When Catherine Powe boarded the Carnival Ecstasy for a cruise to celebrate her 65th birthday, she wasn’t prepared for all the surprises that were in store for her!

Tipped off by her daughters that Catherine was a huge Today Show fan, Host Hoda Kotb flew down to Miami to surprise her on board. There were other surprises in store, as well, as Catherine’s other two daughters flew in to join their mom and sister for the three-day cruise to the Bahamas.

Kotb and Powe enjoyed a variety of the Carnival Ecstasy’s features together and all was captured on video for a segment that aired on the Today Show this morning.
