Tom is the official cat on the cruise ship S.S. Aloha, but he'll be kicked off if the captain finds even one mouse. That one, of course, is Jerry, who sneaks on board just before sailing and is pursued relentlessly by Tom until they both run into the ship's theatre showing Texas Tom (1950), which they pause to watch part of.

Tom is ship's mascot aboard the S.S. Aloha, his duty to keep the vessel free of mice. Jerry ensures that the cat has his work cut out for him, sneaking onto the ship for a free trip to a tropical paradise.
If you've read my previous reviews of the earlier Tom and Jerry shorts, you'll know that I hate it when the cartoon's creators resort to recycling footage from older episodes to make their lives easier. Cruise Cat starts off in fine form, with Tom's attempts at getting rid of Jerry thwarted at every turn, but it eventually devolves into a lazy clip show when Tom and Jerry see one of their earlier animated shorts being screened in the ship's cinema.
Cue pointless scenes from 1950's Texas Tom that only serve to irritate those already familiar with this particular cartoon.
