Mythbuster Adam Savage to host a specialty themed cruise this fall

You may not know the name Adam Savage, but you have probably seen him on an episode of “Mythbusters” on television. Savage will be leading a themed cruise this fall on the Discovery Princess with a Q&A, ship tours, and more.

Cruise ship guests will have the opportunity to meet Savage, learn about his career, and even get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Discovery Princess with ship godparent Savage as their guide. The cruise sets sail onboard Discovery Princess, Nov. 25-29, 2023, from the Port of Los Angeles for a four-day West Coast Getaway to San Diego and Ensenada.

In addition, Savage is launching an exclusive video series that takes viewers on a up-close-and-personal journey of the Sun Princess, currently under construction and set to debut in early 2024. Shot aboard Sun Princess at the Fincantieri shipyard, the first video of the series is available below, and reveals never-before-seen glimpses of the groundbreaking Dome and Sphere features, as the series reveals the ship’s birth from the ground up.

“When I was asked what part of the ship I wanted to see during the christening of Discovery Princess in 2022, I chose the engine room and spent five hours learning about how the many complex systems onboard are able to efficiently — and almost invisibly — service thousands of customers’ needs. The scale of it is staggering,” said Savage.

“The engineering of these ships, including Sun Princess, is riveting to me. Fresh off an Alaska cruise on Discovery Princess myself, I can’t wait to meet fellow passengers and share all the exciting below-deck technology I’ve learned about in science and engineering in general and cruise ships in particular. Also, I absolutely love trivia – it’s going to be a fun time.”  

Adam Savage theme cruise activities include:

  • Introduction at Sailaway Party 
  • Q&A presentation in the Princess Theater 
  • Meet & Greets with photo opportunities
  • Exclusive glimpse into the heart of the ship as Savage personally guides guests through the theater, laundry, galley, and more on a Guided Ship Tour (reservations onboard; fee applies). 
  • Specialty dinners, hosted by Savage (may be reserved onboard; fee applies)
  • Hosted Trivia Game Experience 
  • Camp Discovery activity tailored exclusively for younger cruisers

Savage is a special effects designer and fabricator, television personality, and producer. He was one of the original co-hosts of the Discovery series “MythBusters”. In 1993, Savage concentrated his career in the special effects industry, honing his skills through more than 100 television commercials and a dozen feature films, including Star Wars Episodes I and II, Galaxy Quest, and the Matrix sequels. 

Since the original version of “the series”Mythbusters” ended in March 2016, Savage has hosted“MythBusters Jr.” and “Savage Builds”, and today, he is the editor-in-chief and lead content creator at Tested.com

In April 2022, Savage along with other Warner Bros. Discovery personalities including renowned fashion designer Randy Fenoli, esteemed chef Alex Guarnaschelli, and real estate virtuoso Page Turner officially named Discovery Princess, serving as the ship’s godparents in a traditional maritime ceremony at the Port of Los Angeles.
