"All Aboard! Rosie's Family Cruise" is a 2006 American documentary film that follows Rosie O'Donnell and her family along with several other families on the first ever cruise specified for gay parents and their families, which was arranged and planned by Rosie O'Donnell and her life partner Kelli O'Donnell. The cruise ship set sail on July 11, 2004, and the film debuted on April 6, 2006 on the HBO network. The film was released on DVD-video on June 13, 2006. The film went on to be nominated for three Emmys.

Plot

It's the first maiden voyage of R Family Vacations, the travel company founded by Rosie and Kelli O'Donnell which specializes in gay family vacations. The cruise starts in New York, New York on July 11, 2004, and sails down along the American east coast, stopping in Key West, Florida and Nassau, Bahamas. Five hundred families attended the cruise, combined of both heterosexual and homosexual parents. Along the way, Rosie and Kelli's family, along with several other families on the cruise are interviewed, including former Hawaiian NFL star Esera Tuaolo along with his partner and their children. Comedian Judy Gold also makes appearances.

When the ship stops in the Bahamas, the cruise members are met with much backlash and protesting from the local Christian community, though interviews show that there were many locals who didn't have a problem with homosexuality. Despite this, the trip continued as normal to the end.
