Nancy and her friends must navigate a cruise ship crisis in the first book of the Nancy Drew Diaries, a fresh approach to a classic series.

Nancy, Bess, and George are cruising dangerous waters on a tour of Alaska. Becca Wright, an old friend of Nancy’s, is the Assistant Cruise Director of the Arctic Star, a posh new ship. But Becca needs Nancy’s help when strange things keep happening aboard the opulent ocean liner: The swimming pool becomes a floating grave; a famous passenger is threatened; and even the seemingly innocent mini-golf course becomes a perilous playground. With the majestic and mysterious Alaskan scenery as a backdrop, Nancy and company have to find out who’s trying to sabotage the maiden voyage and why.

          Nancy, Bess, and George are called by an old friend to figure out who is sabotaging the Arctic Star. Is it the little kid genius who hates being on board? Or is it that guy who is always turning up whenever strange things happen? One thing is for sure, Nancy and crew are going to have a lot of mysteries on hand.

            I will never read this book because I think that these books are just copies of the original Nancy drew series

                    This book was off the hook! My sister read it and I thought, "Oh. I'm probably not gonna read that." But it was great! It is about how Nancy and her friends go on a cruise and end up tangled in a mystery! There is a "body" in the pool, a falling chandelier and a falling moose antler that almost crushes Nancy! I'd love to share more, but I don't want to spoil it. Hope you read it!

                      Wonderful! I never would've guessed who was behind the terrible events on the cruise! Deeply thought-out!
