The 1950s vintage ocean liner Queen Isabella is making her final voyage before heading to the scrapyard. For the guests on board, among them Christine Thorne, a former journalist turned Maine farmer, it's a chance to experience the bygone mid-20th century era of decadent luxury cruising. The Isabella sets sail from Long Beach, California, into calm seas on a two-week retro cruise to Hawaii and back. When a time of crisis begins, Christine and other characters find themselves facing the unknown together in an unexpected and startling test of their characters.

Looked forward to this book but was very disappointed. Interesting story line that could have done so much more. Filled with trite and tired phases and very predicable story. At one point I said aloud, "of course this happens". Middle school romance scenario. Reader did a good job with very little content to work with.
