MSC Cruises Ship To Star In New Channel 5 Drama Series

Sparkling MSC Cruises ship MSC Virtuosa will be the backdrop to Channel 5’s latest nail-biting drama series, The Good Ship Murder. The series premieres on one of the spookiest days of the year – Friday 13th October 2023 at 9pm. 

Each episode of the Good Ship Murder will take place in different destinations such as Lisbon, Valencia, Barcelona, Le Havre, and Valletta – which, coincidentally, are some of the destinations that MSC Virtuosa is currently sailing too currently in the Mediterranean! 

The series will see Shayne Ward play cruise ship singer and ex-detective Jack Grayling as well as Catherine Tyldesley as first officer Kate Woods. Together they solve a string of mysterious incidents around different areas of the luxury liner, from the Carousel Lounge to the MSC Yacht Club.

This new series with Channel 5 will bring the magnificence of MSC Virtuosa into living rooms across the country, giving viewers an inside look into life onboard one of our world-class ships. The audience will not only be captivated by the thrilling storyline of The Good Ship Murder but the impressive and innovative array of features guests of all ages enjoy.

Antonio Paradiso, MSC Cruises’ UK & Ireland Managing Director

MSC Virtuosa will soon be a favourite among drama fans, but has long been a firm favourite among avid cruisers! She launched in November 2019 and is the second of the cruise line’s Meraviglia-plus Class ships, accommodating over 6,000 guests, 10 dining venues, 21 bars, five swimming pools, world-class entertainment, and Rob, the first-ever humanoid robotic bartender at sea.

Viewers can experience MSC Virtuosa for themselves as the ship is currently sailing from Southampton this month to destinations such as The Netherlands, Ireland, France and Spain, and after the winter season in The Middle East, will return to the UK in Spring 2024.

Or, for something a little different, cruisers can now hop on board MSC Cruises’ brand-new ship MSC Euribia – one of MSC Cruise’s most technologically advanced ships featuring a striking original hull design – which is also now sailing from Southampton.
