The Simpsons are going on a cruise vacation one that Bart doesn't want to end, as he fears his life on land is boring, so he fakes a viral pandemic on land.

!! Tropes:

* AnAesop: "Stop complaining about not having fun, and instead, actually have fun."
* DealWithTheDevil: When Bart suddenly found himself with enough money for the cruise vacation, he initially thought the Devil agreed to the deal.
* {{Irony}}: Homer was briefly reading a magazine titled "Magazine Hater".
* ShoutOut: The ending of an elderly Bart looking back on his life is based on the ending to ''{{Film/Titanic}}''.
** A DVD on the cruise ship is the JackBlack film ''[[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda Kung Fu Person]]''.
