Entertainer Rose York (Rich Little) has been hired to perform on the cruise but has to remain home in bed, so her friend Barry Corwin (also Rich Little) impersonates her, captivating both Julie (Lauren Tewes) (who falls for Barry) and fellow passenger Radford Harcourt (Arte Johnson) (who falls for Rose) in the process. Novelties manufacturer Walter Love (Don Adams) makes both business and romantic propositions to fellow passenger Helen Williams (Audrey Meadows), whom he met at a convention five years earlier. Doc (Bernie Kopell) and Merrill (Gavin MacLeod) both vie for the affections of struggling television commercial actress Jaime Sloane (Jaime Lyn Bauer), who is so desperate to lose weight and win a lucrative assignment, that she is exercising constantly, barely eating, popping diet pills, and even displaying symptoms of anorexia.
