An IRS agent (Phyllis Diller) comes on board to audit Stubing. Now she's so uptight, Julie tells the Captain to try and get her to loosen up, which leads to a misunderstanding which is worse than being audited. A female celebrity (Joyce DeWitt) comes on board and a tabloid reporter (Ray Buktenica) follows her because he thinks she's meeting someone, possibly a secret lover. A newlywed (Jennifer Salt), on her honeymoon, discovers her ex (Lyle Waggoner) is on the cruise and is trying to get her back. Written by
