Did anyone else catch this on Maritime Monday??
Last month, nearly 300 “cougars” — older women who prefer young, virile men — and their “cubs” sailed away on a three-night Mexican cruise out of California aboard the 2,052-passenger Carnival Elation. The event was promoted as the world’s first cougar cruise.
The entire cougar experience happened over just a quick weekend. The cruise left San Diego Friday afternoon, went to Ensenada, Mexico, and was back in California by 8 a.m. Monday morning. When the group tried to book another Carnival trip, the cruise company said no. Carnival said it didn’t have any problems with the Cougar Cruise group but has chosen to discontinue such “theme” bookings.
