The Happiest Guy in the World

2018 | Documentary | Short Film


Twenty years on a cruise ship

What kind of person takes a cruise not for a week or a month — but for the rest of his life? Mario Salcedo took his first cruise almost twenty years ago-and never stopped.

For nearly two decades, Mario had been living out of his suitcase, traveling extensively for his corporate job as the director of international finance at a multinational corporation. He spent more time in and out of hotel rooms scattered across Latin America than he did at his home in Miami. After working nonstop for nearly 21 years, Mario — burned out — decided it was time to pursue a lifelong goal: to travel around the world, without leaving home. In 1997, he quit his job, packed an even bigger suitcase and quietly disappeared from the lives of his friends and family to pursue a new life on the open water.

Directors: Lance Oppenheim
