Watched it. In fact I have it DVR'ed. I found it fairly interesting. As an engineer, I would have enjoyed it more if it went into more detail on the how's and why's of building a cruise ship versus the "man this thing is huge.. lets watch them build it" angle the show took. but still it was interesting.

They mentioned that after the inital sea trials found a damaged bearing, they could not go back into dry dock because the Freedom's sister ship was in there under construction. Anyone know the name of that one? And when its supposed to be coming on line?

It's called Liberty of the Seas, and is scheduled to debut in May 2007. I think May 19 may be the inaugural cruise for Liberty.
