Princess Cruises’ brand ambassador, Phillip Schofield, recently boarded the Regal Princess as it sailed to the Baltics; the TV personality’s second sailing with the line.
A series of videos filmed during Schofield’s time on the 3,560-guest ship provide fans with a snapshot of his time spent both onboard and ashore.
The latest videos focus on the sheer relaxation of a day on the seas with Princess as Phillip samples the onboard facilities including ‘The Sanctuary’, the line’s luxurious spa-inspired top deck retreat, complete with serenity stewards.
Phillip Schofield said: “After our first cruise with Princess the bar really had been set high. We couldn’t wait to get on Regal Princess and from the moment we boarded, the ship, crew and destinations did not disappoint.”
A self-confessed wine enthusiast, Phillip also experiences the chef’s table lumiere, which includes a behind-the-scenes galley tour followed by a multi-course dinner.
The meal was created by the ship’s executive chef and served on a table surrounded by a curtain of light.
Additionally, Schofield samples the winemaker’s dinner which features menus developed in partnership alongside speciality winemakers, with food designed to pair with matching wines.
Once ashore, he proves a dab hand at the art of glass-blowing during a lesson in Oslo before temperatures drop during a visit to an ice bar.
Schofield continued: “I loved sampling the wealth of onboard facilities available during the calm of a day at sea and the excitement of discovering new activities such as glass blowing.
Cruising has opened not just my eyes, but those of my family, to any number of possibilities available both on Princess’ ships and a wealth of eye-catching destinations. We can’t recommend it enough.”
