Rules passengers must follow on ‘spicy cruise’ where couples can swap partners

Rules passengers must follow on ‘spicy cruise’ where couples can swap partners

It seems to be the new travel trend

I'm sure many people are beyond intrigued about what a 'spicy cruise' actually is.

In case you've somehow not heard of the travel phenomenon, a spicy cruise is a whole lot different to your standard family friendly cruise.

But what are the rules of these strictly adults-only, and sexual by nature, cruises?

Basically, they are cruises that singles or polyamorous couples can board, complete with 'playrooms', 'clothing-optional' areas and workshops run by experts to help people 'enhance their intimate experience'.

You're then free to explore your sexuality by hooking up with someone else, or swing with other couples.

TikToker Bella took to the platform share her experience onboard a Temptation Cruise.

While she obviously didn't share any of the spicy moments, she did explain that more things you can expect onboard are themed parties, pool parties, spa and sauna facilities and live burlesque shows.

Now that your attention has been well and truly grabbed, we thought we'd give you the run down on the inside of a Temptation Cruise.

You can sit here and enjoy your evening meal - though you have to be clothed for that.

And in case you were wondering about onboard etiquette, there are a series of strict rules.

The Temptation Cruises website states:


  • Upper bikini garments are optional at all pools, sun decks, and designated events.
  • The couples-only Desire Miches Resort Hotspot is the only onboard space that is 100% 'au naturel'.
  • ‘Appropriate attire’ must be worn in all other public areas, including dining facilities.
  • Some guests may want to keep their identities private - because of this, guests are asked that when taking photos and/or video, you only do selfies and close-ups for personal use with no wide angles.
  • Treat other ‘temptationers’ with the utmost respect.
  • The use of drugs is not allowed.
  • Keep noise to a minimum after midnight.
  • All staff members, original affiliates, brand representatives, and any person in a commercial relationship with Temptation are strictly forbidden to interact intimately or drink with guests otherwise face termination or immediate dismissal.
  • Explicit activities are not allowed in any of the public areas.
  • The resort is not responsible for lost items left outside of the safety deposit box located in your room.
