A behind-the-scenes documentary filmed on MSC Seaside is set to air on Channel 5.
Secrets of the Mega Cruise Ship will give viewers the chance to see life on the ship as 5,000 passengers visit destinations across the Caribbean.
Film cameras were given access to the ship’s dining venues and bars, and also below deck where performers prepare to appear in shows and staff get ready to work in the restaurants.
The 90-minute documentary, due to appear on Channel 5 tonight (Monday), also features sections on the vessel’s waste disposal and water systems.
MSC Seaside sails 365 days a year with around 1,500 officers and crew onboard, according to the line.
Antonio Paradiso, managing director for MSC Cruises UK and Ireland, said: “It is an honour to have this great opportunity to show the British public another of our beautiful ships and all the onboard features we are famous for, while also offering a unique behind-the-scenes look at the goings-on of one of the world’s most advanced cruise ships.
“There is no better way to demonstrate how fantastic cruising is than to physically show people, and this feature-length documentary provides a great opportunity to do just that.”
