Storyline

On a Christmas cruise, a senior citizen named Angelarum Dominicus (Mickey Rooney) is present in the lives of several other passengers. The crew members argue over how to decorate the ship for the holidays while Captain Stubing (Gavin MacLeod) grows impatient. Jim and Lori Markham (Donny Osmond and Maureen McCormick) are taking their first vacation in years, with him being frustrated by her workaholic tendencies that keep them apart. Sisters Regina and Bernadette (Teresa Wright and Jan Rooney) chaperone the members of the Good Shepherd Boys' Choir en route to their home in Acapulco, without knowing they are carrying thieves Charlie Dobbs (Keenan Wynn) and Henry Beemus (Henry Gibson)' stolen gold to its final destination.
