Albert Lai (Andy Lau) is the only child of Hong Kong's richest tycoon. Albert brings Kathy (Qu Ying), a waitress introduced to him by his mother (Susan Tse), onto a cruise ship, where on the first date night, he receives the approval of Kathy and gets engaged. This is already Albert's eighth engagement since love always comes and goes very quick for him, and he would always break an engagement whenever he loses the feeling of novelty in each relationship.

Albert becomes increasingly fond of Kathy's ability to cope decently. It turns out Kathy has been secretly struggling to study the topic of the second day of the cruise, making her feel extremely exhausted. At this time, Kathy meets Timothy (Huang Lei), a waiter on the ship, who came from a same background as her. Kathy feels unrestrained while being with Timothy, and thus, her heart starts to shift.

However, Albert is unwilling to give up and he is confident that he will be able to win Kathy back with his charm. At this time, Sandy (Hikari Ishida) appears around Timothy and she views Albert as an enemy. Compared to Albert, Sandy is far more acerbic and a much bigger spender. However, Albert gradually discovers that while Sandy is not bickering with him, he feels empty and lonely, a feeling that he has never had. Before, nobody had dared to point out Albert's shortcomings, only Sandy dared to point them out publicly. As he comes in contact with Sandy more, he becomes attracted to her personality.

  • Production

    In 2010, when Andy Lau appeared on the Taiwanese talk show Kangxi Lai Le, he revealed that this film left him with some regrets. He stated that while he was paid over HK$10 million, when he went aboard the cruise ship to film at the Caribbean Sea, after the film company paid him his salary, they did not have any money to hire crew members and extra actors, and thus, Lau was very busy on set having to take care of other crew work.

    Speaking of how he felt cheated when he got on board, Lau stated,

    On set, Lau had to pave the rails for the cameras to move and worked as set coordinator and inviting cruise passengers to work as extras.

    Critical

    Love HK Film gave the film a negative review: "Designed solely to make money during the Lunar New Year, this fluffy romantic comedy rests solely on Lau’s able shoulders. Sadly, the filmmakers didn’t give him a proper character."

    Box office

    The film grossed HK $8,889,770 at the Hong Kong box office during its theatrical run from 13 February to 19 March 1999 in Hong Kong.
