Quest For Hire: Azamara Ship To Host Erotic Cruise
If SkyRides and wine blending courses don’t quite cut the mustard for your potential cruise clients, maybe they’d like something a little more spicy. Like a couples-only sex-themed cruise on a chartered Azamara Quest.
Taking the ‘Love Boat’ concept to new heights (or lows, depending on your perspective) Mexican adult hospitality firm Original Group has chartered the 690-pax Quest for a swinging sojourn in fall 2017 dubbed the ‘Desire’ cruise, it’s an 8 day journey from Italy to Croatia and Slovenia.
During the sailing, the ship will be transformed with performances, couples workshops, themed nights and “intense icebreakers.” An open mind is a requirement for the voyage, which will feature “mix-n-mingle” private playrooms and a clothing-optional policy on the pool deck.
The chartered sailing is the 1st of its kind from the Original Group, which owns 3 adult-only resorts in Riviera Maya and Cancun.
“We’re thrilled to bring to the sea our more than 30 years of experience in creating the perfect sensual atmosphere for adults, and we have no doubt that the Desire Cruise experience will be life-changing for our passengers and will become the sensual way to get away,” said Rodrigo de la Peña, CEO of Original Group.
The 8 day erotic party won’t be a free-for-all. Operators are implementing some house rules: Keep the noise level to a minimum after midnight; Staff members are off limits; No means no.
Azamara declined to comment. But we’re pretty sure they cashed the cheque.
Currently, cruises start at USD 2,883 and range up to USD 10,996 per person. The inaugural sailing is from 26SEP to 3OCT, 2017. Another voyage is planned for the next year.
Comments to a Miami Herald story on the cruise revealed a range of reactions. “Sodom & Gommorah comes to mind,” wrote one person, while another said: “Basically a swingers club. Big whoop.”
Another commentator wrote: “Will they change the water in the pools after the cruise? I wouldn't sail on that ship until it has a complete sanitation scrub-down fore and aft, and a formal exorcism.”
