Danny Forster ventures from Finland to Florida to see how the world's biggest cruise ships are created and then sail.

Danny follows the construction of one of the 11-story floating cities and then boards a working sister ship for a behind the scenes look.

The biggest cruise ships on earth are longer than an aircraft carrier and twice the height of the Statue of Liberty.

Danny hops aboard the Freedom of the Seas in the Caribbean to find out how this self-sufficient floating city feeds, sleeps and entertains over 4,000 guests.

He then heads to a remote, icy port in Finland, to help build Freedom's sister ship, Independence of the Seas, and finds himself driving a 600-ton gantry crane and drinking a lot of Finnish coffee. He discovers that everything is oversized when you're dealing with these super-cruisers.
