CNBC Original, "CRUISE INC: BIG MONEY ON THE HIGH SEAS" will Premiere on March 24th (ALL TIMES ARE ET)

A CNBC Original, "CRUISE INC: BIG MONEY ON THE HIGH SEAS" will premiere on Tuesday, March 24th at 9PM/1AM. The documentary will repeat on Sunday, March 29th at 10PM.


CNBC takes you on the ultimate getaway with an exclusive look inside the multi-billion dollar cruise industry. Correspondent Peter Greenberg spends seven days aboard the Norwegian Pearl, one of the newest in Norwegian Cruise Line's fleet. The 14-story floating city is a destination of its own. It has a full-service medical center, a state of the art surveillance system, and offers passengers every opportunity to spend on anything from sushi-making to BINGO, even Botox!

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

Cruising is the fastest growing segment of travel, but can Norwegian, the third largest player in the industry, navigate the rough seas of a slumping economy and tough competition to stay afloat?

Spend a week in the Caribbean with CNBC. "Cruise Inc: Big Money on the High Seas", CNBC's first High-Definition documentary, premieres Tuesday, March 24 at 9p/1a ET.
