Feisty, fast-talking P.R. executive Elaine Zimmerman and her
best friends Jackie Gault and Pat Kovecky have taken their
annual vacations together ever since they first met in the
courthouse getting their respective divorces. Together,
they've been everywhere and done it all, from herbal
wrapping to white-water rafting to running with the wolves
at some New Age place in the Catskills. This year, Jackie
and Pat have talked the land-locked Elaine into a seven-day
cruise aboard the spectacular megaship, the Princess
Charming. It isn't her idea of a good time - especially when
her luggage is mislaid and she's forced to resort to the
ship boutique's tacky version of cruisewear. It's a chip on
her shoulder Elaine's proud of, until it's knocked off by a
surge of romantic electricity the first night at sea when
she's seated next to Sam Peck, (a cross between John F.
Kennedy, Jr. and a Greek god).
