Following an intro about what happens every week in his boring life, Bart sees a commercial for the ultimate cruise and begs his parents for a family vacation. Since they are very low on cash, Bart decides to sell everything he owns. However, he still does not have enough money. When he wakes up the next morning, he realizes that his family sees how much he wants the cruise, so they each sell one valuable item (with the exception of Homer who is devastated to find out they sold his mini pool table).
They get tickets, but learn that their area has been overbooked. But they get a new triple upgrade cabin. The ship has extreme luxuries: a water slide, rock wall, and a roller coaster and Bart is having an awesome time. At the halfway point, the ship’s guide sings a song about enjoying the rest of the cruise while they can before they go back to their normal lives. Bart, who is afraid that the rest of his life will be painfully boring, decides to make the vacation last forever by putting puts on a scene from the movie “The Pandora Strain” about a pandemic virus. He also short-circuits all contact with the mainland by pouring hot fudge on the control panel. But, as they stay at sea, the ship grows mold and the food supply runs out.
Marge and Lisa find out about Bart’s plan and the passengers leave The Simpsons stranded in Antarctica. While walking along Antartica slowly, they then find a group of penguins and the Simpsons slide down a hill, finally having fun. At the end, it shows that thanks to that, Bart lived a happy, fun life.
