The Cruise: Episode 3 (S1EP3 Channel 5 Sunday 3 July 2022)



A Caribbean cruise on the Scarlet Lady, one of the newest and most opulent ships at sea, is about to come to an end. After last night’s “Scarlet Night” pool party, there are some rowdy people on board despite the calm seas. Damien, a VIP “Rock Star,” treats himself to an IV drip that contains ingredients to relieve hangovers. But is it sufficient for him to continue taking pleasure in his cruise?

The passengers are organising a day full of activities and excursions as the ship docks in the stunning Bimini Island in the Bahamas. They have access to an exclusive, upscale beach club, and for many people, it is the excursion’s high point. The crew, however, finds the island paradise to be more of a nightmare! Although the facilities are constrained, they must still deliver the same five-star service that the sailors are accustomed to.

Leading the charge is perfectionist restaurant manager Jayon. He’s training up newbie Camila to his ultra-high standards, but will she make the grade? A family of ‘Rock Star’ VIPs have their day thrown into chaos, thanks to some poor planning, but can the crew rescue their special day and send them home smiling?

After running around the ship catering to her sailors’ demands, no-nonsense Rock Star Agent Selma becomes a ‘bouncer’ for the day, keeping roving spring breakers out of the exclusive VIP area. Finally, the bridge crew bid a fond farewell to their charismatic Italian captain Giovanni.
