It's a horror movie where a green creature is being smuggled on a cruise ship. I believe that it was archeologists smuggling the creature. I can't remember if they knew what they were smuggling or not. It ends with the cruise ship sinking. It seemed fairly old, could be 70s or 80s and no it's not The Creature From The Black Lagoon, I can remember that much. It could be a TV movie since that's how I saw it. Hope someone can help!

(Puzzling: how come that 90% of the requests for help to find a movie title are for horror movies?)

The horror genre is really over saturated, so it can be hard to find what you are looking for. That's only my guess.

Another option: the fright trauma alters the memory capacity :)

Could be that as well, but I remember the movie didn't frighten me at all. That's just my experience though. There's few movies that do scare me.

Maybe this one (CHUPACABRA TERROR)? Seems to be a direct-to-video, year 2005, so maybe not the one you're remembering. But the creature does appear to be green on the DVD box . . .

Addendum to my posting above  . . . This was apparently also shown on the SyFy channel in 2005, under the title CHUPACABRA TERROR: DARK SEAS, which was probably where you saw it. This more detailed plot description matches your account of the ending:

And the DVD is for sale from a number of websites, under $10.
