Trivia:
There were problems with the exploding cake scene, which caused several re-takes to be done. Actor Lance Percival, who portrayed the ship's cook Wilfred Haines, once said of this: "They were trying to get the cake to blow up in my face. It was done with a pressure pump underneath with the cake mixture sitting on top of an air pipe. When they pressed a button the mixture was to shoot all over my face. However, every time I leaned over to 'smell the aroma' just before it exploded, I blinked as it actually shot up i.e. I knew it was coming! Therefore it took nine takes to get a scene that lasts ten seconds - unheard of in a Carry On".See more »

Boom mic visible: At the beginning of the film, a clear shadow of the boom microphone can be seen on the chef's hat as he first walks into the scene.See more »
Quotes:
Doctor:[With a very bad Spanish accent] Ole, señor!
Marjoribanks:Oh, hello Binn.
Doctor:No, señor. I am the famous Torero from Madrid.
Marjoribanks:You look exactly like our medical officer, Dr Binn.
Doctor:No, Señor. This afternoon I fight 15 bulls.
Marjoribanks:That's an awful lot of bull.
Doctor:Well, my father he breeds the famous fighting bulls, you know. Every year, 50,000 bulls he sends off by ship to South America.
Marjoribanks:50,000 bulls?
Doctor:Si, si. Also every year, 20,000 more he ships off to France.
Marjoribanks:That's 70,000 bulls.

Several new faces, 17 November 2014
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Carry On Cruising finds Sid James as captain of a cruise ship and as he sees it a right good captain too. The secret of his success is that he works with the same people all the time. But during muster he notices several new faces. As he hopes to get command of a transatlantic ship James knows that his chances for promotion ride with the success of the current voyage.

If you had such people as first officer Kenneth Williams, doctor Kenneth Connor and most of all a seasick cook in Lance Percival you'd be concerned too. As for the newbies there all in fear and nervous of their captain.

Adding to the fun are romance hungry ladies Liz Fraser, Dilys Laye and senior citizen Esma Cannon all target other passengers and some crew members. Cannon is really quite good, that old lady like Thelma Ritter in Pillow Talk can drink anyone under. Laye herself gets completely frazzled herself.

Not quite as good as some of the Carry On series, but the troupe does carry on valiantly.
