Billy Crocker, a young Wall Street broker, stows away on the S.S. American, in hopes of winning the heart of his beloved Hope Harcourt. His boss, Yale graduate Elisha J. Whitney, is also on board. He plans to relax before making an important business deal in England. Hope is on her way to England to be married to Sir Evelyn Oakleigh, a stuffy, hapless British nobleman. Also stowing away are "Moonface" Martin, a gangster labeled "Public Enemy 13," and his friend Erma; the two have disguised themselves as a minister and a missionary, respectively, after stranding the ship's real chaplain back at the port.  On board, Crocker runs into his friend, Reno Sweeney, an evangelizing nightclub singer, who resolves to help Billy win over Hope. Billy simultaneously learns the true identities of Moonface and Erma, and in exchange for his silence, they join the plot to break up Hope and Evelyn.  As the show progresses, Billy has to take on a number of hilarious disguises and Hope, Evelyn, Billy, Reno, Elisha, Mrs. Harcourt, Erma, and Moonface all end up in a variety of compromising positions with members of the opposite sex.
