Live for the moment with little worry for whether it will ever come around again
26 August 2012 | by athomedSee all my reviews

Bart's life is one big drag. Every day is the same. He's stuck in a rut. A commercial for a cruise changes all that. The Simpson family doesn't have money for a cruise, so Bart tries to raise the money himself. Then in a truly touching moment, the entire family pitches in to raise the money for this cruise.

And thus the entire Simpson family embark on a wonderful vacation. Lisa meets diverse, civic-minded children fighting this cause or that. Homer and Marge rekindle their romance upon the waves. Bart does absolutely everything there is to do in a great montage. They get halfway through the week-long cruise when Bart realizes it's all going to end; he dedicates himself to keeping this cruise afloat.

This was a really nice episode with sentimentality that wasn't overdone in the least. It's a sweet parable on taking the best things from life.
