Royle Family actress heads on first cruise trip

Date Posted: 03 Jul 2009
Popular television personality Liz Smith has recently embarked on her first cruise holiday as part of a new television programme to be aired on BBC FOUR.

The 87-year-old is probably best known for her roles in The Royle Family and The Vicar of Dibley but has drifted out of her comfort zone to head on a luxury cruise.

She completed the documentary as part of the BBC's Grey Expectations series, exploring what can be achieved by people once they pass the age of 60.

Liz Smith's Summer Cruise starts from her sheltered accommodation and ends with a ten-day trip taking in locations such as Croatia and Venice, the latter of which she was visiting for the first time.

The programme gives a touching overview of the actress' life and the BBC highlights that she said: "It didn't bother me that the camera was always present, I'm used to it, but it was the travel that interested me."

P&O Cruises are one of a number of liners that provide the opportunity for people to enjoy a vessel trip to Venice, alongside other locations in the Mediterranean.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
