Achtung Achtung! Feind in Sicht.

Alles in Stellung. Alles in Stellung.

Alle Maschinen fr den Kampf bereit.

- You're off course by two degrees.

- Yes Sir!

You've got to watch them all the time...


...otherwise they'll become sloppy.

They'll become very, very sloppy.

I think we should join the party, Captain.

Damn the passengers... see, to become a Captain,

...not a party host... take care of her.

She'll be all yours in another three days.

I will.

Check her position every 30 minutes...

...and tell the purser I will NOT be

attending the over 50s party tomorrow.

Yes Sir!

Unless you'd care to go...

...I'm told you're an

excellent conversationalist.

That depends on whom I'm talking to Sir.


Thank God it's his last trip!

- Come on everyone, let's move!

- Good evening Mrs. Marshall.

Nick, I want to dance!

I wish I was 20 years younger!

You're not Cyril,

you'll have to dance with me.

Why don't you go to bed,

you can't keep your eyes open?

Yes I can!

Another half hour Long John Silver

and you're going to bed!

That's not fair!

She's staying up, why can't I?

I'm older.

Now that's enough, both of you.

Ooh baby!

You can come with me!

Hey, great!

Now we've all had lots of booze

and what have... all must be feeling very happy?

Let me hear yah, happy?

I can't hear you, a little louder,

are you happy?

Oh, Ladies and Gentlemen,

I see our captain has joined us.

Captain, welcome.

On behalf of everybody, Captain...

...I would like to thank you

for a very smooth trip...

...especially the overland section.

Captain, how about a little bow?

Let's hear it for the Captain!

Thank you.

Gentlemen, a little music if you please.

Forty years at sea and you end up being a

straight man for a smart-ass comedian.

I wonder what sort of jokes he'll make

about me when I take command?

None darling.

Nobody ever makes jokes about you.

Am I as stuffy as that?

I wouldn't know.

I hardly ever see you out of your uniform.

Wait until tonight.

Sir... take a look a this.

It's on a collision course!

Twenty degrees port!

Can I have that please?


Is it past your bedtime?

Ben, that's greedy!

Robin, be an angel and take Ben

below and put him to bed.

Say goodnight, Ben.

Come on!

Good night mum.

Good night son.

I'm sorry!

Thank you band, thank you.

Now, Ladies and Gentlemen...

...we are coming to the

end of a very long...

...and beautiful voyage.

How about a little appreciation

for a great band...

...Mal Diamond and the Boys.

Maybe you'll get used to all of this.

I never did.

Cruising around in endless circles... ladies repeating "have

a nice day!" over and over again...

...and then having to

have dinner with them... that they can go back to Akron

or Toronto or wherever...

...and say that they ate with the Captain.

I thought daddy was the Captain?

No dummy, not till the next trip!

Good! Then I can get all the cake I want!

Ben, come back!

Whatcha doing now?

I gotta go!

You've just been!

Well I gotta go again.



It's as if it's deliberately

trying to ram us.

Full to port.


Get me the Captain.

My Husband was so anxious

to come on this cruise.

But, when God calls,

you have to go.

- Pardon?

- He died, just before we sailed.

I'm not grieving.

I mean, he had a wonderful life.

And he would have wanted

me to come on this cruise.

- Are you a religious man?

- Excuse me.

He's a wonderful man.

But he's not religious.

How many more days?

Two and a half.

Are you counting?

Now listen,

you promise you'll forget me!
