Our Score
The first in colour and the last written by Norman Hudis, this Carry On is the most charming in the series. Set aboard the SS Happy Wanderer, it charts the course of captain Sid James's tenth anniversary cruise, during which the members of his new crew seek to find their sea legs. Kenneth Connor enjoys one of his best outings as the nervous ship's doctor and Lance Percival has fun as the cook-it-and-see chef. However, the star of the show is Esma Cannon, whose table tennis game with Kenneth Williams and awesome drinking spree are the pick of some very funny moments.


The captain of a cruise ship bound for the Mediterranean is less than impressed when five of his regular shipmates are replaced at the last minute. Despite their best efforts to earn his respect and an eagerness to please, the new recruits seem doomed to cause chaos whatever they do. Comedy, starring Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Liz Fraser and Kenneth Connor.
