The innuendos continue as the Carry On crew takes to the seas in the first of the historical costume parodies tackled by the team. Alas, some regulars are missing, making this one of the less memorable productions in the series. Bernard Cribbins in the lead role doesn't carry the same clout as Sid James at his distastefully smutty best, but longtime Carry On director Gerald Thomas manages to keep the fun shipshape and Bristol fashion, so it's still a must for die-hard fans.

Plot Summary

Comedy on the high seas, starring Bernard Cribbins and Kenneth Williams. Naval college graduate Albert Poop-Decker is among the motley crew of the good ship Venus which, under the uncertain guidance of Captain Fearless, sets off for Spanish waters in search of glory. But there are soon mutinous rumblings aboard ship.
