Shortly before this movie was made, the Jubilee was transferred to P & O lines of Australia and became the Pacific Sun. There is no way Luther could have sailed on the Jubilee in Christmas of '04.

This is a must see movie for the whole family for just to have a good laugh.
This movie is funny from start to finish. Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Dan Aykroyd and the rest of the cast did an exceptional job is making the whole movie goers laugh from beginning to end. This holiday comedy film was so enjoyable that my family and I would go again to see it. This picture has a humorous way of seeing how we all get engrossed into the Christmas season with decorations, presents etc. Then we soon realize what the true meaning of Christmas is suppose to be. I highly recommend it! Take the family and enjoy. Just sit back and forget about your job, troubles and have fun viewing this hilarious movie! You won't be sorry.
