Mega Cruise Ship
This episode explores the engineering secrets of one of the biggest cruise ships in history - the Carnival Horizon – as it powers through the waters of the Caribbean. This 66,000-ton floating titan is the height of luxury, stretching over 1,000 feet long and built to house thousands of guests on their tour of the Caribbean’s picture-perfect islands, whilst handling heavy seas, strong winds, and medical emergencies.
Blowing this floating city apart with CGI reveals five immense diesel engines that produce enough energy to power a town and rotating stainless-steel propellers that allow it to turn on a dime. These technological features make this cruise ship the ultimate mega machine.
