will be set on board two Princess Cruises ships, are being lined up for next year.

Wild Pictures will once again board 'The Cruise' and reveal what life at sea is like for both crew and guests on board some of the ocean’s largest cruise liners. The new series follows the success of the previous two series, filmed respectively on Regal Princess in the Baltics and Royal Princess in the Mediterranean, which were a ratings success.

The new series of The Cruise will include 6 x30minute episodes in the Mediterranean, returning to the 3,560-guest Royal Princess as she cruises from Greece to Spain and everywhere in between this summer. Two special 3 x 30 minute outings to Alaska and the Caribbean will take viewers further then ever before to breath-taking and exotic locations, which present new challenges for staff.

The series are commissioned for ITV by Satmohan Panesar, Commissioning Editor and Sue Murphy Head of Factual Entertainment.

Paul Hamann, executive producer at Wild Pictures, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Princess Cruises again on this successful returning series. Viewers are really fascinated by the world of cruising, the workings of such a large operation and the exciting destinations this series gives them a passport to see.”
