** The 2006 remake inverts the situation but still plays the trope straight -- the ship is brand new and is taking her [[Film/{{Titanic 1997}} maiden voyage]].

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: While helping lift the Christmas tree, Rogo can clearly be heard to mutter, "Holy fuck, it's heavy!" This was actually an ad-lib by Ernest Borgnine, and for some reason it was not only [[ThrowItIn left in the final cut]] but made it past the MPAA, who gave the film a PG rating. It's even left in for TV airings (although closed captioning gives the line as "Holy mackerel".)

** When Martin and Nonnie are exploring the ship's barber shop, a nude centerfold picture is visible (albeit upside down, natch) on one of the walls.
