And this group of people is not on the cruise ship? Or part of them were on the cruise ship? Sorry for being so pedantic, but I'm trying to work out the mild FA here...

got to ask; cruise missles involved? Hoperfully Titanic isn't either...

now that we got those out of the way; was it 'not quite a cruise' because of the length of it? because of something that happened during it? because it wasn't relaxing? because they never went to a destination? because it wasn't on a cruise ship? because part of it wasn't on a cruise ship?

did the part that happened 'someplace else' happen on another ship? happen on land? did they have to take an alternate means of travel?

now that we got those out of the way; was it 'not quite a cruise' because of the length of it? yopish because of something that happened during it? no because it wasn't relaxing? no because they never went to a destination? no because it wasn't on a cruise ship? no because part of it wasn't on a cruise ship? yopish

did the part that happened 'someplace else' happen on another ship? no happen on land? this did they have to take an alternate means of travel? yope, but you don't mean they, let's call him Joe for clarity's sake.

There is no accident involved here.
If you get stuck with the strange element of the voyage, it's relevent to explore him too.

did he end up where he thought he was going to be at the end of the cruise? Did he realize were he expected to end up was somewhere different then he wanted to be?

did the cruise itself meet all his expectations?

His profession important? was he employed on the cruise ship? was he on the ship due to a job directly? due to one indirectly?

his reason for his wanting to travel important? was he traveling on the cruise as part of a vacation or get away? was he leaving some place? was the cruise one way to a place or would it end up where it started?

time relevent? if so set in current time? current idea of a cruise?

was he inspecting the cruise ship for something? was he inspecting the cruse agency? deciding if it was a good cruise? for an entity such as newspaper/magazine to make a report?

was he employed by a company directly connected to the cruise line? by a goverment agency? by another large entity? by a small group? by a single individual?

was the part of the trip 'on land' something that can be said to have happened before the cruise? during? after? if before or after did that part start at the same place he got on/off the cruise ship?

Recap:
So, we know that a guy was on a cruise but that there's something strange about this cruise. We don't know exactly what was strange but we do know that part of his trip was on land and that's important.
We also know that he was on the cruise because of his profession though we don't yet know the profession.

A thief? a murderer? a fraudster? a terrorist? a stand-up comedian? perhaps that last but not quite any of the others. Closest to thief, however.
