The crew abandoned a sinking ship, leaving behind a few hundred passengers. Who, then, came to the rescue? None other than the musicians, comedians, and other entertainers on staff. Led by a guitarist and a magician, the entertainers organized passengers and communicated with rescue craft both in the air and on sea to successfully get all 572 people home safe and sound. Guest: Andrew Pike, senior maritime lawyer and author of "Mayday Off the Wild Coast: The Epic Story of the Oceanos Rescue"
