Excellent short story collection. All the stories occur or revolve around cruise lines or cruises. It's an excellent theme. If you don't try to read the whole volume in 1 week, the theme doesn't grow tiring either. There are classic mysteries such as Agatha Christie's locked room murder "Problem at Sea", a historical mystery by Jan Burke "Miscalculation" and some mysterious ghost shorts as well. While some shorts are above average, most are excellent short reads. Would love to see another volume with this type of theme on short stories. ( )
