Let's keep score and see how many times we mention the word 'cruise' in this article!

So, UK tabloids are reporting that Tom Cruise has forked out nearly €600,000 to rent out a cruise ship in Norway for the cast and crew of 'Mission: Impossible 7'. The movie is one of a precious few productions that been allowed to resume during the pandemic.

Indeed, the reason for the cruise ship is so that the cast and crew of the movie can stay separated from the rest of the population and operate in a pod system. Production only resumed in August, having been suspended in February due to lockdown measures.

The Cruiser hired out a Hurtigruten cruise ship to house the cast and crew of 'Mission: Impossible 7', as he's determined to avoid further delays and make the release date of February 23rd, 2021. The production just wrapped up filming in London, where Cruise took in a screening of 'Tenet' last week with the cast and crew of the movie.

No plot details or trailers have been released for 'Mission: Impossible 7' as of yet, but here's hoping we'll see something pretty soon.

Keeping score at home? We mentioned the word 'cruise' a total of 7 times, including that one just there.
