The documentaries will once again reveal what life is like for both crew and guests as they sail onboard a Princess ship.

Two previous two series of The Cruise were filmed on Regal Princess in the Baltic and Royal Princess in the Mediterranean, and did well in the ratings. .

The new series will offer viewers the chance to see life on board as crew and passengers take in even more exotic destinations. It will return to the 3,560-guest Royal Princess as she cruises the Mediterranean this summer, as well as the 2,600-guest Star Princess as she sails across Alaska. Filming will then return to Royal Princess in November as the ship enters her Caribbean season.

ITV have announced the new series will again be made by Wild Pictures, one of the UK’s leading factual documentary makers.  It will include six half-hour episodes in the Mediterranean and two special 30-minute outings to Alaska and the Caribbean.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said: “We are looking forward to what the new series will bring as viewers will have the chance to see destinations from the ports of the Mediterranean to the breathtaking glaciers of Alaska and the stunning beaches of the Caribbean.”

Paul Hamann, executive producer at Wild Pictures, said: “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.”
