Schofield Swaps Presenter’s Sofa for Baltic Cruise Ship

Princess Cruises’ brand ambassador and TV personality, Phillip Schofield, recently swapped the presenters’ sofa for a ship and boarded the 3,560–guest Regal Princess as it sailed to the Baltics

The sailing was Phillip’s second with Princess Cruises.

A series of videos filmed during his time on Regal Princess are being made available on to provide a snapshot of his time spent both onboard and ashore.

The latest videos focus on the relaxation of a day at sea as Phillip samples the onboard facilities including ‘The Sanctuary’, a luxurious spa-inspired top deck retreat, complete with serenity stewards.

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 created by the ship’s executive chef and served on a table surrounded by a curtain of light. And Phillip gets to try the winemaker’s dinner, which features menus developed in partnership alongside speciality winemakers, with food designed to pair with matching wines.

Ashore, Phillip 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.

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. 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.”
