Justin wins a essay contest where he wins a teen cruise on the S.S. Tipton. Alex at first, was not able to go because of her bad grades but when she shows up on the cruise, she's able to convince her parents to let her stay, since there are lessons on the ship. Justin tries to get a date with London Tipton, where then he disguises as "Dr. Fossil" and is able to get a date with her. Meanwhile, Alex teleports Harper onto the cruise ship and convinces her to impersonate as Alex Russo.

During Justin's date with London, London gets a text where she has to take a picture with the poor Russos. Alex enters in a Tug-A-War with Bailey Pickett where they win tickets to see Hannah Montana. When Bailey asks for Alex's name, she remembers Harper is Alex so she tells her that her name is Ashley Olsen. Soon after, Bailey gets knocked into the hot tub, while eating pizza. She starts choking on the pizza, and Alex saves Bailey's life. Moseby then asks Alex for her name, she tells him that her name is Ashley Simpson. After all of the names get mixed up, she confesses and sends Harper back home.
