I have never seen it but in the early 60s Walt Disney went to Europe on the S.S. United States .He was so impressed he came back and ordered a movie to be filmed on the U.S. I think it is called ship ahoy or something like that . It has Fred MacMurray   and his  family going to Europe. There are clips on u-tube but not of the ship. It is more than likley it is on there streaming  service . Would love to hear about it if you have seen it. B.T.Y.I drive buy the S.S. United States every week on my way to the beach.

I listed it in my list - Bon Voyage!  Came out in 1962.

Jack and Jill is the worst movie ever.

 

Thanks for your personal review.

The OP didn't ask about "good" movies.

I just offered up a couple that came to mind that no one else had referenced yet. :classic_wink:

Correct

 

Bitter Moon

Filmed in part aboard the M.T.S. Odysseus, a cruise ship of Greece's Epirotiki Line. First launched in 1961 as the Princesa Isabel, Odysseus ended her career as the Lucky Star, a casino ship based out of Singapore. She was scrapped in Alang, India in April 2008, sixteen years after her appearance in this movie.

 

Also another point in Ghost Ship the only real ship used was the Tugboat

 

Sorry about including non cruise ship movies

 

Cheers Don

Hi Don: Right on the Mark with your reply. Another Greek ship was used in the filming of the less than memorable Cuba Gooding Jr film Boat Trip, Royal Olympic’s Olympic Voyager which was designed to be the speediest cruise ship when built around 2000.

Yes, it's stretching the definitions for "movies about cruising", but of their type, hard to not be supportive of the Poster's selections.  Das Boot, in particular, was the most significant to me movie of submarine warfare that I had experienced.  It remains special.

 

If one visits the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, there is a special, extra cost pass required, for the USS Tang "experience".  I think I can guarantee you that you will leave that "experience"--not a movie--but an experience that will be profoundly moving and maybe even more appreciative of the sacrifices made by those who served during World War II.   

 

YES!  I did a tour of the USS Pompano in San Francisco.  What an incredible eye opener.

I would call the "The USS Tang Experience" very sobering.  

 

I just finished reading a book titled Fatal Dive that was lost early in WW II because of the same reason that the USS Tang was lost.  

 

I don't think the "whomevers" who were responsible for the development and approval of those defective torpedoes were ever held accountable.  

 

Maybe St. Peter did so.

How about the last scene in Sabrina (the early version with Humphrey Bogart in stead of Harrison Ford)?

I'm going to continue the Bogart theme. A surly captain, a well-worn riverboat, no amenities, but a very proper passenger. All-aboard for a river cruise on the African Queen. - 1951

Sticking with Bogart —- how about the one concerning  his ship that ran into a typhoon, leading to some disaffection among his officers on the USS Cain?

Sabrina, African Queen, Caine Mutiny. Cruise movies? No. But sometimes you have to indulge us our shortcomings.

Don’t be so quick to write off Sabrina - the ultimate scene - the denouement if you will - took place on a teak promenade deck among the deck chairs, as the ship passed lower Manhattan heading out to sea.

 

That’s pretty cruisey.

I never saw it but I assume that it takes place on  a ship.

Actually Hawn plays a rich ***** who's on her luxury yacht with her equally "I'm rich" husband.  She winds up falling overboard and getting amnesia.  She's claimed by a handyman she hired to remodel her onboard closet and then refused to pay him for it.  He says she's his wife (and mother to his 4 kids) to get paid back for the job.
