On the sea of 15 years ago, the ship got sunk down by hitting the iceburg. During this accident, a murder was committed.
All the sailors escaped, except the seaman who found captain's body..
A half month ago, Yashiro got into a car accident.
In the present, Conan and the gang are taking a long needed vacation aboard a luxury liner called St. Aphrodite, Which was paid for by Sonoko. Earlier an established ship architect was found in his car on the bottom of a cliff. It is determined he died from a heart attack.
The kids decide to make a bracelet made of shells for Ran. While preparing to eat dinner on the cruise ship, Professor Agasa shows Conan a new invention he made which were Cuff Link Speakers. Kogoro takes the cuff link speakers away from Conan and puts it on his suit without knowing they were speakers, saying a "dandy" man like himself should wear them.
Still waiting, Conan takes off his glasses to clean them and drops them because he was bumped by scriptwriter named Hironari Kusaka, who notices Kogoro Mouri and begins to talk to him. He also introduces to Kogoro to Minako Akiyoshi (the lead designer of the design team for the ship). Hideto Yashiro was Takae's husband.
The next day, the Detective Boys, Ran, and Sonoko decide to play hide and seek on the cruise ship. The kids sneakily put the bracelet in Ran's pocket, Sonoko and Haibara get picked to be it. Conan forgets about the game while shooting a volley ball at a wall. Therefore, Conan is found easily. Sonoko and Haibara find the rest of the kids could not find Ran.
Meanwhile, Kusaka is on the phone with Akiyoshi. Kusaka tells her that he will read his new script to her and not for her to interrupt him. He plays a tape recorder near the phone, puts on a windbreaker, and exits his room. He sneaks into the CEO's room and kills her.
Earlier, CEO's father (Entaro Yashiro) gets a note saying, "I know the secret of 15 years ago. At 10:15 AM, come to the basement marina."
While Sonoko is in the basement looking for Ran, she is attack by an unknown assailant.
Later at the same basement marina, Kusaka attacks Entaro.
Kusaka knocks him out thinking he killed him and opens the basement door leading to the ocean. Right when Kusaka is about to throw him out, he comes too and they struggle. It is showed after that Entaro gets kicked out into the ocean.
Meanwhile, Sonoko comes too and realizes she is in a box and is very cold. Using a Detective Boys Badge she was given by one of the kids she crys for help. Conan trys to locate her using his glasses but it seems it was broken from when Kusaka bumped into him. They find her after in the mortuary and get her to the medics.
Inspector Megure, CSI Officer Tome, Takagi, and Shiratori get on a helicopter and land on the cruise ship to investigate the murder of the CEO and the dissapearance of Entaro. They question Kusaka (the main suspect) but it seems he has an alibi as he was on the phone with Akiyoshi. Soon after Conan goes into Kusaka's room and acts like a child. He sees a tape recorder but it has nothing on it (it was erased). The police soon figure out that the death of the Established Ship archect is linked to these cases.
Later that day there is a ball party. During that party, the people start to panic because the murderer hasn't been caught. Kogoro soon tells everyone that the murderer is Minako Akiyoshi. Knowing Kogoro is wrong, Conan uses the Voice-Changing Bowtie to use Agasa's voice while Agasa mimics with his lips. Conan says that Kusaka is the murderer.
Kusaka says he will detonate bombs if someone moves. He tells his story and runs away onto a motor boat. Conan chases him and gets into the other one but it seems that the kids get on too. Conan soon uses his tranquilizer and makes Kusaka asleep. A bomb goes off in the ship so everyone evacuates from the ship. Ran stays behind quickly to try and grab the bracelet the kids made her where she left in her hiding spot. As she is in the hiding spot she hits her head and gets knocked out.
