A six-part documentary Entitled ‘ The Cruise ’, is set on board a Princess Cruises ship has been scheduled to broadcast weekly on ITV starting from Thursday March 3 at 8.30pm. It will reveal what life is like for crew and guests on board the 3,560-passenger Regal Princess as she sails through northern Europe and Russia.

The programme, which is voiced by Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville, has been made by Wild Pictures, one of the UK’s leading factual documentary makers. Wild Pictures has a reputation for creating access-led films with high production values that focus on major organisations and human interest stories.
