All she really wanted was to celebrate her birthday on a cruise with her entire family. Was that too much to ask? Yes, Sharon, that was too much to ask.
Annette Feldman books a cruise for her entire family to celebrate her 70th birthday. It's been over ten years since all her people were under one roof for more than twenty-four hours.
So, a cruise. There's so much to do! Activities for everyone! Unending buffets! Nightlife! Excursions! It's perfect!
Except the family can't read the room and take a cue from the Carnival commercials that this is SUPPOSED TO BE FUN. So, they bicker, old sibling rivalries are reinvigorated, the teenage grandkids are nothing but trouble, and everyone seems hell-bent on unearthing and airing all the family secrets.
For everyone with a less-than-perfect family, this is your escape.
