Having never cruised before, popular TV presenter Phillip Schofield was very excited to be introduced to this brilliant style of holiday with the prestigious Princess Cruises.
He became the very first UK brand ambassador for the cruise line in April 2017, and soon began the exciting journey of getting to know the ships and itineraries that Princess Cruises offer. After spending time with the crew and making the most of behind-the-scenes access, Phillip has now honed a unique and helpful knowledge about the cruise line, which will only increase as he experiences more holidays with them. Find out what he thought about his very first cruise onboard Royal Princess:
It’s clear to see that like many who are new to cruise, Phillip had a few ideas a misconceptions about what the experience would be like. Many assume the food will be a let-down, embarkation will be chaotic, and atmosphere might not be all that exciting. In fact, some incredible, award-winning cuisine is served, lines like Princess Cruises work hard to offer a seamless embarkation and disembarkation process, and there is so much to do onboard that you can find just the atmosphere you’re after.
Phillip and his wife enjoyed their first cruise experience on a Mediterranean itinerary that included Barcelona where they explored the beautiful sights of the city, and Marseille where they toured a vineyard and enjoyed a wine or two. Find out more about the fantastic adventure:
More recently, Philip and his wife and daughter embarked upon Regal Princess, for a brilliant Baltic cruise. On this holiday they had chance to explore Oslo and the fascinating glass works there, as well as make the most of a day at sea, utilising the ship’s many facilities.
Fans of Schofe can rest assured there will be plenty more updates about his adventures with the cruise line, but in the meantime why not take a look at our range of Princess Cruises holidays and plan your own fantastic getaway.
