All aboard for an arousing adventure filled with peculiar passengers and conspiring crew members.
Group Size up to 20 guests (can be expanded for up to 80 guests)
After a luxurious week at sea, all those on board the Mystery of the Seas are ready for a night of romance and intrigue at the Captain’s Cocktail Reception—an extravagant affair to top all others.
Adrift on the ocean, there is no better place to escape your troubles…or for a murderer to strike.
Could the killer be the commanding captain who has found his personal life out of control? A seething spouse who has discovered the dastardly deception of their darling? Or possibly a conniving contestant who will do anything to be crowned ambassadress by the cruise line?
Trapped at sea, no one is safe and everyone is a suspect. As secrets are revealed, everyone’s innocence will come into question as the assassin tries to appear angelic. Sharpen your sleuthing skills, for that’s what you will have to rely on to call out the killer!
Check your baggage and set sail for a sinuous night of secrets, scandals and seafaring scoundrels.
