After getting married, Emily’s family books them all on a cruise. Unfortunately, that means that their family will be along for the ride. Can Emily and Patrick have a wonderful time while dealing with everyone else’s issues?
The main storyline is Emily and Patrick’s argument about having kids but there are plenty of small stories in the mix. Some examples are Angela discovering her passion for fashion designing, Evelyn having a crush on old flame Jon Tones (guess who that’s supposed to be) while Edward gets jealous, and Brigid having to deal with the unwanted advances of Emily’s Uncle Antonio. What I like about this is that even though the game stars Emily, it’s really about the other characters. Each of them have their own problems they have to deal with and don’t always have time for Emily, which is realistic.
The game play is the same as the previous ones in the Delicious series with a few exceptions. You now have to serve Emily and Patrick a few times in order to get a gold star. Sometimes you only have to serve one of them and in a few venues, you serve different couples. You still have to serve people and pass the minimum goal in order to advance (trying for expert to get more decoration money), but you can’t get the money for decorations when you replay the level. That’s all right because you can actually visit the venue again in order to finish collecting decorations.
This game is addictive and amusing. I give it 8 out of 10; the best and possibly last of the series.
