After the huge success of Cruising with Jane McDonald earlier this year, the cruising legend is back for series two where she is set to explore more ships and exotic destinations. The four-part show airs on Channel 5 on Friday 1 September, but viewers who are waiting to see Jane on board MSC Cruises will have to wait until the 8 September for this episode to air.
The second series will see Jane set sail for a second time with MSC Cruises on board MSC Meraviglia, with the presenter previosuly visiting MSC Divina in series one. During her 7-night stay on board the ship, viewers will see her embark in Naples and explore destinations including Messina, Valetta, Barcelona, Marseille and Genoa as she tries local food and drink, and explores and entertains, by taking part in a variety of activities.
Antonio Paradiso, MD for MSC Cruises UK & IRL said ‘It is an honour to show the British public another of our beautiful ships, this time the newest vessel in our ever-expanding modern fleet. Jane was one of the first guests to experience MSC Meraviglia and we can’t wait to see what she thought.”
“There is no better way to challenge stereotypes and demonstrate how fantastic cruising is for all ages, than to physically show people and this popular TV series does just that. The show is fantastic for the industry as a whole as it raises awareness of cruising as a holiday choice for everyone, and illustrates the accessibility and affordability of cruising as it is today.
“We are proud that a holiday with MSC Cruises is easier than ever for British guests, as next year MSC Magnifica will home port from Southampton for the Summer season, providing an opportunity to access the beauty of the Mediterranean and Northern Europe without the hassle of flying.”
MSC Meraviglia is currently sailing in the Mediterranean until April 2018, before heading to Northern Europe where her home port will be Hamburg. MSC Meraviglia will make her UK maiden call on 26 April 2018 where she will call at Southampton.
