We find this programme really good, at least on a par with the ITV cruise series and quite informative of behind the scenes as well as passengers views and some interesting shore excursions.
The Regal Princess showed just what Britannia could have been like if P&O hadn't employed Bland & Blander as the interior designers. The Viking river cruise one was interesting because of all the low bridges and locks they had to negotiate, the pop up bridge was very different.
Just watched Koningsdam and realised just what we have missed on the shore excursions in the Fjords because DW cannot negotiate coach steps.
Overall they are well balanced reviews of cruise life, but with one noticeable exception, there seems to be no coverage of any cabins.

Quite interesting

The head chef has been on a previous series but on a different cruise line.

Before, he was a perpetual whinger and everything was a drama while on Viking, he seemed quite chilled about everything.

A very attractive ship .
