Goofs

Vampires are undead and as such don't need air to breathe (as they no longer draw breath). The scuba gear would be unnecessary. Also children under the age of 16 are not permitted to scuba dive and those over the age of 16 need a scuba qualification. See more »

Predictable but Very Funny
30 September 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When the lonely Count Dracula goes on vacation with Mavis, his family and monster friends on the cruise ship Legacy, he immediately falls in love with the human Captain Ericka. However the mysterious woman has a secret that may jeopardize Dracula, his family and the other monsters. Who is Captain Ericka?

"Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation" is another funny animation of this successful franchise. This time with a predictable romance between Dracula and a woman. In-between, lots of confusions and funny situations with the monsters. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Hotel Transilvânia 3: Férias Monstruosas!" ("Hotel Transylvania 3: Monstrous Vacation")
