Brendan's Love Cruise

Brendan Sheerin, Captain of the Love Cruise, has invited 70 single men and women to try and find romance on board a luxurious cruise ship sailing the Mediterranean. After more than 25 years in the travel business, Brendan knows all about holiday romance and he's putting his knowledge to good use as he plays Cupid to help his shipmates find love.

In each episode one man and one woman choose from a selection of three potential shipmates. Brendan sets up speed dates, talent contests and dancing classes to bring out the best in his shipmates. If their date is a success they’ll continue the romance on board, if there's no spark then their date has to pack their suitcase and walk the plank to be left behind at the next port.

Over the course of the series, our cast of eager singletons travel thousands of miles around the Mediterranean taking in some of the most beautiful locations in Europe including Sicily, Genoa and Tunis. In each port the daters sample the local delights together, from wine tasting to a Segway safari and even a gladiator school, and back on board they make the most of the ship’s countless bars, beauty parlours and swimming pools.

All human emotion is laid bare in the endlessly fascinating, and sometimes embarrassing, world of dating: from a 52 year old mother of three who’s been single for sixteen years and chooses a man younger than her son, to a just divorced singleton who’s so hungry for love she decides to take all three of her potential suitors out, to a man whose date forgets his name, turns up an hour late and can’t get over what she calls his “height restriction”.
