About the Show

Cruise Inc.: Full Length Show
An exclusive look inside the multi-billion cruise industry. CNBC takes you onboard a city at sea where passengers are motivated to spend big money.

CNBC takes you aboard a city at sea where passengers are enticed to spend big money…but can this fast growing segment of the travel industry navigate the rough seas of a slumping economy and stay afloat?

Correspondent Peter Greenberg takes you cruising for profits.

It's the ultimate getaway...an exclusive look inside the $30-billion cruise industry. Correspondent Peter Greenberg spends seven days aboard the Norwegian Pearl, one of the newest in Norwegian Cruise Line's fleet. The 15-story floating city is a destination of its own. It's a hotel, a shopping mall, a casino and full-service spa — sailing the oceans of the world. And be prepared to spend on everything from oil paintings to Botox!

Big ships cost big money, and one misstep, whether it's bad weather, a late departure or even running short on beer, can mean the difference between profits and loss.
