More About This episode

More than a luxury hotel at sea, Norwegian Breakaway is a floating city, with a whopping 29 restaurants, 22 bars and lounges, a Vegas-style casino, and a full-scale theater bigger than some Broadway venues. She was built faster than any other cruise ship in history, and she's about to cast off on her first journey straight into a North Atlantic tempest. Hop aboard this mega cruiser on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, the same route Titanic sailed in 1912, only with much worse weather.
