I have comprised this blog to answer that very question. I am writing about a cruise coming up, well a couple of them but this one sticks out in my mind, the Jewel Of The Seas Swinger Cruise on January 28-Feb 2nd 2013. First off I would recommend everyone reading this entire blog because at the end I will give dates and links to book a swinger cruise for those interested. I could go into detail about the nudity and the sex you will have, but I have been asked by people “isn’t a swinger cruise dirty, as in not clean etc?” the answer is no, So instead of talking about the sex and debauchery, I will be going over what this ship offers in the way of amenities with pictures to show you how upscale this sexy ship is.

There are themed nights, parties, and events, but what you need to understand is that when you board you will be given an itinerary of fun on board events. I am writing this post so people understand how big and how much fun a swinger cruise can be, while showcasing pictures of how nice they are.  On this ship, there is practically everything you could ask for in the way of fantasy, things to do or people to do.  Other sites only show pictures of naked couples, but where does that get you? Don’t you want to see what you are getting for your money?

For those that have attended regular cruises before, a swinger cruise is not much different in terms of what to expect. Sure there is clothing optional, but the amenities and entertainment are always part of the agenda. The price of a cruise includes your cabin, all of the shows, and use of all of the facilities; all meals and snacks all day and night. On larger ships, there are places where you can go to breakfast, lunch and dinner and midnight buffets and all of the food is free.

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 that 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.

There are places on ships to play cards and board games, and the cards and games are provided. If you want to just sit and read, there’s a library where you can bring your books or select one from the shelf. Ships have internet cafes and some offer WIFI if you bring your prefer to use your computer in your cabin (some ships offer notebooks for rent).

Since swinger cruises are clothing optional, some may just want to grin and bare it, while others prefer to wear maybe shorts or bikini, around the ship until certain activities.

Some people worry about getting sea sick, but the ships being used these days have automated stabilizers which minimize the rocking. 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, sometimes changing the order of port stops. 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. There is generally less motion than on an airplane.

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. My brother gets sea sick but has never become sick upon any cruise, however better be safe than sorry.

The dress on ship is casual all day or clothing optional depending on if it is a take over or not. 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. After 6:00 PM they may request that you wear “sports casual” attire. That’s attire that you would expect a person to wear in a business office, shirt with a collar, slacks, skirt, blouse, etc. You can still wear shorts and swim wear in the pools and spas but not in public areas like dining rooms and restaurants, show rooms, bars, casino, etc. 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. But this is mainly in the theater and places of the like, I mean you wouldn’t show up nude in a theater at home right? Same applies here. 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 will not be denied access to the dining room or anything else if you choose not to dress up. (we usually take off the formal stuff after dinner and pictures anyway). You should pack formal, informal and any toys you may want to have fun with on board the ship.

I have tried to put as many pics into this blog as possible, this particular ship in question is actually 10 decks high. There are so many pics and I have only included pictures from one deck.  Here is a little more about the ship itself. The Centrum, or atrium, begins on Deck 4 and rises to deck 12 at the Crown and Anchor Society lounge. Although not large, this welcoming lobby area has a very nice bar, an attractive, marble dance floor surrounded by comfortable chairs and sofas and a waterfall. With entertainment nightly, it proved to be quite popular on this sailing and it was often difficult to find a seat. A free-form sculpture suspended above the dance floor is a focal point of the Centrum. This eye-catching sculpture made of aluminum, crystal and stainless steel is entitled “Northern Lights” and is aptly named. A lighted stairway, leading to deck 5, separates the dance floor and bar from the Guest Relations.

Tides Staircase dining room

Aft of the Centrum, on deck 4, is the main floor of the stately 2 story Tides Dining Room. Windows along both sides of the dining room, silk draped pillars, high ceilings, an expansive staircase and cascading waterfall all combine to make the area airy, yet elegant. Along the back wall of the dining room hangs a stunning 2 story mosaic of glass, brass and copper.
