Default Sex on the Balcony

My wife and I are going on a cruise and are definitely planning to try out the balcony. It will be later at night and we will not be loud. My question is I have seen a lot of posts on "don't have sex on the railings." Why is that?? Do they mean on the upper decks or is there something we should know?? Thank you!!

Don't want you falling over board....especially late at night when no one will see you.

Don't worry about falling, they have cameras just in case.

The name of the drink is "Sex on the Beach" actually is a pretty good drink....Maybe the cruise lines can come up with a new drink called "sex on the Balcony"

Well, you got my attention!. I must confess, I have never seen any other posts anywhere on "sex on the railings"! But maybe this accounts for a recent incident I read about where a woman went over the railing late at night. Her husband or boyfriend alerted the ship immediately and she was very lucky that they were able to locate her in the dark. Supposedly she was leaning backward over the rail to "see the side of the ship". Hmmmm.

It is virtually impossible to fall over a railing if you are seated or in a standing position with your feet on the deck. Unless you are doing something really stupid like balancing ON the railing, no problems. I'm sure you are too smart to do anything that foolhardy, but keep in mind people use their balconies at all hours of the night and not all balconies are fully covered so you might be viewed from above as well as peeked at from around the dividers.. Have a great cruise and be safe!

Actually - there is a TRUE story about a couple who were "doing it" on the railing of their balcony and ended up falling off the ship.

Sitting on the railing is strictly against the rules on a cruise ship (it is one way people fall off) - and so having se... I mean "making love" on the balcony is a definite no-no.

If anyone replied to you that way when you said this, it is probably because they know about the original story. It happened in 2007 - sorry that I can;t find any original links, but the woman was so embarrassed she left the cruise ship in the next port and flew home.

Hey, if I can no longer smoke on my balcony as of the new rule for all lines and ships owned by Carnival, then why the hell should I suffer at sea sexual acrobatics by other passengers on the same ship/cabin area? Potentially listening to "them" and being a passive recipient of that excersise could damage me, if only to my sleep.

I appreciate me smoking in the open air could take three or four minutes of suffering for those around me (dont think so), but those 2 mins could damage more folks that night than me having a quick smoke on my balcony. :-)

Tongue in cheek with above, but I cannot wait to hear from Carnival the next thing they will do to piss people off in rules and regulations, hey Chadxo, do it while you can bud.

Go for it during the day in full view of the bridge, and even better in port, see what they do then

On our cruise earlier this month we were enjoying a late afternoon cocktail on our balcony before getting ready for dinner. We started hearing "noises" from the balcony next to ours. And then shadows confirmed that we were not imagining things! Not sure how far they went but there were bathing suits on the deck of their balcony! Not that they cared we went inside to give them some "privacy"!
