In the latest installment of Hotel Transylvania, the Prince of Darkness is lonely. He seeks help from his phone's personal assistant, but to no avail. We even see Count Dracula swipe people left on a dating application because they have "too many eyes" or he is "not into tentacles".

His daughter, Mavis, who notices her father's more than usual gloominess, suggests a perfect plan: he needs a vacation.

They end up on a cruise, but the Prince of Darkness is not thrilled. He loathes the ship and everyone on it even though Mavis tries her best to relax him. Count Dracula, who is now 545-years-old, doesn't believe he'll find love on that cruise, but all of that changes once he runs into Erika Van Helsing, the ship's captain and cruise director.

But there is more to Erika than meets the eye.
