The hit Smithsonian Channel show “Mighty Cruise Ships” is back, and already amidst its second season. The show takes a look at some of the world’s mightiest, most remarkable cruise vessels. This season profiles six unique ships, visiting destinations from the tropical Caribbean, to the frozen Northwest Passage, to the idyllic Mediterranean. It airs Sunday nights at 8 pm eastern time, and we’ve got the early details on three upcoming episodes for you.
“Royal Clipper” – Sunday, September 24
Royal Clipper, built in 2000, preserves the traditional seagoing ways of the late 1800s, and on a very grand scale. The modern-day tall ship boasts five 190-foot masts, and 42 sails. Follow along as the show sets sail down the western coast of Italy, east to Greece, and north into the Adriatic Sea. For the guests, its a 12-night voyage of luxury and romance; for the crew, it’s a non-stop adventure of torn sails, a broken motor, and some missing passengers.

“Ocean Endeavour” – Sunday, October 1
Ocean Endeavour is about the furthest thing from a tropical pleasure cruise. The Arctic expedition offers guests an ocean odyssey through glacial waters and into remote regions that larger cruise ships don’t dare go. Join the show on a 12-day polar adventure from the west coast of Greenland across the Davis Strait into Canada and through the Northwest Passage.

“MSC Divina” – Sunday, October 8
MSC Divina is a taste of Europe right in the blue, warm waters of the Caribbean. Designed by Italian naval architects, the ship offers each of its 4,200 guests a “taste of the sweet life.” However, this particular voyage from Miami will be a rough ride for the ship’s crew. A tropical storm brewing nearby builds to hurricane force, and is on a course towards the final two ports of the cruise, potentially ending the cruise on a very sour note.
