A three-part series following hotelier and TV personality Francis Brennan as he sails the Baltic capitals on the 3,560-guest Regal Princess cruise ship.
During each hour-long episode Francis gains an insight into what life is like for the ship’s 1,600 crew members by stepping into the shoes of three of the most senior onboard roles: Maitre ‘D, Entertainment Director and Hotel General Manager.
Under the watchful eye of each crew member, Francis sees if he has what it takes to give the ship’s guests the holiday of a lifetime. Francis tries and meets a wide range of challenges, from learning first-hand what it takes to be Maitre’ D and ensuring a smooth service in the ship’s seven restaurants and numerous eateries; to arranging onboard activities for guests with the Entertainment Director; to overseeing the entire ship with its 5,000 guests and crew alongside the Hotel General Manager.
In keeping with Francis Brennan's Grand Tour, this series sees Francis host a number of guided shore excursions, exploring all that the Baltics have to offer. The ship sails from Copenhagen as guests explore Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Tallinn, Berlin and Oslo.
