Anyone else catch CSI Miami this week? They used the Victory for a scene of a murder. (But never called it Carnival or the Victory) I found it funny that you saw it as the Victory, then they would flash scenes of an RCL ship and I think I saw a Princess ship, then on their fancy CSI aiding computers, they had a "wire-model" schematic of a ship with 2 funnels that I think may have been a Celebrity ship... I think they wanted to offend each cruise line equally.
Moral of the story is don't fall overboard in the port or you will be consumed by the gazillions of sharks that apparently follow the cruise ships around waiting for dinner.
Hmmmm. Maybe that is where all those people go that "disappear" on cruises.
I haven't watched the episode yet because I was just getting back from a quick trip to Ft. Myers, but I saw promos. After the guy fell off the RCCL ship last year, I asked my husband how long he thought it would take for one of the shows to do a take off on that. Sheesh!
I'm going to have to watch closely (My husband taped it for me.). I'm glad you mentioned that info as now I'll really pay attention.
Sadly, since only about 11% of Americans have cruised the others get their perceptions of cruising from shows like this.
I did not see the show, but I have heard that footage of the old "Norway" was shown. This would have been the blue ship with two funnels. Celebrity ship's only have one funnel, and you will always recognize them by the big "X" on them.
The footage that I thought was a Celebrity ship was a computer wire model they had on a screen. Where they were trying to determine "where the victim walked around" the ship to get to his cabin. It did have 2 funnels (shaped like the Celebrity type funnels) If the Celeb ships are single funnel ( don't know them as well as the other lines), then this most likely old CAD drawings of another ship (maybe the Norway.)
Re: this episode and the plot and the captain and all. . . .
I watch CSI Miami. However, I don't know why I watch CSI Miami because EVERYTHING on that show -- starting with stupid David Caruso -- is so over the top. Yes. . . I believe that passengers fall/jump/are pushed off of cruise ships every day. . . . that captains carry guns and shoot sharks and bad guys all the time. . .God help us all who love to cruise because Hummer-driving (HA!) CSIs like Horatio Caine are going to save us.
PS. . . .Las Vegas is not anything like the show VEGAS, either.
Phew! Can't wait for my cruise. Hope the captain does a little target practice while we're out to sea.
