A cruise director and a lonely woman, all the makings for a “Love Boat” connection. Caitlyn Moore is finally taking her dream vacation, a vacation that she has saved for years, only she is taking it alone. Although the Alaskan cruise was booked for two and her ex-fiance Adam did not show she was unable to add her sister. When Gregory Ash, the cruise director accidentally bumped into Caitlyn and her phone and lifeline to her sister fell overboard, she had no way of knowing how that mishap would change her life.
The moment Greg and Cait set eyes on each other there was a feeling of déjà vu. Had they met before. or was it fate taking over? Strict rules forbid Greg from having any kind of interaction with a guest, but it is a rule he is finding hard to follow. Once again, he finds himself coming to her rescue when there is an argument in her cabin. The previously absent Adam has shown up, wanting to pay for her half of the trip. Why? So she can leave the boat and Adam and his new wife can have a honeymoon. Her first reaction was to claim she didn’t know him and that she had amnesia after an accident, so the two of them have a very uncomfortable time sharing a cabin hoping a new stateroom will magically appear.
Caitlyn and Adam were engaged, and she broke off their engagement by phone, returning his ring by messenger. She knew they were not meant for each other and she ran. Greg tries as hard as he can to stay away from Caitlyn, but to no avail especially when his bar piano player gets ill before they even leave the dock. When he hears Caitlyn play the piano, he offers her the job, but he has a lot of convincing to do because she suffers from stage fright. Even though she is a music teacher she is not comfortable performing in front of people.
What happens on this cruise between Caitlyn, Greg, and Adam is not something I will reveal but I will say that this was a beautiful story and a life changing cruise.
