Crikey! The Royal Navy has finally entered the nuclear age and is selling off its obsolete old frigates to the Arabs! First to go is HMS Aristotle - the secret shame of the Fleet! Under the temporary command of Bosun Dibble, the ship is a hive of vice with its crew willing to do anything to make a few quid. When they hear they will be sailing for the Mediterranean nation of Algerrocco, they see one last chance to make a few bob - by pretending their frigate is really a luxury cruise liner and selling tickets! Of course, new Captain Humphrey Fairweather RN knows nothing of the crews schemes, but with a wild bunch of passengers including Thora Hird chasing the Bosun and Shirley Eaton threatening to strip off and sunbathe, how long can he be kept in the dark?
