Cruiser Crossing the Rainbow is the first mission of Rainbow Ride in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. The mission's objective is to reach the Rainbow Cruiser.


Rainbow Ride Star 1
Part of the rainbow "track" to get to the Rainbow Cruiser

Once the player reaches the four spinning platforms, they need to take the magic carpet to the right. After passing the obstacles on its path, the player needs to take the next carpet on the left before the one they are on falls. Remaining on that carpet and passing the spinning platform takes the player to the Rainbow Cruiser. The Power Star is located on the bow of the ship.

In the DS version, the Star is instead moved farther down towards the very end of the bowsprit, and the wind is too strong for anyone to collect the Star. In order to get it, Wario must obtain a Power Flower that he can use to bypass the wind more easily. He can then get the Star at the very end. However, Luigi can backward-somersault from a carpet to get to the Star, and Mario can grab the Power Flower and float to it. Yoshi can scoot up to reach the Star by running and sticking out his tongue alternately on the bowsprit.
