Maritime Murder Mystery

Write a detective story about a murder that takes place during a transatlantic cruise.

The isolation of the ship creates the perfect locked-room mystery, where you have a limited number of suspects and no opportunity for the killer to have fled. What was the motive? How will the detective, also a passenger on the ship, solve the murder before they reach their destination? This prompt offers an opportunity to explore themes of isolation, desperation, and the instincts that emerge when civilization is far away.
