Short blusters and complains about the captain as they journey through the islands, mocking the captain's tales of "gorillas" and "pirates" of the carribean, while he tries to win back the favor of his family.

The Harvey family book themselves on a cruise which offers more than what they bargained for when they meet the eccentric captain who will take them off course to adventure in rundown areas of the Carribean in this offbeat comedy at sea.
