The popular ITV documentary, The Cruise, will return to our screens in early 2019 for its sixth series.
New series to be filmed in Australia, New Zealand and Asia
The next series will take place on-board the Majestic Princess – the newest ship to sail for the cruise line – as she cruises to Australia, New Zealand and Asia. The series will feature iconic destinations such as Sydney, Melbourne, Wellington, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Princess Cruises’ Vice President UK and Europe, Tony Roberts said:
“The Cruise continues to go from strength-to-strength, with viewing figures higher than ever, so we are delighted to have ITV back on board. The programme has unquestionably opened up the appeal of a cruise holiday to a whole new audience and we look forward to seeing Princess Cruises set sail on the small screen again from early 2019.
“Majestic Princess is the perfect setting for the next series as it’s our newest ship and includes a wealth of features and amenities such as fine dining, a luxury spa, an indoor garden and a 900-seat theatre. Meanwhile, Australia, New Zealand and Asia are on many bucket lists so we can’t wait to help transport viewers to these stunning parts of the world.”
The programme will continue to offer insight in to the world of cruising with Princess Cruises, including life on-board for both guests and the ships’ crew – featuring the return of familiar cruise members as well as several new faces.
Paul Hamann, Executive Producer at Wild Pictures said:
“The Cruise is now an ITV mainstay in the early year TV calendar and we’re delighted to be working with Princess on another new series. We’ll ensure we give viewers the opportunity to see just what it takes to run one of the world’s largest cruise ships and the chance to glimpse an exciting mix of exotic and familiar destinations in Asia and Australia.”
