Jane McDonald, who is a cruise legend herself, will board the MSC Meraviglia to discover the ‘wonder’ of the Mediterranean.

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 amazing ships and exotic destinations. The four-part travel show will see Jane set sail for a second time with MSC Cruises, the world’s largest family-owned cruise line, this time to explore the sights and scenery of the Mediterranean onboard the Company’s brand new flagship MSC Meraviglia.

The  ship which can hold up to 5,714 guests at full capacity is over twice the size of the ship Jane worked on-board when she shot to fame back in 1998. Her 7 night stay on board the ship, which first came into service in June 2017, 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.

MSC Meraviglia, which means ‘Wonder’ is the biggest ship to feature in either series  of the successful show, and the second MSC ship Jane has sailed on with the presenter visiting MSC Divina in series one.

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.”

Make sure to tune in and watch Jane McDonald on the Meraviglia at 9pm on Channel 5, Friday 8th September 2017. If you’re interested in a cruise on the MSC Meraviglia, check out our dedicated MSC Meraviglia cruise deals page on our website.
