From Netflix: CNBC takes you inside the $30 billion cruise industry as correspondent Peter Greenberg reveals the delicate balance between profits and losses. From safety to pricing, you'll see a side of Norwegian Cruise Line that you never knew existed.
The cruise staff appears to push alcohol sales through sales gimmicks such as "beverage education courses". They needed to sell more than $100,000 worth of alcohol just to break even on the 6-day cruise. Every movement on the ship is watched by more than 1,000 security cameras that are present everywhere but the restrooms and the bedrooms.
