Questions You May Have After

What cruise did they go on?

We know that that the daughter and father were on a cruise that was originally intended to be the honeymoon cruise. They’re on a Royal Caribbean seas cruise on the Harmony of the Seas ship. Fun fact, it happens to be the world’s largest cruise ship. It predominantly visits three locations including the Bahamas and Bermuda, the Caribbean and North America.

A cruise on this ship for the duration of time the pair were on there would set you back around $700 to $1600 per person.

What happened to Jeff (Seth Rogen)?

One of the more bizarre and unexplained aspects of the movie is what exactly was going on with Jeff by the end of the movie. At the karaoke competition when Rachel had mended the wounds with her father, Jeff took to the stage to perform a song which was directed to the audience. Rachel turned to see it was directed to someone other than herself. Was that his wife? Was it someone else he hooked up with? We’ll never know.

We’ll be back later today with our verdict on the movie plus the general consensus with fans and critics.  Did you enjoy the movie? Let us know in the comments down below.
