Storyline

Corporate bigwig workaholic John Stockton (Cesar Romero) meets charming but slightly evasive Marcy Banes (Jane Wyatt) on the cruise, without realizing that she is the switchboard operator in his office building. Big-time advertising agency executive Janet Thompson (Katherine Moffat) takes the cruise and meets her friend Gopher (Fred Grandy), who adamantly insists that people call him Burl, but winds up alienating all his friends on the crew, in the process. Newly-elected Mayor Frances Hardy (Shelley Fabares) is on the cruise with her campaign manager Barry Singer (David Hedison), but falls for Phil Haines (Robert Fuller), the city council president whom she beat for the elected office.
