It's cruise time! Lloyd has been given orders to relax and enjoy some time off, which he takes as serious as any other assignment. Yor is employed as the Thorn Princess as a bodyguard for a woman and her infant son who are trying to escape the underworld of Ostania. There are tens of assassins on board trying to get to Yor's charges, and she has to constantly fend off attacks while not blowing anyone's cover. Anya and Lloyd explore the ship, and the super-spy tries not to think about why there are so many hidden cameras and listening devices all over the ship. He and Anya enjoy some good food and shopping while Anya tries to steer him clear of Yor at all times.
Every volume in this series ups the ante in hilarity and high-anxiety situations. Anya is a wonderful little accomplice for her parents' double lives. We finally get to see Yor in full assassin action, and she lives up to the hype of all the volumes before this one. In contrast, Lloyd is really terrible at relaxing and not being a spy for a few moments. When he an Anya go shopping, he takes that to the Nth degree just like he does everything in his life, which really shows how he's forgotten or never had a normal life.
