Maybe this alterna-cruise is for you!
Set sail on the Carnival Elation this December 4-7 from San Diego to Ensenada for the world's first. . . Cougar Cruise!
I'm not kidding; this is a real thing. I just read about it in USA Today's Cruise Blog. From the article: "Singles Travel Company promises three days of singles meet-ups, dancing, and partying."
Prices start at $125 per person double occupancy. Unfortunately, Efron will probably not be on board (or, as some may hope, Jesse McCartney), but I'm thinking for three days on a cruise, a cocktail party, a bottle of wine, and potentially lots of eye candy, it could be a fun girls' weekend.
Here's the travel company's description of the cruise if you want to check it out. Or, if you want a laugh, read the comments on the USA Today article.
(How old do you have to be to be a cougar anyway? Or is it like that episode of 30 Rock where Jenna decides she's a cougar and gets a 10th grade boyfriend?)
Kidding aside, there really is a thread on ning for non-cruisers looking to meet up in Boston the weekend of the cruise.
By the way, if you're not on the boat, don't forget to post your wanted ad in the Looking to Cruise thread. 87% of poll respondents said they'd hand pick a replacement if their roommate backed out, so let them know you're looking!
