Mighty Ships

All Aboard! Mighty Ships Reveals the Secret Mechanics Behind the World’s Most Sophisticated Vessels Beginning July 22

Leaving 24-hour buffets, deck-side cocktail parties and peppy cruise activity directors to “tamer” ships, Discovery Channel climbs aboard to offer an exclusive look at some of the coolest working vessels in the world with the premiere of its new original Canadian series, Mighty Ships.

Premiering Tues., July 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel (and then following on Discovery HD on Sun., July 27 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT), each episode of the six-part series provides unprecedented access to everything above and below deck, from the mechanics of modern sea-going to the human dramas facing seafarers. Whether it’s cargo container ships, ice-breakers or livestock carriers, Mighty Ships is as much about what happens inside the ship as the journey each vessel makes.

Building on the success of Discovery Channel’s Canadian special Mighty Ships: Queen Mary 2, this new original series provides the most exclusive access to some of the world’s most extraordinary working ships.

Shot entirely in High Definition, Mighty Ships features 5.1 surround sound and stunning visuals from aboard these vessels, as it explores the mechanics of the actual ships and the intricate relationships of those aboard.

Meet the crew and staff who navigate these ships and find out what makes their jobs so unique – and sometimes – very challenging.
