What movies can you think of that are mostly or entirely set on a cruise ship? I can only think of one, "The Poseidon Adventure" and it's modern re-make, "Poseidon". Would not be a good movie to watch right befor depature, haha.

I liked Out to Sea with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. It was set on the Westerdam. Funny movie in my opinion.

All I can think of is Speed 2 and that wonderful weepy with Cary Grant where they meet on a cruise... An Affair to Remember..... oooooh and the dreadful remake of the Parent Trap where they marry on a Cruise ship......

 

Actually you said mostly set...... tut.... must learn to read the question.....

 

EDIT : There's a Carry On film set on a cruise ship....... can't remember which one...... Sid James plays the Captain......

DOUBLE EDIT : Looked it up.... Carry On Cruising..... d'oh

Does anyone know the name of the cruise ship they were on during the filming of Boat Trip with Cuba Gooding Jr.? It says "Olympic Voyager" on the back of the ship but I can't find anything about a ship of that name. Just curious. BTW - terrible movie!!!!

 

Thanks, AJ

Wonderful film- one of my favourites. Claude Rains played the psychiatrist- great actor. Bette Davis was fantastic too- and the outfits she wore on the ship - can you just imagine one of those enormous hats nowadays !! a different era of travel altogether.

I just did a google search for Olympic Voyager. There was, indeed, a ship by that name. It was built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg and delivered to Royal Olympic Cruises in 2000.

 

Here's a link to the specs for the ship: http://www.allgreecetravel.com/tours-cruises/olympia_voyager.asp

 

After Royal Olympia Cruises folded in 2004 (the name had to be changed as the Olympic Committee had an issue with them using the Olympic name) the ship became the Costa Voyager...

Not a movie---but still one of my favorite pre-cruise things to watch: I Love Lucy!!! There is a series of about 4 or 5 episodes that are simply hilarious!! Getting the passports, missing the boat, boarding the boat--every episode just brings a smile:) remembering them.

I will have a look for them, are you in US, bet we can't get them in UK, used to love I love Lucy when I was younger, can't remember any on a ship though .
