When we reached Long Beach Terminal we didn't want to disembark!! Rated 5 out of 5 by angelmema from Love the game I have all the Cruise games and love playing them over and over,but Cruise director 3 got to play it one time and now I can't get it to work.
I bought the game and now I can't play it. The problem is on there end not my mine. The game is great and I love these Cruise games,I just bought the new Park ranger 6 I have all of them.
I enjoy playing the hidden object games they help me relax and help me to concentrate and focus. Rated 5 out of 5 by dumplie from Love this game I love this game and the Park Ranger version too. The game is fun to play with just the right amount of challenge. I cannot wait for Cruise Director 4 - hope it is released soon!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 by upsysydaisy from Nope! That's why I love these Cruise Director games.
I am a big coward when it comes to large bodies of water, especially after the stories of Titanic and Jaws. Much safer with my armchair cruiser lol. The scenes are magnificently overflowing with people, scenery, in-motion outdoor background sights, beautiful ship interior. Lots and lots of stuff all over the place which makes the search for HOs an absolute challenge.
The items are small and pretty well hidden I love the challenge but it is all do-able and if you are stuck it has a very quick hint response. There are also lost items and trash to find. After the required items are found the porthole will close on the lost and the trash lid will close on the can. Click on the close porthole and you will discover silhouettes of all the lost items aboard the ship and the ones you find are filled in. I found it a smart idea to get all the lost items and trash taken care of in the very beginning But if you don't care, just continue playing.
It effects your score if you like to challenge yourself. The puzzles and games are so much fun, good variety of easy and challenge. I really enjoy the find the difference and the jigsaws.
There is a killer jigsaw in Cruise Director 3. There are always a few in this Series that give me a real test of my patience and skill. The use of real people, it adds a whole new feel and depth to the game I was surprised to see some of the people here were from the Park Ranger games, right down to the rangers themselves. If you are familiar, look for them! But I have always wondered why there were not ever "real" rangers, looks like an artist took a real person and somehow changed the features to a figure with human traits.
The locations being realistic makes it such a beautiful, interesting adventure. The cruiser's interior is unbelievably huge and stunning.
The background activity, e. Finally, the games have so much educational value with the different locations and within the puzzles, too. And the whole family can enjoy and learn. This series is excellent for the wide range of travel and sight-seeing and it is so satisfying to play something like this, rather than something that has a demented creature hiding behind something ready to scare me to death even though I do own lots of scary games!
I totally love the Park Ranger games because I miss being able to enjoy the national parks, camping, taking pictures, enjoying all the nature and wildlife.
Those were very special times! I hope more cruises and outdoor fun will be coming to us on a regular basis. I highly recommend these games to everyone, young and old, and the kids will love it! Rated 5 out of 5 by denniann2 from great game as they all are i love these games!!!
