Product description...

Cruise captures the eternal desire of working people to fulfil a fantasy that eludes them in their everyday world, where individuals get lost in the routine of work, family commitment and paying bills. The cruisers are pampered, served, entertained and fed by a crew who are engaged in their own struggles with reality. The fun seekers themselves, cannot completely escape their own challenges. Both groups are called upon to deal with their human conditions but also, to continue to seek and follow their dreams. Nature and fate intervenes and the cruise community is forced to band together in the fight for survival on the high seas. Captain Andrew Smolenki and his vivacious, spirited Cruise Director, sprung from different backgrounds, join together in a determined effort to avoid the catastrophe of over three thousand passengers and crew, going to the floor of the ocean. With them would go their dreams and their chances of redeeming themselves and getting a second chance to fulfill their lives on their return to port. This is a tale of a journey of sweet pain, love and romance in which battles are won and some are lost.
