Hello,

Has anyone seen the Amazon Prime  series "The Cruise"? The show follows the daily happenings of the Scarlet Lady by following a few select passengers. If you  did and have been on the ship, did they do a good job showing the real side of things?

 

This will be our first sailing on the Scarlet Lady and it gave us a good preview of what to expect, at least I hope it did.

I think it gave a pretty decent preview of what to expect. I've been on Scarlet three times now. Twice on a B2B right after sailing began and then just back in December.

It originally aired on Channel 5 in the UK two years ago. Some of the false drama and reliance on a cliffhanger before the ad break gets old quickly. I don’t think it always shows the line at its best.

Definitely the cliffhanger drama was a laugh. Working in a casino I do understand the drama that a "highroller" can come up with if things in their hotel room are the least little bit off. Imagine getting upset because the end of the toilet paper wasn't folded in a perfect triangle.

There's a 2nd season that's only partially aired. It was filmed on the Valiant in the med, and only after a few episodes it disappeared.

We have friends who were sailing as Rock Stars at the time, and they did quite a bit of filming with them. I hope they end up airing the complete 2nd season at some point.

I guess it wouldn't be much of a TV show without some dramatic cliffhangers 🙂.

 

I hope it come back for a second season as well, sounds like it started, we shall see.

 

Thanks to all for you replies.

I'm only thru the first episode.  What on earth is going on with someone trashing the marble in the bathroom in a suite?  Really?

Sounds like someone was actually trying to live the life of a "Rock Star"😉 Smash up rooms, that is what they do.🤩

It gets worse lol I mean its all fake drama.  The ship was still all shiny and new, and i imagine it was a "settling" problem for the tile, but it was swapped out and sailors would never have known. 

I would not be to shocked if the second season was canned either due to rating or at VV request lol

In a show on Netflix about (of all things) mermaids, VV is featured a lot in the final episode to do with a competition. Much more honest as you can just see people getting along in the background and enjoying the ship.

I watched this before I got on Valiant Lady in the Med. typical TV drama... What I remember most about the show was the captain asking the engineers if they could crank up the engines to produce more electricity to get the ship moving faster to make a port on time, I thought that was interesting.  Anyhoo

Just finished watching this, very interesting as I've already been on the ship to see the ins and outs of it. Also warmed me up for our upcoming voyage in a week 🙂
