Ship curries all over the place (7)
I believe the answer is:
'ship' is the definition.
(cruiser is a kind of ship)
'curries all over the place' is the wordplay.
'all over the place' is an anagram indicator.
'curries' anagrammed gives 'CRUISER'.
(Other definitions for cruiser that I've seen before include "Old warship" , "Warship - pleasure boat - boxing weight" , "Leisure yacht; warship" , "Type of warship" , "Ship" .)
