All Aboard! Explore the Cardi B Hip Hop Cruise and 6 More Adults-Only Boats to Book Now
Days of Summer Cruise
On June 28, 2019, you can set sail on a four-day, three-night hip-hop cruise hosted by DJ Khaled, with headlining performances from Cardi B and Post Malone. Amid shows (the full lineup has yet to be announced) the Carnival Victory ship will visit Half Moon Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas. Guests can take advantage of the boat's world-class spa, casino, 24-hour dining, and drinks at one of the vessel’s six bars, including a tequila bar and a station where you pour your own beer.
Temptation Caribbean Cruise
This chartered cruise sounds like something straight out of a 50 Shades of Grey movie. While on-board this 21-and-up ship, guests can lay out by the pool topless if they choose, and couples can visit the boat's red room, which offers “stimulating tantric workshops led by top sexologists” by day and an “ultimate fantasy space for couples looking to expand, experiment and enhance their sexual freedom in a surreal atmosphere” by night.
On Sir Richard Branson's flagship adults-only boat for Virgin Voyages, 18-and-up guests can enjoy a variety of grown-up amenities, including a tattoo parlor, a spa, and an athletic club with a boxing gym and sports center. Travelers can also eat and drink in one of the ship's many restaurants, including a mexican taqueria and a drag brunch spot. The first ship in the fleet will set sail to the Caribbean in 2020, but future voyages will include itineries to various tropical locations, including Cuba.
Saga Cruise Line
Looking for something a little more subdued? Only travelers over age 50 can enjoy a cruise on Saga's fleet. Every passenger's journey begins when a designated Saga chauffer picks them up from home and brings them to the ship, where they can sip cocktails, eat world-class food, induldge in wine tastings, take painting classes, or attend lectures and talks. With both river and ocean cruises, guests can travel across the U.K. and Europe, with stops in the Meditteranean, Russia and the British Isles.
This mid-size cruise ship is designed to give adult travelers a high-end experience, with more than 3,000 pieces of art displayed on board. Foodies can enjoy a meal in the two-tiered steak and seafood restaurant or an afternoon tea, while other travelers can relax in the spa or take on-board language or dance lessons. Arcadia sails to a variety of destinations including Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia.
The second of P&O's adults-only offerings, the Oriana offers a more laid-back experience on board with an Art Deco-style cafe, a library, shopping and a sports deck with golf, tennis, cricket and football. Guests can also take advantage of a variety of dining options, including the boat's signature Sindhu restaurant, which serves Indian cuisine on the ship. Oriana sails across Europe — from the Azores to Italy, Norway and Corsica.
Viking, who also recently adopted an adults-only policy for its river cruises, also sails the ocean with no kids on board. These small ships are known for their luxe amenities, including high-end dining, an on-board salon, a fitness center and spa. Viking sails across the world, and offers cruises to Africa, the Americas and Europe, so there are few destinations grown-ups can't travel to on their ships.
