I found this one interesting to read, and it reminded me a bit about my own travels by cruise ship. While I found some of it impossible to believe seriously, it was still good, and where it worked was in the varied characters that the three boys encounter. The ones that I found most interesting were Miss Lasqueti, who just might be a spy, and the prisoner who only appears at night, escorted by guards and manacled, as he's allowed on deck for air. It is a good, if not great, read. I give it four stars and a recommend.
