For those of you who have never been on a swinger cruise, below you’ll find information on what to expect on board.

For those of you that have attended traditional cruises before, a swinger cruise is not much different in terms of what you can expect. Sure there are clothing optional areas, along with adult entertainment and amenities that you wouldn’t find on a regular cruise, apart from that, your experience may be the same or even better.

The price of a swinger cruise includes your cabin, all the live entertainment shows and use of all of the facilities; meals and snacks all day and night. On larger ships, there are places where you can go for breakfast, lunch, dinner and midnight buffets all of which is included in the price if the cruise. There is generally a room service menu that you can order from 24/7 and that food is free (you should tip the delivery person a couple dollars) but does not include all drinks. The ships provide coffee, tea, milk, juices, and drinks like lemonade and punch for free. BUT, you must pay for soft drinks (usually about $1.50) and all alcoholic beverages including beer and wine.

Some people worry about getting sea sick, but the ships being used these days have automated stabilizers which minimize the rocking. There is generally less motion than on an airplane. The larger ships cut through the water so easy that you don’t even feel like you are moving. When there is bad weather, the cruise lines will steer around and away from it. Also, the ships generally move overnight and dock in the mornings so you don’t feel much movement. Consequently, your chances of getting sea sick are minimal. If you do get sick, all ships have a doctor and they will dispense sea sick medicines. If you are prone to motion sickness, just get pills or a patch from your own doctor before you go, or go to a boating store and get a sea sickness bracelet.

Once you board, you will be given an itinerary of the exciting on board events such as themed nights, parties, and other lifestyle events. There is practically everything you could ask for in the way of fantasy, things to do or people to do on the ship.

What to Do

There are places on ships to play cards and other board games if you like to gamble. If you are looking for a quiet area to read some erotic stories or just relax and enjoy the scenery, you can visit the cabana areas on the lawn deck of the Silhouette. Ships have internet cafes and some offer WIFI areas if you prefer to use your computer in your cabin (some ships offer notebooks for rent).

The dress code on ship is casual all day and clothing optional depending on location. So take swim wear, shorts, sandals, beach shoes, your snorkel equipment if you have it, sun glasses and sun screen, lotions, a cap or big hat for the sun, a book if you are a reader, your music player, sneakers and clothes to workout in if you like to use the gym, your camera, and other personal toiletries. Most 7-day cruises have two formal nights when you can wear your best stuff and get pictures taken, and maybe meet the ship’s Captain. If you want to dress in theme for the swinger themed events, don’t forget you costumes. The parties are always more fun that way.

The formal nights are REQUESTED not required attire. But some people do dress up in a tux for men and a long dress (any color) for women. Some men just wear a suit and tie and some women wear a nice dress but not a gown. You should pack formal, informal and bring any toys you may want to have with you when attending the swinger parties on board.
