Royal Princess Cruise Ship to feature in BBC programme ‘Sea Cities’
Princess Cruises’ 3,560-guest ship, Royal Princess, will appear in the ‘Sea Cities: Maritime Liverpool’ episode, which highlights what goes on behind the scenes of the 19-deck, 141,000-tonne cruise ship during a visit to the city.
The 60-minute episode will air on Thursday 18 February on BBC2 at 7pm and will be available on BBC iPlayer for those who want to see it on catch up.
Royal Princess was christened by HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge in 2013. At a length of 1,083 feet the ship is one of the largest ever to visit Liverpool. The Royal Princess docked at the city seven times last year as she sailed around the British Isles.
Liverpool has been recognised for making significant contributions in promoting cruise-tourism over the past 12 months. Last year, the city scooped the ‘Destination of the Year’ prize at the Seatrade Cruise Awards – beating the Caribbean and the Baltic.
Tony Roberts, vice president of Princess Cruises UK, said: “The port of Liverpool was a great location in which to film Royal Princess – it is a bustling area with a rich maritime history and the staff and local residents are always so welcoming.
“We’re really looking forward to seeing the hard work and dedication that both port staff and ship crew put in to ensure that our guests always come back happy from a visit to Liverpool.”
