Very linear. Most of the time, there's only one correct option. Even if you choose the 'wrong' choice, there's basically no explanation why it's game over.
Example: I chose to unpack, because I'll be on the cruise for a week (as explained). "You stay in your room and do nothing. You lose."
I'm sorry I just carelessy threw my luggage on my bed and not go to dinner. I guess Unpacking bags takes longer than 5-10 minutes. This isn't the only time a 'game over' is presented poorly. It happens with every choice exempt for a special few.
