The passengers and crew of a Mediterranean cruise ship dress up or throw up, play deck games or power games, get drunk or misunderstood, and fall in love or out of deckchairs.[2]


The utterly professional Captain Wellington Crowther (Sid James) is a man who knows exactly what he's doing. Crowther's been in charge of the luxury liner Happy Wanderer for ten years, during which time he has made sure everything is efficient, orderly and shipshape. [3]

The SS Happy Wanderer never went to sea. It was a full scale replica of a cruise-liner, complete with cabins, swimming pools, bars and deck games, designed by Art Director Carmen Dillon, and constructed at Pinewood by studio craftsmen.[2]
