Now look here. The Genesis, it's a pretty big ship son. So don't count your old man off just yet.
~ Harry Helmsley

The Genesis was a cruise ship that was owned by Azure Line. The ship sailed from San Francisco, California to Tokyo, Japan.


Harry Helmsley and Tony Delgatto performed on the ship as they sailed from San Francisco to Tokyo. However, when it neared the Japanese seaboard, a mega-tsunami hit the ship and capsized it, presumably killing everyone onboard.


  • In an alternate ending of the film, the Genesis was shipwrecked on a small island somewhere near southern Africa with three known survivors, Harry, Tony, and the captain of the ship. It's unknown if the ship was scrapped or repaired after the disaster.
  • The Genesis’ design is much more likely primarily based off of Royal Caribbean cruise ships.
