Later, Carly got into an argument with Sam and Freddie after overhearing them depaturing iCarly and left them.

Meanwhile, Carly and Dustin spend time one last time before admitting that he lived on this boat since he was born and he was homeschooled. Reports are heard that the ship is going to crash, causing stress for Dustin who accidentally slaps Carly in anger. Carly, upset, ran away from him and heads to Freddie, Sam and Spencer to warn them about the ship about to crash.

Meanwhile, Sam, who went out on a date, has been arrested for stealing, but she's claiming that she didn't steal anything. Carly, Freddie and Spencer managed to escape Sam from jail and leave the boat. However, the cruise is heading towards to a iceberg. Carly begs the policemen to help them rescue the ship from getting hit.

When the storm arrives, the ship is heading towards the iceberg. Carly, Sam and Freddie are having trouble turning the ship around. Thanks to Dustin and the sailers, they became heroes rescuing the ship from getting destroyed. Carly and Dustin ended their romantic relationship as Carly accepts Dustin to stay on a cruise.
