Cougar Cruising

Too hot for Carnival, but RCL & Norwegian are game!

Long before being a cougar was an aspired status, Anne Bancroft was a martini-swilling housewife with a penchant for young cubs. But times have changed and cougars are everywhere – even cruises. Carnival hosted the first Cougar Cruise but couldn’t stand the heat.

Cougar CruisingCougar CruisingApparently girls gone wild isn’t an image they want to portray... No matter, RCL and Norwegian are up for the challenge.


Singles Travel Company and RCL are opening their doors for a whole new generation of Mrs. Robinsons – and their coordinating graduates. Take a peek at how they’re honouring their grads (if that’s what we’re calling them these days).

Best Ride

As a graduation gift, the original graduate (Dustin Hoffman) got an Alfo Romeo. But who needs wheels on the high seas? Belly up to the bar and a bevy adult beverages instead. Mrs. Robinson never turned down a highball, and neither should you. You’ll have your cruise liner for 7 days and your martini-flexing muscles will get a workout at the many clubs, lounges, bars online.


Made in the Shade

Dustin Hoffman wastes away his summer in the pool, clutching his hip shades. The unforgettable montage of the yummy young graduate aside, we suggest you sign up for the roommate matching to take the glare off your singledom. After all, you’re a cougar and there are cubs waiting to be coddled.

Get a Leg Up

Get a Leg Up

Emulate the famous Mrs. Robinson poster with her sultry nylons. After a trip to the spa. A scrub, rub and polish and those stay-up stockings will be putty in his hands – after your fair share of vamping it up, of course. Remember, lose the garters, not the sex appeal.
