Chris Pegg, Commercial and Marketing Manager, City Cruises, says: “Working with Netflix on their latest production ‘Bodies’ was an absolute thrill for City Cruises. It’s not just a significant moment for our team but also a captivating opportunity to showcase the beauty of our cruises to a global audience. This collaboration is undoubtedly one of the most exciting things to happen for us in a long time.”
River Prince is one of the largest vessels available and is primarily used for sightseeing and private charters. On the lower deck, there are large panoramic windows and upstairs there is a large open upper deck spread across two levels, holding capacity for up to 100 people.
