One of the newest ships of Princess Cruises will feature in a BBC programme - the upcoming ‘Sea Cities’ series. The 3-part documentary based in Port of Southampton visits several ports across the United Kingdom to view their events and activities, as well as meet seafarers and staff.

Princess Cruises’ 3,560-passenger Royal Princess will appear in ‘Sea Cities: Maritime Liverpool’ episode, highlighting what goes on behind the scenes of the 141,000 GT, 19-deck cruise vessel during a visit to the city.

The 60-minute episode will air on BBC2 February 18.


Royal Princess was christened in 2013 by HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge. The ship called in Liverpool 7 times in 2015 on round Britian cruises. 

Vice president Princess Cruises UK, Tony Roberts, 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.'
