Princess Cruises documentary to air on British TV over summer

Princess Cruises documentary to air on British TV over summer
A four-part documentary set on board a Princess Cruises ship will broadcast weekly on ITV this summer. Entitled ‘The Cruise Ship’, it will show behind-the-scenes footage of crew and passengers on 3,600 passenger  Royal Princess,  launched last year.

The documentary will give an insight into life on board for the 1,600 crew members and how they work together to provide guests customer service. From preparing a glittering welcome on board party to cooking a barbeque for all guests on Princess Cruises’ private Bahamas island, the programme offers a bird’s eye view of the ship as it sails through the Caribbean.

The show was produced by UK production company Pulse Films.

Overseeing guest hospitality is Dirk Brand, hotel general manager, a German native with over 15 years’ cruise experience.

Paul Ludlow, Princess Cruises' managing director UK and Europe, said: 'We are thrilled the crew on Royal Princess will star in this major series. We’re positive the show will strike a chord with everyone who enjoys travelling with us and also open up the appeal of cruising to a whole new generation of holidaymakers.

'Even our most travelled guests will be amazed at just how much hard work goes into making sure our ships run smoothly.'
