The Virgin Islands serve as a backdrop for the Grand Prix Wine-Tasting Competition, whose winner receives a $25,000 prize. Judge Alan Curtis starts a shipboard fling with Marion Blake, without getting to know her well. Julie's Aunt Sylvia Duvall is on the cruise with her friend Betsy Boucher.

Annie and Kevin Butler obtain a quickie divorce each year because filing their income tax as a married couple puts them in a higher tax bracket. This is their sixth planned divorce, and this time her impulsive high school classmate Jeff Thatcher is on board as one of the judges in the wine competition. Vicki impatiently waits to receive an autographed photo of Los Angeles Rams quarterback ... Written by Maisie Fleckum
