The two episodes of “Cruising with Susan Calman” will air on BBC’s Channel 5 on Friday, April 15 and Friday, April 22, each at 8 p.m. Each episode in an hour long, and sets sail with Harmony of the Seas from Barcelona to several iconic European destinations, including Palma de Mallorca, Rome, and Naples.

“We were so pleased to welcome Susan and her team on board Harmony and give her a taste of the fun to be had with Royal Caribbean while in the Mediterranean,” said Ben Bouldin, vice president, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Royal Caribbean International. “I hope these episodes will inspire new and returning guests to book a getaway with us this summer.”

Along the way, Calman will explore historic Roman sights including the famous Spanish Steps, kayak around Mallorca’s glistening coastline, and make a traditional Napoleon pizza in the heart of Naples – all popular experiences available through Royal Caribbean’s shore tours.

Furthermore, the show will also highlight the amazing features of the Oasis-class vessel. From scaling one of the two 40-foot-tall rock climbing walls and catching waves on the FlowRider surf simulator to quenching her thirst with a drink served by robots at the Bionic Bar, Calman showcases her first-hand experience of a signature Royal Caribbean holiday.

Harmony of the Seas is one of the world’s largest cruise ships, weighing in at 226,963 gross tons and measuring 1,188 feet long and 217 feet wide. The ship has a guest capacity of 5,479 guests at double occupancy, and up to 6,780 passengers when fully booked.
