article imageWorld's first 'International Cougar Cruise'

The world's first 'International Cougar Cruise' sets sail December 4 out of San Diego on the Carnival Cruise Ship, Elation sponsored by the world's largest non-profit singles travel group.
In the movie, Oceans’s Thirteen, Matt Damion goes cougar hunting and runs into Ellen Barkin. A generation ago, in The Graduate, Dustine Hoffaman got an education from famous cougar, Mrs. Robinson, played by Anne Bancroft.
Cougar, is a term that refers to women of advanced years who make themselves romantically available to younger men, usually in their 20’s.
In the Urban Dictionary they refer to cougars as, “An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man.”
A second definition they put forth is, “A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities) waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. Man is cougar's number one prey."
Now it's cougar hunting on the high-seas! The Singles Travel Company is touting the "World’s First International Cougar Cruise." The cruise sets sail December 4 for three days out of San Diego and is for young men and older women, and sails south to Ensenada Mexico and back.
The cruise is co-sponsored by The Singles Travel Company and The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization. They are welcoming adults of all ages.
The three-day cruise takes place on board Carnival Cruise Line’s Fun Ship Elation. Along with a stop in Ensenada, cougars and their young prey will visit some pristine beaches, the fashionable shops of Avenida Primera, and a winery founded by the Dominicans in 1888.
The cruise ship Elation, appropriately named for a cougar excursion, has three swimming pools, a seven-deck-high Atrium, bar and grill, the Moroccan-inspired Casablanca Casino, and The Mikado Lounge which features stage shows.
Single cabin occupancy ranges from $230 to $360 (they will also match singles with roommates for those wanting spend about half), but don’t forget those pesky port charges of $89 for double and $178 for single occupancy and tag on another $44.04 for taxes and fees.
