The perfect summer story of a girl, several boys, and a cruise ship full of possibilities.
Lindsay has never been on a cruise, but she knows exactly what she wants to do now that she is: climb a waterfall, snorkel, meet lots of cute guys, and look for one perfect guy for a summer fling.
But her to-do list isn’t going according to plan, especially when she discovers that it’s impossible to have a fling-when you’re actually falling in love. (From: Goodreads)

“I can’t believe it! Everything is totally amazing!”
Ugh…nope. It was actually a total disaster.
So…this book is about a cruise. I’ve been on cruises before. Not those extreme luxurious ones. Just…normal ones…I guess? And when I was cruising, I certainly didn’t have the same sick thinking pattern as our main female character.
I’d made a list of all the things I needed to do in order to have a great time:
+ kiss a lot of cute guys
+ sleep with a guy for the first time
Whaaaaat the fuck? Who makes a list like that? Well, I don’t.
You have fun on a cruise because cruise is interesting. Those things up there were not.
Things I Liked About It
– the schedule of the trip
Man, that kind of cool trip was everything I need! Those people were not.
Things I Dislike About It
– Lindsay Darnell a.k.a. our protagonist
Her mind was so crooked that I really had trouble wanting to find out her lame cruising life.
You should read it if you
– want to plan a nice trip
You shouldn’t read it if you
– don’t want to waste your time
