After "The Poseidon Adventure", in which the ship got flipped over by a tidal wave, the ship drifts bottom-up in the sea. While the passengers are still on board waiting to be rescued, two rivaling salvage parties enter the ship on search for money, gold and a small amount of plutonium.Written by

A tiger loose on the ship, and an underwater volcano erupting and destroying the ship in the film's climax, were also in various versions of the script. See more »
Only 50 metres (approximately) of the hull of the Poseidon remains above water when boarded by the salvage/medical team because the front of the ship is sinking lower and lower into the water. Yet all the decks inside the ship are horizontal. For the decks to be horizontal, the ship would have to be sitting level in the water. See more »
I haven't seen a film try to be so serious, yet I mistook it for a comedy. The performances were hilarious, the dialogue was awful, and for the life of me, I don't remember the music, so THAT must have been really bad!! LOL. Another one of those great Irwin Allen films that are filled with hammy actors and bad special effects--but what a fun time to watch!!
