Step aboard "the cruise ship from hell" (Stephen King) in this "satirical scream of a novel" (New York Times Book Review).

Hundreds of pleasure-seekers board The Beautiful Dreamer cruise ship for relaxation and fun in the Caribbean. For three sun-filled days, the journey seems to deliver all that the brochure promised. Until Day Four.
Without warning, the ship stops dead. Electricity and communications are cut off. Smoke pours out of the engine room. The passengers and crew have no way to call for help and are stranded in the Gulf of Mexico. At first, all aboard are certain that rescue teams will come looking for them soon. All they have to do is wait. Supplies soon run low, the toilets stop working and a virus plagues the ship, but when the body of a woman is discovered in her cabin, irritation escalates to panic. There's a murderer on board The Beautiful Dreamer...and maybe something worse.

Worth reading for the ending.

About 328 pages long. Character names ( of the crew) are a little hard to follow. Found the story pretty interesting. I wonder if the author who wrote this book was on the Carnival Trumph ? Being someone who has cruised many times, a lot of what is written here rings true. The story slowly builds . Rape, murder, ghosts, the devil? This book seems to have it all. At the end, the story starts to go into the Twilight Zone. Overall, not a bad story.

Couldn't get into this book - read about 50 pages. Boring! First time I read this author and won't be reading anymore of her books!

This book started off with such promise and ended up a disjointed mess. It went nowhere.

To those of you above saying the ending is bad. Read her other book Day four and you'll understand it. This is a great book.

Good start, builds suspense, and then......nothing! There is no real ending, no explaination, not even a hint of what happened. Its as if the author just ran out of ideas. Very disappointing.

This is one of the worst books I have ever read. A disjointed mess that must be avoided at all costs.
