The real "Love Boat": Clothing-optional cruise ship is due to set sail in 2017

Here at SAS we’ve heard some saucy cruise ship stories but never before have we heard about cruises specifically catering to couples who want to get lucky at sea!

The first ever Desire Cruise, aboard the Azamara Quest has private playrooms, is clothing-optional and is designed specifically with swinging couples in mind.

The adult-themed cruise will set sail along the Adriatic Sea from September 26 to October 3, 2017, departing Venice, Italy, and stopping in several ports in Croatia and Slovenia.

Daily Mail reports passengers will be able to enjoy a luxurious program with exclusive amenities including clothing-optional areas, private playrooms, adult-orientated entertainment, provocative theme nights, culinary experiences and sensual staterooms.

Rodrigo de la Peña, CEO of Original Group said: ‘We have carefully selected this amazing ship and this exotic route to enable us to provide our passengers the opportunity to live a high-end, sensual yet spicy experience in a luxurious and secure environment, where they will receive top quality service and visit paradisiac sites.’

‘We’re thrilled to bring to the sea our more than 30 years of experience in creating the perfect sensual atmosphere for adults, and we have no doubt that the Desire Cruise experience will be life-changing for our passengers and will become the sensual way to get away,’ de la Peña said.

There’s said to be ‘pumping pool parties,’ couples workshops, and ‘intense icebreakers’ to allow the open-minded couples to mingle.
