The monster family takes a break from their stressful lives running the hotel. Mavis Dracula buys her family tickets for a luxurious monsters only cruise. Dracula takes a vacation from providing others with vacations. It’s all smooth sailing as the family enjoys themselves and all the fun, exciting, and interesting attractions the cruise has to offer. Monster volleyball, fun exotic trips, and moon tanning is all on the schedule. The plan goes awry when Dracula meets the ships captain. Ericka is a sweet, kind, powerful woman but she holds a secret that could ruin the Dracula family. When Dracula falls in love with her Mavis investigates into her with a bad feeling that something about her isn’t right.

Count Dracula is the protagonist (or main character) of the Hotel Transylvania series. The is the owner and founder of Hotel Transylvania. He was the husband of the deceased Martha, and the father of Mavis. Mavis is the vampire daughter of Martha and Dracula. In the first film she meets Jonathan, a human who stumbles upon the hotel. Later on, they get married and Mavis gives birth to their son, Dennis. She is a busy worker who still tries to make time for family and friends. Jonathan Loughran is Mavis’ husband and Dennis’ father. Jonathan is easy going, fun loving, and adventurous.

I think that this is a cute movie for young children, but it also may be a little too complex for anyone under the age of 6. I think that the first two movies in the

series were much better. I found the main idea of the movie quite boring. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the acting, direction, or the production, I just simply found the writing itself boring.

Not as good nor funny as the previous one. The plot isn’t that great. Maybe it’s for TV network but not for big screen.

The first movie had a clear message and was well-executed. The sequel kind of lost its way. This third installment just rehashes the message of the first movie less effectively on a boat cruise. Children who want more of the same will like this but any adult who has seen the films Speed and Speed II will know just changing the setting isn't sufficient.

Many animated features are funny for children and adults. This is not one of them. Children might like it, but there was nothing interesting for adults.

This movie was OK. The franchise has lost it's freshness. Everything here seemed very predictable and threadbare. Count Dracula and his family going for a cruise could have been funny, but truthfully not very much happens. There were lots of long filler scenes, with people dancing for example. The plotline is very thin and not very compelling, so the whole movie is padded with very repetitive jokes. It wasn't horrible, but overall the whole thing was just bland. Children who like this movie series may find it enjoyable, but for me it was pretty formulaic and "meh".

Let's teach ours kids that evil is good, and good is evil. This movie was very funny, but it teaches us that monsters are good and humans are bad. Not recommended.

Fun third film where Dracula and the family leave on a cruise . He encounters a familiar foe which leads to a surprising conclusion about love and inclusion.
