Synopsis by Alice Day
This A&E production continues to explore many kinds of ships, giving their histories, touring actual ships, and frequently offering the experience of a ride onboard the featured vessel. Dramatic re-enactments and archival footage enhance the presentations, giving the viewer more of an experience of the era in which the ships had their heyday. Expert commentary is given by naval historians and other scholars. In Great Ships: Time Lines -- Sea Cloud and Wind Song, the focus is on two private cruise ships as they cross the international date line to the Marquesa and Solomon Islands.
