Storyline

Teenage Toby Miles (Rossie Harris) is on the cruise with his grandmother, Edna Miles (Glynis Johns), and preoccupied with fear that she is in declining health. Marine life specimens are being stored in the cargo hold en route to the Oceanic Institute in Cabo San Lucas, and socially awkward Allan Bundy (Ed Begley Jr.) accidentally meets an unusual woman (Mary Crosby), while snooping around in there. Mary the ship's masseuse / manicurist (Nita Talbot) quits at the last minute, so Gopher (Fred Grandy) hires Dorrie Butterworth (Mandy Perryment), a masseuse in her own right, on the spur of the moment at boarding but doesn't have the time to tell the Captain (Gavin MacLeod), who falls for her.
