Publisher's Summary

Humanity needed a hero. It got a karaoke DJ.

Leo MacGavin is not the brightest specimen of humanity, but when he inadvertently rescues a flirty alien heiress, he’s promoted from second-rate lounge entertainer to captain of the galaxy’s most sophisticated cruise ship.

Before he can flee in terror, a human-hating executive gives Leo an ultimatum: complete the vessel’s maiden voyage or mankind’s last colony will be turned into a sewage dump. To make matters worse, a militant cyborg is undermining his authority, a giant spider is terrifying the passengers, and a sentient plant keeps stealing all the beer.

If Leo ever wants to see his home again, he’ll have to keep the guests happy through seven days of onboard antics and madcap shore excursions. As strange malfunctions tear the ship apart, can he hold his rag-tag crew together, or will he flush the last bastion of humanity down the crapper?

The Maiden Voyage is a hilarious sci-fi comedy adventure. It includes a bonus story, "Language Barrier".

Interesting audio book .

I found the story a bit slow at first . After half way through it got better . I’d listen to the rest of the series , if it became available .

Boring at best

I can't give it zero stars or I would. Save your time and money, look elsewhere for entertainment. I kept giving it a few more chapters to see if it was just a rough start. It wasn't. This book was so bad that I really do think I could do better. If this can get published, anything can. I understand that there is actually a series. Hey, I can write a series too. Can I get published?

Absolutely ridiculous - I love it!

This book got me some weird looks on the bus, I must have been laughing too loudly.
The book is a great mix of dry British humour and American slapstick.
It's not all laughs though, the plot is quite gripping and by far the best character building i've seen in a while.
