Being a fan of travel, my Netflix recommendations always seem to have some travel related content so when the new movie Like Father was recommended we grabbed a glass of wine and sat down to watch. We were happily surprised to find out it was set on a cruise ships and it got us thinking about our favorite movies about cruise ships.
BEST Cruise ship movies list
The newest addition to the cruise ship movie genre. Starring two Wandermust Family faves Kristin Bell and Kelsey Grammar this movie is set almost entirely on the Royal Caribbean Harmony of the Seas!
Of all the movies filmed on cruise ships I think this one is my favourite as the ship really shines in this movie.
Jack and jill
A film which has been universally panned and won a total of 10 Razzies! However the presence of a cruise ship and the fat I was watching on a cruise ship means that I have happy memories of this slapstick comedy! The Jack and Jill cruise ship is the Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas!
Alvin and the chipmunks – one of the best kids movies set on cruise ships
A family friendly cruise film – the latest Alvin and the Chipmunks franchise is set aboard the Carnival Dream!
Another one for the whole family to watch! Though not entirely set on a cruise ships the film culminates aboard a Cunard ship!
An affair to remember 1957
One of the best romantic cruise ship films from a romantic cruising age! If you are looking for the best An Affair to Remember – one of the best romance cruise ship movies this one has to top the list
Death on the Nile – one of the best detective movies with cruise ships
I couldn’t help but add this Poirot to the list! One of my favorite literature characters on a cruise route I’d love to do (The Nile) which is why I think this is one of the best detective movies with cruise ships
Speed 2 cruise control – one of the best movies about cruise ships
Not one to be watched if you are taking your first cruise and are a bit anxious! This is one of the best action packed movies that take place on a cruise ship.
The Poseidon Adventure 2006
This 2006 remake is another that isn’t for those that are anxious about cruising but is a great action packed film. A New Years Eve Party goes awry when a rogue wave hits a cruise ship on a transatlantic crossing!
And although not a film I couldn’t not mention one of my favorite episodes of my all time favorite TV show – Frasier! The Voyage of the Damned episode taps into many peoples worst fears about what a cruise is like!
