Carry on Cruising

Trivia: The first Carry On filmed in colour.

Trivia: Charles Hawtrey was intending to play the role of Wilfred Haines, but quit after a dispute with producer Peter Rogers over billing. This was the only "Carry On" film during his 14-year association with the series that Hawtrey did not appear in.

Trivia: The "SS Happy Wanderer" you see in this film never went to sea. It was a full-scale replica of a cruise-liner, complete with cabins, swimming pools, bars and deck games, designed by art director Carmen Dillon and constructed at Pinewood by studio craftsmen.

Trivia: The role of Flo Castle was originally intended for Carry On regular Joan Sims.
