You’ve heard all about sex parties. Frankly, you might be even a little tired of hearing about sex parties. They exist. WE GET IT. But what about sex parties at sea? Well, now we’ve gone and just about blown your mind.
Let us paint you a semi-pornographic (to just regularly pornographic) picture: sailing the high seas aboard a luxury ocean liner, whilst carefree half-naked mermaids frolic on deck. Elsewhere, curious couples are engaging in educational seminars on best practices for new sexual positions. And in tucked away, secretive corners other couples and strangers are taking a more hands-on approach to learning — with themselves, with each other, and a variety of combos in between.
These are sexy cruises — full, sailing itineraries to glorious destinations, with lots and lots of onboard, naked activities. There’s a pleasure cruise, and then there’s a pleasure cruise. If you’ve tried all the sex parties in/on the land, you probably can do with a change of scenery. Sexy cruises aren’t for everyone, but they are, evidently, for like, thousands of people every year. And you could easily be one of them.
Who offers sex and swingers’ cruises?
Bliss Cruises and Couples Cruise are among the more popular offerings, while Temptation is slated to launch its all-inclusive Caribbean Cruise in February 2020. Some cruises are clothing-optional, while others are more geared toward partner swapping. You don’t have to be a swinger to partake in such a cruise; a lot of people go simply for the open-minded atmosphere.
Swinger-specialized travel agents — like TheSwingerCruise.com, Topless Travel (the in-house travel agency for dating site Swing Life Style), Dream Pleasure Tours and Erotic Adult Travel — can help guide you toward your dream vacation.
Who goes on swingers’ cruises?
People flock to these types of cruises for every reason under the sun: to swing, have sexy one-on-one time with a significant other and to explore wild ideas in a safe, judgment-free environment. They come from all ages, backgrounds and body types, from all around the world. You’ll find singles, couples and organized groups, as well as people you wouldn’t necessarily expect: doctors, politicians, oil executives and PTA moms.
Onboard, it’s OK to decline any unwanted propositions with a simple, “Thanks, but no thanks.” No one will think twice about it. No means no, and it doesn’t require a whole lot of conversation to halt an advance. No apologies are necessary; just take it as a compliment.
What kind of events take place during sex cruises?
A sex/swingers’ cruise isn’t all about having sex. There’s a heavy emphasis on programmed entertainment and always something fun to do. During the day, there are contests and seminars, such as tantric workshops and sex trivia competitions.
Late night, there are themed fantasy parties and more kink-centric activities. Also, most cruises have a playroom, where couples, single women and invited men can explore each other. The goal is to offer a sensual but also safe space where everyone feels comfortable.
Cruise Sex – The Sexiest Ocean Cruises
Bliss offers adults-only (um, we hope so) full-ship charters. So don’t worry about winding up naked on the buffet line in front of fully clothed passengers who are purely there to see St. Martin. Everyone on a Bliss Cruise is there for the same reason. Bliss Cruise is designed for every level of “the lifestyle,” which is basically the overarching semi-secret code for “swingers.” Whether you’re swapping partners, acting as a guest star, meeting someone new, or testing your voyeur skills, you’re welcome on a Bliss Cruise, along with hundreds (yes, HUNDREDS) of other like-minded and/or curious cruisers.
For what we are assuming are your interests and needs, you’d want to register for Bliss’ spring sailing. (Bliss does two sailings: one in the spring and one in the fall.) The spring sailing’s age demographic goes down by 11 years compared to its fall sailing, with the average age being 39. This cruise runs five days instead of seven and the starting price is $650 per person, so it’s cheaper than any other niche cruise. The April cruise for 2019 is already set aboard the Celebrity Infinity and will sail along the coast of Belize and Mexico’s Costa Maya.
In addition to sexy theme nights (because what is a sexy cruise without sexy themes?), Bliss Cruise offers educational workshops and seminars, all sexy, geared toward a younger demographic. But beyond that, there is plenty of fully clothed fun to be had, from ruins-hopping in Belize to beach bumming along the coast of southern Quintana Roo.
The soon-to-be-launched Temptation Caribbean Cruise takes the famous topless Cancun experience aboard a luxury ocean liner. The first-ever Temptation Caribbean Cruise is set to sail in February 2020 with ports of call in the western Caribbean. A little more subdued than a Bliss Cruise, Temptation’s new aquatic endeavor brings the topless pool scene to ports of call like Grand Cayman and Cozumel. The cruise focuses on being teasingly sexy — like the lingerie of cruise lines, minus the lingerie. Theme nights, DJ pool parties, and an overall party vibe is what makes this sexy cruise good for beginners. And while sex in public is not permitted and this is not an advertised swingers cruise… what happens at sea (inside your locked stateroom and nowhere in sight of other guests) stays at sea.
Another bonus for the single gentlemen out there: You’re totally allowed on. Most sexy cruises are only open to couples or single women.
Desire is the older, more sophisticated sibling of Temptation. With the same parent company, Desire Cruise has been around the block a few times and knows how to play with the big boys. As such, and unlike Temptation, Desire is a clothing-optional cruise. But also, it’s likely one you cannot afford. This changes the demographic and experience considerably, but it’s certainly an option for those who don’t mind blowing their wad. Of cash, mind you.
This fall Desire is sailing the Med, from Monte Carlo to Portofino to St. Tropez to Ibiza before docking in Barcelona. And for a price tag that starts around $3,000 per person, it’s a considerable upgrade in terms of facilities and experiences. Its couture-style sailing, with very little couture. That said, how many 30-somethings do you know who can drop that kind of coin? So take that into consideration.
Naked is naked, so what you’re paying for is really the upgraded amenities, dining, and offshore experiences. At the end of the day, fancy pants come off just the same as regular pants. Desire also has a roster of theme nights, a clothing-optional pool, and a steamy playroom. There is also a Jacuzzi Lounge with strategically placed jets for, um, neck massages.
As with all things sex-forward, there are a few rules, and these apply to all the other liners as well. First, no means no. Second, you are not obligated to do anything. Third, privacy is of the utmost importance and if you’re caught recording, photographing, or broadcasting anything in any way, you will certainly be made to walk the plank. And lastly, this is a judgment-free zone. People love to get around other like-minded people to express themselves, have fun, and just do them. A sexy cruise is no different. We’re all equals onboard, whether you prefer your ride in the bow or in the aft.
