Now Scooby and the rest of gang will have to solve the real mystery behind the mysterious treasure or they may end up walking the plank to sink to the depths of Davy Jones’ Locker!

Verdict: Fun Filled Family Adventure

Story: We only watch these films to see where the gang end up, as they always end up in a position where there is a mystery to solve. Putting the gang on a mystery cruise only for them to ruin the trip for everyone before the real mystery begins. The case is always larger than the TV series mysteries and usually has a few more twists and turns. It really does what it needs to do and will keep the fans entertained. (7/10)
