The Last Cruise (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Whilst many may shout ‘Too Soon’, The Last Cruise is one of the first (of many to come) documentaries to hit the screen that starts to piece together key moments of the COVID pandemic. Looking at the ill fated Diamond Princess cruise, which was anchored at the Yokohama port in Japan since February 3 2020 and saw a total of 691 cases of the deadly disease onboard.  Pieced together using passengers and crews own cell phone footage, it tells the story of a world unsure how seriously what they were facing was, where a few bad decisions (and indecision) could quickly lead to life changing moments and, for some, death.  It’s powerful stuff, made even more so by the real humans at the centre of it and the naivety of what we know now.  It won’t be an easy watch for many but for those that do it will stay with you LONG after the end credits.
