ITV’s ‘The Cruise’ will return to TV screens next month

In this latest series, viewers will be introduced to a number of new faces including Captain Dino Sagani, a fourth-generation captain who has worked for Princess Cruises for 25 years. He has served as captain on several Princess ships since first being appointed in 2007. Majestic Princess holds great personal importance to him as it was built in Monfalcone, Italy just a few miles north from his hometown of Trieste.

ITV say some familiar faces will also take centre stage including Newcastle-born Hotel Services Engineer, Scott Grayson. As well as being filmed helping maintain the 143,000-tonne ship, Scott is seen offering a glimpse into his preparations for heading home to begin a whole new adventure of his own – as a father to a new born baby girl. 

Providing the voice over for the series is actor Anthony Head, who is internationally known for playing Rupert Giles in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and for his role as Geoffrey Howe in Oscar winning film, The Iron Lady.

The Cruise is made by Wild Pictures, one of the UK’s leading factual documentary makers, who also produced the previous five series.  Filming took place during the summer and autumn months to capture life onboard Majestic Princess.

We can’t wait for the series to transport viewers to exotic Asia and the stunning landmark locations of Australia and New Zealand on Majestic Princess.”
