USS Saint Paul (CA-73) as for the rest of the ships see below, taken from the wiki page on the movie.

 

Only one WW II vintage heavy cruiser; the USS Saint Paul (CA-73) still retained most of her wartime configuration (and as a result she stood in for a couple of unnamed cruisers during the movie), and an accompanying destroyer,USS Philip (DD-498), that took on the role of USS Cassidy were extensively filmed on. Other U.S. Navy ships that participated included the cruiser USS Boston (CA-69) (though only the forward 2/3's of the ship could be shown as she had missiles aft), destroyersUSS Braine (DD-630)USS O'Bannon (DD-450),USS Renshaw (DD-499)USS Walker (DD-517), submarine USS Capitaine (SS-336) and theattack transport USS Renville (APA-227). All of the destroyers had to have their modern (1960s) ASW gear covered over with fake gun-mounts or deck houses.

All movies where Henry Fonda plays an admiral are good.  :)

Fonda has one of my favorite lines in the film when he says, "Some wise fella once said that 'On the most exalted throne in the world we are seated on nothing but our own [edited]".  It's a small part but he carries it off brilliantly.
