More About This episode

Wind Star Cruises promises the adventure of a lifetime to all who cast off aboard its luxury yacht Wind Surf. She's the largest sailing ship in the cruise world, but her passenger capacity is relatively small, with room for just 300. For this eight-day voyage, Mighty Ships has added you to the guest list as this nautical marvel travels down Venice's Grand Canal and into the Adriatic Sea. A faulty bow thruster and a brewing storm could mean a rough ride, but the captain and crew are determined to make this a smooth sail for everyone.
