Eve Springer (Vera Miles) is on board with her two daughters, Eleanor (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Patty (Dana Plato). Eleanor doesn't like fast romances because she got burned in one, years ago, and claims it ruined her life. So she is now overprotecting her younger sister Patty and trying to throw cold water on Patty's shipboard fling with Peter Barkan (Christopher Knight). Merrill's (Gavin MacLeod) friend's niece, Kim Carlisle (Michelle Johnson), is an energetic intern rotating through the different jobs on the ship, but she is failing in all of them.
