Thanks for the heads-up, Tim. I wonder if it'll be shown on week 3, following the sequence listed? That would make it being televised on 15th September.

The officer on the far right in the picture is from Manchester. We met him in the smoking room one day and then around the ship afterwards. A really lovely chap!

Hi,

Based on the information we've received from Channel 5, you're correct in that MSC Meraviglia will feature in episode 3 on Fri. 15th Sept.


Enjoy the show and let us know what you think!


Thanks,
Kerry

Thanks, Kerry. I've put a note on my calendar to watch out for it. I can't set a reminder for Channel 5 on our Sky box - it's in the "Added Channels" area which can't be set or recorded.

I'm looking forward to it, really enjoyed the first series. Went to see Jane live at the theatre earlier in the year, she puts on a wonderful show had the audience laughing and singing along at the end... although ~I cant help but think of the Victoria Wood parody!

Don't forget there is Demand 5 - they should have it on for about a month after the date it is originally shown

As 1fifthavenue has mentioned, I am currently watching episode one on catch-up. If it works for you the Meraviglia episode should be in a couple of weeks. Here is the link:

Thank you! The link gives an error message 'only works for persons located in the British Isles'. I'll save it to watch when I'm in London

Have you tried 'Tunnel Bear'. We're in Italy and use it occasionally when there is something on in the UK that we really want to see. We don't use it too often though otherwise our internet speed gets throttled!

Still, it was a lot more about Jane than the ship - lovely and funny and all that she is. I would have liked to have gotten more about the vibe onboard and whether there was any evening entertainment. I really didn't need to know about her heated rollers!

Or the cats, or the dolls......

Suite was nice though. £18,000 for the 14 night itinerary
