Plot Overview

Stubing and his ex-wife have to face the realities of a badly resolved separation when they find themselves trapped on the same cruise. The future wife of a powerful political congressman worries that the photo she took for an erotic magazine some years back will jeopardize her husband's political career, so she tries to cover this fact from him, by hiding all the copies of the magazine that are available in the ship, until she finds the courage to confess her past to her husband. Ginny O'Brien is followed by her hard-to-commit boyfriend through all the ports where the cruise passes. However she's not going to accept a relationship without a proposal of marriage.
