I think that I'm answering my own question, but I'll ask anyway. On board nuclear powered naval vessels, they make their own freshwater. On gas turbine naval vessels, and even massive diesel civilian merchant vessels make their own freshwater.

Do those absurdly massive cruise ships make their own water as well? It only seems logical, the must have the power, if they're able to move the damn things around... but I've never actually heard of it. If they set sail with some giant freshwater reservoir, well... I don't know, silly question I'm sure.

Yes, modern cruiseships have their own desalination water systems. (As well as the ability to catch rain water, recycle toilet/shower water into "grey water" for washing decks and windows, etc.)

Interestingly, the swimming pools aboard cruiseliners are typically outdoors, on the upper decks, and filled with filtered seawater.
