Channel 5 has confirmed that the hugely popular TV series ‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ will be back for a third series starting from 9 February 2018.
The first episode of series 3 will feature Jane on Princess Cruises’ Ruby Princess as she discovers California.
Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said: “‘Cruising with Jane McDonald’ has been an outstanding success story and we’re delighted to be featuring in the first episode of the new series. It was a pleasure hosting Jane and we hope that the Channel 5 audience enjoys seeing the unique experiences California has on offer from the decks of Ruby Princess.”
Jane’s journey on Ruby Princess takes in some of the USA’s most recognisable landmarks, from LA’s iconic ‘Hollywood’ sign to San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.
Starting out in Los Angeles, Jane strolls along Hollywood’s ‘walk of fame’, goes shopping in Beverley Hills, and people watches in the resorts of Santa Monica and Muscle Beach.
During the two-day trip up to San Francisco, Jane explores Ruby Princess, with its four swimming pools, outdoor cinema and a seemingly endless array of bars and restaurants.
Once in San Francisco, she takes an open-topped bus tour, travelling alongside the world-famous cable cars and touring the atmospheric neighbourhoods such as Chinatown. Once back on board the ship, Jane attends a wedding between two of the passengers and signs up for her most unusual spa treatment – a massage in which her entire body is coated in melted chocolate.
