Honeymooner Mike Harris is eaten alive by sharks, unusual in Miami waters, despite cruise captain Quentin Taylor's attempt to shoot them. First mate Keith Murray's uniform shoe print is found near where Mike must have been pushed. His wife Gwen Creighton reports $70,000 missing from their safe- using her card which is not missing but has ship magician Barry Judd's fingerprints. The glass was drugged with tranquilizers by Gwen's daughter Mandy, 16, so she could spend time with Keith Murray, an adult lover scorned by her father. Blood traces belong to missing Rebecca McLaine, restrained but escaped, suspected carrier of aviary flu, later found in the ship's waste deck, strangled with a strap. Meanwhile FBI agent Robert Wynn investigates the Delkos, as Horatio fears to damage CSI. Written by KGF Vissers

Eric Delko: Holding Rebecca Farraday against her will, that's kidnapping.
Capt. Quentin Taylor: It was for her own safety.
Eric Delko: And if she dies as a result of her injuries, that constitutes murder.
Capt. Quentin Taylor: Dies? From a small cut?
Eric Delko: Or the bird flu.
Capt. Quentin Taylor: Bird flu?
Eric Delko: Yeah, so you're gonna deny that, too?
Capt. Quentin Taylor: This is getting ridiculous.
Eric Delko: So you are lying. We have charts and a statement from the doctor.

Ship Of Fools And Other Undesirables
26 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everyone's worst nightmare in the ocean: being attacked by sharks.

That's what happens to some guy who is heard yelling for help, treading water next to a big cruise ship. He gets the attention of sunbathers, including his wife, and the captain. The latter fires three shots in the water, trying to scare away the sharks but it's not enough. The sharks eat him.

Since the death occurred within three miles of Miami shoreline, the local police - "Det. Frank Tripp (Rex Linn) and CSI's "Lt. Horatio Caine" (David Caruso) investigate on-board ship. They quickly see a little blood on the side of the boat where the man fell in and what what looks like scuffle marks from shoes. This is not an accident: someone pushed him over the railing.

It also turns out he was drugged prior to his "accident" and was robbed of $70,000, too. Suspects range from the wife-of-three days, to her step-daughter, to some of the ship's personnel from the captain on down. There are kinds of little stories in this episode, and everyone on this ship from crew to passengers is devoid of morals. (This is a true "Ship Of Fools.")

We also have a possible bird flu epidemic and, in three sidebars (1) someone is out to destroy the CSI lab, spying on them looking to shut them down; (2) the continuing soap opera of CSI worker Natalia and her relationship to former boyfriend Eric Delko and now Ryan Wolfe, and (3) in a real shocker, Horatio tells Marisol that, yes indeed, he would be willing to marry her!

Lots of dramatics, obviously, in this episode.
