Editorial Reviews

>VERBOSE -- Paul O'Brian's Interactive Fiction Page

The Cruise is, by all appearances, its author's first game. Everybody's a rookie once, and the slack that people are inclined to give to somebody's debut outing can cover a multitude of sins. Alas, however: not this many.

An interesting cruise ship that devolves into a find-crystal-beat-wizard game, July 16, 2017

This game had a really promising opening. You board a cruise ship, and you are unguided; you wander into a gift shop, and can buy many things, there is a 4-day schedule, meals are offered throughout the day, etc.

And then BAM, it becomes a completely unoriginal text adventure where you have to solve unmotivated puzzles to find crystals to defeat a wizard. Why? It was so promising...
