    MIAMI (AP) - Carnival Cruise Lines won't be sailing anymore with a boatload of "cougars" and their willing prey.

    The Miami-based company has turned down a request from a singles travel group to book another cruise with the cougar theme. The term refers to older women who date younger men.

    If the group thinks there is such a market for it they should incorporate and get their own ship and do their own cruises.

    Instead of bellyaching about what someone else does or doesn't want to do with their own ships.

    Carnival used to be known for being a booze cruise and the place for young folks to hook up (or so I heard! :)). I guess they want to clean up their image.

    There are alot of other cruise lines that would likely welcome their business. Last time I looked most cruise lines arent doing all that well.

    A number of years ago, my sister and BIL went on a cruise on Carnival.
    It turned out that a very large group had also booked this cruise....the "Big Bears".

    Big Bears, it turns out, is the term used to describe very large, hairy, GAY men.
    Other gay men who are less large and hairy, also go by the term "cub".

    The BIL, let's call him Cuck (because that's his name), has endured many years of gag gifts at Christmas even since.

    I've been on both Carnival and Royal Caribbean and Carnival is definitely for the budget/young/always-drunk-and-annoying crowd. Nothing wrong with it, but you get what you pay for.

    Like ateamer said, if that happened to me, IT NEVER HAPPENED, and a lot of witnesses who knew me would wake up with (uncooked) cow tongue beside them on their pillow! :rofl:

    You have to watch out for the camouflage on cougars. Many can be confused with Leopards, due to liver spots........

    Hell, my wife and I went on a Carnival cruise for our honeymoon back in '97.

    Swingers were everywhere.


    We had a great time.

    Oh if you only knew Chuck, it would make you laugh even harder.
    He's the stereotypical "nice jewish boy", complete with the wire-rimmed glasses, curly black hair and overbearing mother.

    Christmas gifts have included:
    Subscription to Gay Times magazine
    #1 Cub T-Shirt.
    Cubs baseball cap, complete with fuzzy cub ears.
    Chest and back hair wig.
    "Top Cub" runner up sash, with honorable mention for "most improved cub" plaque.
    The Gay Guide to Interstate Rest Areas.
