No cougars on Carnival cruises, but Kid Rock is OK?
By Kyle Wagner
popular as cougars have become and note that were talking about
women over 40 who pursue younger men here, not the lovely feline mammal
on TV and elsewhere, their money apparently is not welcome on
Carnival cruises or on any cruise line in Australia.
Carnival Cruise Lines trip in December with a cougar theme brought
together 300 cougars and their cubs, and no one seems to have had a
problem with how things turned out.
However, by the end of 2009,
Carnival decided to just say no to cougars and their prowling. All the
cruise line will say about it is this: Late last year, Carnival made
the business decision not to allow any future groups marketed under the
cougar theme to be booked on its ships. That comes from Carnival
spokesman Vance Gulliksen.
Industry insiders theorize that Carnival wants to maintain a family-friendly image, and thats why they have banned the theme.
However, on Apr. 29, Carnival sets sail with Kid Rock on a Chillin the Most cruise that promises big fun in the sun Kid Rock style. Anyone who has ever seen or heard Kid Rock will have to agree that hes about as family friendly as a pack of dogs in heat.
the three major cruise lines in Australia also rejected bids from the
Society of Single Professionals for an Australian cougar cruise. The
group is the one that successfully pulled off the Carnival cruise to
Mexico in December, and now they plan to set sail to the Mexican
Riviera in May with Royal Caribbean and then to the Bahamas in December
Want to sail with them? Visit their website for more details on the cruises and other traveling cougar events.
