5.0 out of 5 stars Romance On Board May 4, 2006
By Ejaz
It's interesting that during the Great Depression when almost nobody could afford to set sail on any of the great ocean liners, so many, many films of the era were set on board ships.

You had films about ships sinking. You had films about killers on boats. You had voyages around the world. And, like with this film you had films about romance onboard ships.

This is a romance film with just enough action thrown in to make guys be willing to watch it with their girlfriends.

The name sort of implies that it might be a comdedy.

It isn't.

It's a standard boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back romance.

But it works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Black and.. August 24, 2013

...white, of a time when movies were definitely made a bit differently... perhaps not so polished as I would have hoped... But consider when it was made and you give it some slack... for the most part it was just OK... not quite a waste of time

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad ... May 14, 2013
By Bozidar
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The plot was okay ... and predictable in some ways. Almost took on the flavour of being a musical ... it was quite obvious that the actors were not actually singing the music and it was dubbed in. I mean, where would one find room for a 26 piece orchestra on the deck of a sailboat?
