Death Cruise is a 1974 American made-for-television mystery film starring Richard Long, Polly Bergen, Edward Albert, Kate Jackson, Celeste Holm, Tom Bosley, Michael Constantine and Cesare Danova. It was directed by Ralph Senensky and aired as the ABC Movie of the Week on October 30, 1974.[1]


The Carters (Richard Long, Polly Bergen) and two other couples win tickets to a luxury Caribbean cruise. When each of the winners start turning up dead, it soon becomes apparent that the contest was just a trick to begin a killing game. It is up to the ship's doctor, Doctor Burke (Michael Constantine) to figure out what the connection between all these individuals are before more bodies start to turn up.



Much of the film was shot aboard the RMS Queen Mary in Long Beach, California.[2]
