This information is straight from the Couples Cruise charter company:



Yep, every single one of them.
Sorry, this is a “Couples Only Swinger’s Cruise”.

1st of all, let’s define the word “swinger”: Swingers are made up of people in a relationship that are non-monogamous. Many singles are non-monogamous and no one thinks anything about that, but many people expect couples (especially married ones) to be monogamous.

The simple truth is that most people just aren’t wired that way. Plain and simple, people are attracted to other people. That is why there is such a high divorce rate (around 50%) and one of the top reasons for this: infidelity. Not being able to have more than one sexual partner has created millions of divorces in this country. Swingers have found their solution for this: non-monogamy or the practice of couples having more than one sexual partner.

On a “swinger’s Cruise”, other open minded people will be on board hoping to meet other couples like themselves and hoping to start new friendships, re-establish old bonds and make new friends (with benefits).

In this context, it is a shortened version of “the Swinging Lifestyle”. Many people don’t like the words “swing” or “Swinger”, so they have shortened the phrase to simply call it “the lifestyle” in an effort to separate their play choices from those that might invoke negative stereotypes.
Yes and No. 1st of all, our ship will have a clothing optional pool deck, but our cruise is different from most “Nude Cruises” because we are open about the fact that this is marketed to couples that are in the “Swing Lifestyle”. Not only will you be able to sunbathe nude, but you will be able to dance on our stripper poles, participate in our sexy contests and enjoy an atmosphere quite different from a traditional “nude cruise”.
Of course not. You can participate as much or as little as you like. While there will certainly be a lot of couples that do decide to go nude on our pool deck, there will be plenty others that only go topless, some that will be wearing g-string bikinis and yet others that will be fully dressed. This is “Your Cruise”, so you get to decide what your comfort level is.
No. We encourage people to be sexy, but we cannot allow public sex for two reasons: 1. The ship’s crew will be serving drinks, food and cleaning up after everyone and they don’t need to be subjected to public sexual activities. 2. We run a classy cruise and we believe that there is a time and a place for everything. We believe that the place for sexual activities is behind closed doors. So please have fun, but if you want to take it one step further, please head back to your cabins or go to the designated private play areas on board the ship.
As much or as little as you like. We simply provide a safe, clean and classy place for everyone to meet, from there, it is up to you. If you want to participate in sexual activity with another consenting couple, then that is up to you. If you want to be part of a group or simply watch, then that is your choice.
Again, of course not. You decide when or if you want to participate, the universal saying in the “swing lifestyle” is “No means No”. If anyone is pushy or doesn’t understand this saying, then contact one of our cruise staff members and they will deal with the other passenger. Anyone that will not follow our rules can be put off the ship at the next port with no refund.

Absolutely not. This cruise is for experience couples as well as those that are just curious. We will have several speakers on board teaching informative seminars that will help new couples understand and find their place in this lifestyle.

We are looking for couples that like to dress sexy, that like to go out and flirt, that might be exhibitionists or voyeurs, that have experience with a 3 some or moresome. We are looking for other Fun Couples, are you one?

How long are you going to let life (and our ship) pass you by? Life is short and we aren’t getting any younger. What’s the worse thing that could happen? You go on a great cruise and find out that this lifestyle isn’t for you. Or, you go on a great cruise and meet new friends, you grow as a couple, explore things that you didn’t even know existed and have the time of your life.
Ah, no. There is one thing that we have learned in life, in most cases the only surprise that is welcome is a dozen roses. Before you will even be allowed to get on board the ship, you will both have to sign a form that says that you understand that this is a “swing” theme cruise (and we aren’t talking about swing dancing!). I don’t think that is the best time for your partner to figure out what you have booked them on.
Our events and cruises draw a wide variety of ages. While we do believe that you are as old as you feel inside, our median age is probably 45-50 but we certainly have a lot of couples in their easily 30’s & 40’s and some in their 50’s & 60’s.
No, the only thing we require is that you be 21 or older and that you sign our Rules & Conduct Policy. Click Here to read our Rules and Conduct Policy.
Yes, you must have fun and enjoy yourselves. It’s a rule and it’s enforced!
Radiance of the Seas (Ship registry – Nassau , Bahamas), for a complete review and more info on this fantastic ship, Click Here

Yes, of course. Every cruise ship and hotel we produce events at know exactly what kind of an event is going on. We have worked with their legal department to make sure that our rules and code of conduct matches their own goals and guidelines. Other cruise promoters have been banned from other cruise lines because they weren’t upfront about their customers or they didn’t establish a proper code of conduct for their guests.

We have proved ourselves to RCL with our smaller groups and we have earned the right to charter a full ship.

That depends on the type of cabin you want. We expect the bigger suites to go very quickly and the Junior Suites soon after that. If you want an inside cabin, you have some time before you need to book, but when the cabins are gone… they are gone. We recommend at least putting down a deposit so you won’t miss out on this exciting adventure.
The price includes your cabin, all meals, some beverages (tea, juices, water & lemonade), 24 hour room service, nightly entertainment, use of the ship’s gym, and access to all of the public bars, disco, theaters, shows & pools.
Eating at one of the specialty restaurants (Chops: a Steakhouse and Portifino’s: a fine Italian Restaurant), spa treatments, alcohol, sodas, any port excursions, photographs, items from the shops.
The port charges, taxes, gratuities, document, administration and security fees are $275.00 per person ( $290.00 p/p suites )
Look online and you will be able to book with a travel agency! The prices should be the same no matter who you book through.
We have a standard cancellation policy. Click here to get all of the details.
You must make your own flight arrangements to Tampa, Fl. There are taxis that can take you to the cruise terminal in the Port of Tampa. There are many hotels close by that offer free shuttle service to and from the cruise terminal.
Yes, the earlier you book, the better chance of having the cabin you want. If it is important for you to be close to the center, on the fantail of the ship or in one of the bigger suites, you’ll need to act quickly or those cabins will be gone.
It will move away from the dock at 4:30 pm (that way, you’ll have some time for sun and fun on our way out to see). You can start boarding the ship at 10:30 am.
You will receive a invoice from your travel reseller approximately 2 – 4 days after making your booking. On bookings received by Dec. 31 , 2009, you will receive your Reservation number, by January 15, 2010, so that you can start booking some of our incredible shore excursions planned . While we will have a number of custom designed excursions, these will be booked directly through Royal Caribbean. All new bookings received during 2010, our customers will receive their Reservation number within a month from the time of their booking.
we purposefully booked this cruise out of the height of hurricane season. If the ship needs to re-direct it’s course due to a storm, it will do so and let us know. Usually, this is done at the last minute (since storms are unpredictable). These ships sail year after year and know how to deal with storms.
On board the ship, you will not be able to use cash, only the Sea Pass card that will be issued to you when you board the ship. You will use that card like a credit card and at the end of the cruise, you can settle up in cash or simply give them a credit card to charge the balance for a quicker departure.
Only those with valid handicaps are able to book one of the handicap cabins. If you have such an injury/ailment, please let us know when you book.
We will be offering some great clothing optional tours through the ship. You will be able to book those in advance, we will e-mail you the details closer to the sailing date.
Better yet, you can simply eat when you wish. We will have a very flexible “Eat when you wish” system that will allow you to eat early on one night and later on the next. It’s your cruise, you decide when you want to eat.
Only single ladies will be allowed to accompany a couple in their cabin. The cost is $225.00 for most cabins and $ 395.00 for suites.
Today’s ships are HUGE and have advanced stability controls to lessen the amount of movement and helps people avoid sea sickness. There are some over the counter prescriptions that can help make sure your cruise is a stress free and healthy experience. We recommend that you consult with your doctor if you fear that you might be prone to sea sickness.
Yes. For more information on passports, go to www.Travel.State.Gov.
Yes, but for a price. It is very expensive to use your phone while on board. We recommend that you save your phone calls until you get into port and check with your wireless carrier to see what international rates you can get while traveling. The wireless internet is available (for a cost) in several areas of the ship as well as computer terminals that you can use (again for a price).
No, they are another company offereing a similar but very different product. Our company has been around for over 13 years and is the leading producer of lifestyle

Missing the Boat (a story from Bob from Couples Cruise)

We strongly advise our passengers to come into the departure port city at least one day early. For port cities outside of the United States, we recommend arriving two days early. I can’t tell you how many people try to fly or drive in on the day of a cruise, only to have car trouble, miss their flight, run into inclement weather and end up missing the boat. If you miss the boat, you can catch a flight to our next destination, but in many cases, you will have missed at least a third of the cruise. Also, you will have to buy last minute airfare to the next destination (and that won’t be cheap!). Even travel insurance won’t pay for this just because you missed the boarding time.

I (Bob) was recently on a flight from New Orleans to Ft. Lauderdale, to meet with our friends from Royal Caribbean. I was going to check out one of their ships for a site inspection the next day. Our plane was diverted to Tampa because of storms in the Ft. Lauderdale area. We were supposed to land at noon, but we ended up stuck in Tampa for over 5 hours and we didn’t make it to Ft. Lauderdale until around 7 pm (long after the cruise ships left the port). There were 27 people on this flight that were all heading to Ft. Lauderdale to catch their cruise ships on the day of their sailing. They all missed the boat.

I remember when the panic started to set in and the passengers started to realize that they might miss the ship. It wasn’t pretty. A couple of the kids started crying. A woman started shouting at the stewardess. There was simply nothing the flight crew could do; the airport in Ft. Lauderdale was closed. There was nothing to do but wait. What made it worse was that this wasn’t the only flight heading to South Florida. That meant that the airport would be backed up for hours, while they figured out how to bring in the flights that were already in the air, plus figure out how to get diverted planes (like ours) re-scheduled into Ft. Lauderdale.

They let us off the plane for a while. Some passengers decided to get back on another plane and simply head home. All that time they spent looking forward to a cruise, all that money they spent… gone. Instead, they were heading home and had to explain to their family why they weren’t going on a cruise. All because they wanted to save a little money and not have to get a hotel room for just one night. Speaking of that, I won’t tell you what some of the spouses said to their partners when they realized that their decision to save $100-$150 caused them to miss their cruise. It’s pretty silly, when you think of it that way.

Moral of the story: Always leave a buffer of time before and after your cruise

Need another reason to come in early: Get to know your shipmates early!

We are going to offer a variety of Meet & Greets, receptions and Grand Gala Balls. You can catch up with old friends and make new ones before you even get on board. So don’t even think of coming in on the day of your Couples Cruise, it just isn’t worth the risk.

See you in Port, the night before the Couples Cruise.

What type of cruiser are you?

Swingers

As one of the most popular lifestyle cruises, Couples Cruise draws “newbies,” nudists, and experienced swingers. Cruise through some of the world’s most exotic locations while exploring yourself on our charter. There are thousands of fun, playful couples on board waiting to explore their sexuality and have a great time with you. If you are part of an open minded relationship and are interested in finding couples with similar likes, our adult cruises are the perfect vacation getaway. We cater to tentative couples and experienced swingers alike.

You and your partner can make your Couples Cruise whatever you want it to be. Take it as far you want, or simply dip your toes in the water, with the assurance that no one is judging you. Our spacious, non-pushy, environment allows for many divergent experiences to occur comfortably within the same space for swingers.

Playrooms

Our cruises have the world’s largest on-premises club with over 10,000 sq ft of play space for couples who want to take their experience to the next level. You can interact with other playful couples, get revved up and spend your intimate time together, put on a show for other couples, or just watch. The possibilities are endless. These rooms are sensually decorated with rich fabrics (velvets and silk), sheer curtains, music, beautiful lighting and tantalizing scents. You may think you’ve stepped off the boat and into an ancient Tantric Temple. Our playrooms are customized to get you in mood for a memorable exotic experience.

We also have fully-equipped dungeons on board with “Dungeon Masters” to make sure everything is sane, safe, and consensual. You can watch demonstrations, volunteer to be part of the scene, or practice your skills in one of the many erotic areas located in our dungeons. This is the perfect opportunity for you to test the waters of new experiences that you have only fantasized about.

Seminars

We have seminars every day that give our cruisers techniques and tools to enhance their sex lives after they’ve docked in port. Our steamy ‘Meet & Greets’ and themed get togethers naturally highlight similar interests and help couples or swingers meet others from their area.

Cinema

At Couples Cruise, our cinemas screen some of the hottest and most sensual adult movies for swingers. We hand pick every movie to fit our upscale, classy atmosphere. You won’t find dirty “pornos” playing in our cinema. We opt to air beautifully shot, erotic films that appeal to the ladies on board as much as (and maybe more than) the guys.

Explore your erotic side by booking a Couples Cruise today!

Nudist Couples

Though clothing optional cruises sometimes allow nudity in all areas, we do require clothing in the casino, discos (although you can be topless!), and in the main areas of the ship. We’re a nude cruise that’s sensitive to every couple’s individuality. That’s something that has to go both ways. Our couples can take their experience as far as they want without interfering with anyone else’s. That’s freedom in action. We know that each person has their own fantasies and boundaries, and we cater to all. Our clothing optional decks are the perfect choice for couples that want to get that 360-degree tan. Other nude cruises usually have more restrictions, older clientele, and not near as many entertainment and party options. One big Couples Cruise difference is that our clothing optional areas are restricted to the open air pool and sun decks.

Clothing Optional Parties

While other cruises shut down the pool decks when the sun goes down, turning off the Jacuzzis and shutting down the pool bars, Couples Cruises are just starting to heat up. Our Pool Parties are becoming legendary for their all night dancing and unbelievable energy. You can dance naked on the dance floor or in the Jacuzzi, it doesn’t matter. We’re a nude cruise that keeps the party going all night.

Clothing Optional Excursions

On every charter, we book special excursions to clothing optional beaches, islands, and boat rides. You won’t get these excursions if you go on a regular cruise! Each excursion is researched and inspected by our team to make sure it offers you the best possible options to extend your clothing optional vacation beyond our ship.

Fewer Restrictions, More Fun

Cruises and resorts that enforce overly-restrictive rules and regulations take the adventure out of inherently adventurous situations. On some cruises husbands aren’t even allowed to put sunscreen on their wives, Jacuzzis are shut down at sunset to make sure no one does anything “improper” during the night. We are not that restrictive. We believe that most adults will behave appropriately and do not need such strict rules as long as it is clear that there are no sexual activities in public.

There is a time and a place for everything. Sexual activities should be limited to private places (like your cabin or the designated playrooms). That is why you can always feel comfortable at our pool decks without the fear that an orgy is going to break out in the pool. Our staff is always on hand to make sure that everyone enjoys themselves, and Couples Cruise provides appropriate areas for each level of enjoyment. If you like being nude and getting that great all-over tan, but you don’t want the possibilities to end there, then a Couples Cruise is for you.

Couples that like Mardi Gras and Fantasy Fest

If you are not a swinger or a nudist, you may still LOVE a Couples Cruise if you like Mardi Gras, Fantasy Fest, and other festivals that are fun, sexy, and adults only. A lot of couples come on board our ships simply because they love cruising and they also love sexy, erotic theme parties, without the kiddies around. Couples Cruise is the best of both worlds!

LifeStyle Cruise Theme Nights

We offer a wide variety of theme nights, including:

Our theme nights are the highlight of each evening, and our guests know how to dress to impress. We also have two formal nights, one with traditional formal attire and another called “Fashionably Formal” for a more modern take on dressing up. We should just call it “Fashionista Night” and see what happens. Couples Cruises are the perfect place to remove the same old clothes you wear at home and put on a cape, wear something daring, and become something special for a night (or the whole week).

No Kids!

The biggest thing that sets us apart from other cruises is the fact that there are no kids on board. Our charters have a 21 and over age limit, so you don’t to worry about kids running all over the place, taking up chairs by the pool, and sitting in the adult hot tub. What you will find are couples from every age range (over 21 of course), acting like children. They will be staying up way past their bedtime and doing things their parents told them never to do. You might even find a few in the arcade playing games like they were still 16. (Or maybe making out like they were teenagers again!)

One question we get a lot is “What is the average age of our Couples Cruise passengers?”. Well, we got our in-house math whiz to crunch all of the data, and the average age turns out to be 48 (48.4 to be exact). Of course, we have couples that are much younger and some that are older, but that is our average age.

Party People!

Our clientele ranges from salt of the earth nudists, to swingers to couples that just like to party. Check out our all night theme nights and pool full of teeny-weeny bikinis. The bars are open all night because there are no kids! Party people love to dance and twist around the stripper pole till the wee hours. We play house music, Rock & Roll, techno, whatever our clientele wants. For night owls who were never interested in regular (vanilla) cruises, come to Couples Cruise where you can find the experience you want. Take it as far as you want to go. The opportunity is here waiting for you.

Music, Music and more Music

We’re a floating city of entertainment. You’ll leave wishing you could have seen and experienced more! We bring on top DJ’s, Rock & Roll Bands, Jazz singers, 50’s Tribute Bands, Cirque du Soleil type acts, Adult Comedians and much more. If you love to tear it up in Vegas, South Beach, Hollywood, or just the best club in your town, then a Couples Cruise could be the wild vacation that you have always dreamed about.

If you are into bike rallies, wet T-Shirt contests, Jimmy Buffet concerts, riding on a mechanical bull, body painting, or dancing until dawn then you are our type of Party People! Book a cruise today. Get the fun started!
