The team set sail from the city to seek ways to promote its new cruises on Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady cruise ship, which was stationed in Portsmouth last summer.

Candidates had two days to create the advertising campaign and split into groups to discuss initial ideas before designing logos, shooting an advertising campaign on the Scarlet Lady’s rooftop pool, and pitching in front of cruise ship team members.

Back in the boardroom, Lord Alan Sugar was accompanied by Baroness Karren Brady and former winner Tim Campbell.
