Default MythBuster Show - What cruise ship?

Did anyone catch the recent episode of Mythbusters that's on TV recently?

I heard someone talking about it & for this particular show, it was about waterskiing (or some sort of board skiing) behind a cruise ship. Something about it could not be done because of the wake or something.

Does anyone know what cruise line or ship it was? The passengers were watching from the back of the ship. It took place in the California area.

I believe it was the Regal Empress - yes I lucked out and was channel SURFING - when that episode caught my eye... it really happened - the guy used a wake board and held onto a rope at the back of the ship; granted he was at least about 150yards or even further away from the back of the ship

he missed the rope on the first try and got it on the second try and probably only held on for a few minutes;

As I recall the ship was maintaining a steady 14 knots.

Love Mythbusters and loved that show. It was pretty neat seeing all the passangers watching from the top decks.

It would be quite a site to see...or even better, quite a thrill to do.
