Eager to keep his mischievous son Danny occupied, the captain assigns him the assistantship to the ship's photographer, which is right up his alley if only it can be made interesting. Tristan Reedy and Juliette Titlebaum, a young couple about to marry, booked the cruise to establish a sexual reference base by studying the mating of humans just as anthropologists would do with any other species, namely doing it with attractive crew members, as if they had no emotional baggage, but of course nature has its jealous way. Chief Purser Will Sanders is elated to spend some time in her cabin with incognito singer Johari Mayfield. The photographer points out to Danny the paparazzi-prices for photos of incognito stars, and Paolo vents Will has a mystery woman... The captain thinks his teenage boy needs to have 'the talk' but doesn't quite feel up to it. Buddy Pomus is drawn to and disgusted by his ex (twice!), who seems to have blown it with her current partner Scott.
