    Sexually-charged cougars: the latest cruise theme?

    It can only be Carnival!

    First there was a cruise for swingers. Now a cruise for cougars?

    (For those aren't familiar with the term, 'cougars' is the american description for mature ladies who like to pursue younger men.)

    So it looks like a bit of naughtiness will be hitting the high seas!

    The first 'cougar cruise' sets sail out of San Diego in December aboard a Carnival Ship (could it be anything else?!) - namely the Carnival Elation.

    The 3-night cruise, sponsored by California based Singles Travel Company, promises meet-ups, dancing and partying. The inspiration for the cruise was drawn from Valerie Gibson's 2001 book 'Cougar: A Guide for Older Women Dating Younger Men - a ptich that's filled with innuendo. In their press release the firm notes "a cougar know exactly what she wants", the book says, and "what she doesn't want is children, cohabitation or commitment".

    Singles Travel Company executive director Ann Thomas notes 2009 is "the year of the cougar," according to a recent story in Newsweek. The term is going ever more mainstream with TV shows like Courteney Cox's soon-to-debut Cougar Town on ABC and the Bachelor-like reality dating show The Cougar.

    The voyage will be headlined by Miss Cougar America 2009, Gloria Navarro, crowned at the recent National Single Cougars Convention in Palo Alto, California.
