is a Disney Channel Original Movie
from 2004, starring Hayden Panettiere
and Bill Pullman (Hayden's brother Jansen and Jennette McCurdy
also appear); despite the title and the channel, it's not about animals but rather set aboard a cruise for military families.

Maddie (Panettiere) is a teenage girl who wants her Navy father (Pullman) to give up the life of a commander and stay at home... but during the cruise, the September 11 attacks on New York City take place, impacting all on board and causing Maddie to rethink her views.
