The entire crew assumes Staff Captain Grimm will be the next captain of the Traumschiff. The cruise line company, however, has chosen someone else to steer the ship. Max Parger, their new captain, introduces himself to the crew. Parger’s new job appears to be anything but easy, as the ship has barely set sail when a conflict develops between him and Grimm. What follows is a turbulent, emotional, and at times dangerous first voyage for Captain Parger, by the end of which, however, he has earned everyone’s respect.
