Aboard the S.S. Italian Castle on its way to New York, two playwrights struggle to finish their latest musical hit as they maneuver around a jealous composer, the screen star he loves, and her lothario leading man. Aided by the most inept steward ever to tread the deck of a cruise ship, the trio must save both their show and their stars from disaster.
