MSC Cruises is to feature in a fly-on-the-wall documentary, airing tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.

The 90-minute show, called ‘Secrets of the Mega Cruise Ship’, was filmed on MSC Seaside.

It will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the inner-workings of the ship, highlighting a range of on-board facilities, including 11 dining venues and 19 bars and lounges.

Below deck, the documentary explores everything from show rehearsals and restaurant service to advanced waste disposal and clean water systems.

MSC Cruises MD for UK and Ireland Antonio Paradiso 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.”

MSC Seaside is currently sailing seven-night itineraries from Miami to the Caribbean.

From November 2019, these sailings will include the cruise line’s private island, Ocean Cay.
