The cruise ship was a dream. A seagoing pleasure city. The passengers came for that dream. The young, the old, the infirm; all were welcome provided they had the money. The crew that served them were also part of the dream. Voyage after voyage she proved that dreams come true and slowly the sea became forgotten. But the sea did not forget the ship.
One man tried to warn of the consequences of this forgetfulness but it was too late. He was the past and the ship was the future. Until one cold dark night. When the laughter turned to screams and the unsinkable turned to the unthinkable.
This is a story of a ship that lost her way, of a crew that forgot the sea, those who paid the price and those who learnt about how cruel the sea can be.
It could happen tomorrow.
