Season 6 / Episode 3 and airs on 13 December 2019 21:00
Presenter Jane McDonald embarks on a series of ocean odysseys, and while she is no stranger to the open sea, the mega-cruiser she boards is a far cry from the 600-passenger vessel she is used to...
First part of the Wonder of Wakefield's two-part trip to India. In Kolkata, Jane visits the colourful chaos amid the largest flower market in Asia before setting sail on the Ganges River. Stop-offs include the temple city of Kalna, and Murshidabad where she explores the grand palaces of the city and discovers a religion close to her heart, before going off the beaten the track to see some local artisans at work.
The singer uncovers a little-known cruise route in the Great Lakes of America and Canada. Heading to post-industrial Cleveland, she joins her fellow cruisers to explore the sights of this re-emerging city, popping into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame to cast eyes on memorabilia from her musical heroes. Jane later visits the natural wonder that is Niagara Falls. Not satisfied with being drenched by the sheer force of the waterfalls, she opts to take an adrenalin-pumping zip-line across the falls. Then, ends her cruise by jet-boating across the perilous rapids outside Montreal.
The singer enjoys new adventures in the Mediterranean, cruising along the stunning, stylish Riviera. She begins in historic Rome, where she embarks on a vintage car tour of the city. That done, Jane joins her cruise vessel to sail to the tourist hotspots of Florence and Pisa. In Monte Carlo, she samples a hint of the millionaire lifestyle, meeting yacht masters and sneaking into a £8,000-per-night suite in one of Monaco's most exclusive hotels. While in Spain, she tastes tapas from Barcelona's world-famous La Boqueria food market, and then braves the heights of the vertigo-inducing King's Passage.
Starting in Budapest, Jane boards a steam train built at the peak of the Austro-Hungarian Empire for the exclusive use of the emperor and empress. It is not long before she is back on water though, boarding a luxury river ship to sail to the blossoming post-communist cities of Bratislava and Belgrade. From there, Jane heads towards one of the natural highlights of the Danube, the Iron Gates. After coming face to face with folkloric monsters and sampling the local moonshine, she finishes her journey in Romania's most popular destination, Bran Castle, the assumed home of Dracula.
