Cruising with Jane McDonald is back – featuring Princess Cruises ‘Down Under’
I have some more exciting cruise TV news for you!
Princess Cruises will exclusively feature in all three episodes of the next series of Channel 5’s BAFTA-winning show, ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’, which airs from 9pm on Friday 4 January.
In the latest series, Jane McDonald travels around Australia combining a 12-night cruise onboard the 2,000-guest Sun Princess – as the ship sails the West Coast of Australia. This follows her trip to New Zealand during the last series when she came face to face with an angry wallaby!
Don’t miss Cruising with Jane McDonald’s Christmas Special on 24th December, 9pm on Channel 5. In this one-off special, Jane travels the Rhine River for a festive cruise.
During her time on Sun Princess the former cruise ship singer explores the variety of entertainment onboard, dines at the Chef’s Table and even attends a wedding between two guests on the line’s original ‘Love Boat’. Some of the far-flung destinations visited included Albany, Freemantle, Geraldton and Broome.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice-president UK and Europe, said: “We’re delighted to host Jane McDonald onboard Sun Princess as she experiences Australia.”
“We’re looking forward to viewers joining Jane on the other side of the world as she enjoys a relaxing cruise on the beautiful Sun Princess, while visiting some of Australia’s hidden gems including the Pink Lakes of Geraldton and Broome’s dramatic shoreline.”
I can’t wait for this programme to return to our screens. This is a double-helping of cruise TV for UK viewers, who recently discovered that ITV’s The Cruise will be back on our screens on Thursday 3rd January! Princess Cruises will be featured in both TV programmes!
