The First Wave (2021)
Following one of the hardest hit hospitals during the Covid pandemic, it brings an insight into the Covid-19 crisis, much like Hell of a Cruise.
76 Days (2020)
A compelling watch, it, like the above, focuses on the Covid-19 pandemic. And like the majority of Hell of a Cruise, the main focus occurs during the pandemic’s early days, which is when most of us were wondering what the hell was going on.
The Staircase (2004)
A bit of a throwback now and not one to be confused with the HBO Max series. However, it does cover the same story. At the time, it featured never before seen footage surrounding the mysterious death of Kathleen Peterson. And if it’s a documentary that really gets you thinking that you would like to watch, this one is the one to seek out.
Billion Pound Cruise (2021)
A very different tone from the previous suggestions. This is because rather than report on a tragic event, the documentary goes behind the scenes of a cruise and gives the audience insight into the daily lives of those that work on the ship.
Cruisin with Jane McDonald (2017)
It’s not as grim or dark as Hell of a Cruise. Nor is it a film, instead a British TV show. It’s camp, fun, and explores many different countries. It’s somewhat iconic as a gay meme, but it’s still worth a watch. Believe me, it is much better than any of you would think. And if you don’t have time to watch the full show, just check out some of the YouTube clips.
