I know, I know it’s not airline-related, but how can I not pass along a bit of news for all my young dude readers who love their older ladies:
Carnival has decided that, despite its financial success, it would not host a second “Cougar” cruise aimed at hooking up young guys with, uh, cougars. What’s a bit odd (well, the whole thing is a bit odd), but what’s a bit odd is that Carnival basically admitted that the first cruise was a success, but that it no longer wanted any part of this thing:
We made the decision in late 2009 not to allow any future groups on our ships to be marketed under this theme.
Why do they have to be such haters?
Royal Caribbean, however, says, “bring it on” (or something like that):
We have no reason to deny this group the opportunity to sail on our ship. We assume this group will follow our guest conduct policy, just like any other guest. We have no reason to think otherwise.
I have every reason to think otherwise, but that’s neither here nor there. Best of luck with that…
(Thanks to long-time reader Joey Z, for letting me know about this in the first place and for trying to convince me to go on Cougar Fest I, which I politely declined.)
