Storyline

Country music singer and songwriter Billy Boy Bodine (Matt McCoy) cruises with his manager Cappy (Claude Akins), who tries to come between Billy and adoring admirer Arlene Cort (Leah Ayres), because Billy writes his best music when he's depressed. Shipboard neighbors Simon Ashford (Farley Granger) and Valerie Frasier (Terry Moore) are interior designers engaged in cutthroat competition to win the contract to redecorate the ship, and will stop at nothing to sabotage each other. Doc (Bernie Kopell) enjoys a visit from his fraternity brother Buzz McLaine (Roy Thinnes), who travels with his cousin Jim Dolan (Michael McGrady). But things are not what they seem.
