His daughter Mavis (Selena Gomez) recognizes how tired and lonely her father is and takes it upon herself to both give him both a vacation and a chance at finding love.

She convinces Dracula to accompany her and the rest of their monster family on a luxury cruise so he can take a break from making everyone else’s vacations so perfect and take one himself for once. Although he’s initially reluctant, Dracula eventually agrees.
