Storyline

SEptember, 2001. On its last leg homeward, from Pearl Harbour (Hawaii) to San Diego, the USS Constellation hosts a jolly 'tiger cruise' for USNavy, Marines and USNAF relatives, mainly minors ('Navy brats'). Attitudes and emotions vary from simple joy to open frustration, the worst brat being XO commander Gary Dolan's daughter Maddie, who wants him to refuse a promotion to command for a shore job. Then the news of the WCC terror crisis changes everything, as the crew is recalled to war footing. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Tiger Cruise is one of the only two DCOMs to bear a Viewer Discretion warning at the beginning of the film. However, it encourages family viewing so that the family watching it could talk about the movie and the events of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The other such movie was Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior (2006). See more »

Goofs

The movie takes place on the USS Constellation CV-64. During the flight show, the number shows, "68." That number belongs to the USS Nimitz. See more »

One of the better Disney TV movies

Where Disney movies have been cheesy in the past, Tiger Cruise is definitely an exception. It follows a Navy Brat's journey on a "Tiger Cruise" only days before 9/11.

I think this film really captures the emotion of a lot of people who were involved in this atrocity, and really helps people understand how hard people had to work to keep themselves calm.

It was a stunning performance by Hayden Panettiere who is a star in her own right, and her brothers acting was on par to hers. I would like this film to be shown on other Disney Channels, ie Disney Channel UK, as I reckon it would help people understand 9/11 a lot better. A brilliant, wonderful, and touching movie.
