If Norwegian thinks this is good for their corporate image they are sadly mistaken. The cruise industry has enough battles to fight presently, and then Norwegian comes along and agrees to this nonsense which to some will validate their perception of cruises as being a sleazy vacation choice. As I type this the Norwegian ad above the message window says 'Norwegians Take It To The Next Level'. I guess so!
Yes - they were partial charters by a private travel agency. The first one was on Carnival which said they had agreed to do two, but after the first one they canceled the seocnd one.
Why? They never said, but it was discovered there were far more "ladies" onboard than there were "cubs" - and so the ladies were not too pleased. Furthermore, we don't know but we suspect the cruise line got a lot of complaints about guys and gals hitting on other people on the cruise who were not part of the "cougar cruise" group.
Yikes...that's so silly. Someone should have been there as the ladies were boarding to smack them in the head. Then again....to each his/her own I guess. I can understand how that concept was squashed quickly.

I am not against the Cougars, because I'm too old to be a target..

I have nothing against cougars, either, except when people call them "cougars" as if that is something good, bad or exciting. It isn't, it is just older women who like having sex with younger men - as of that is something new?!?
The reason women get to "call the shots" is because the program is made by the Lifetime network, which portrays women as beautiful geniouses, while men are usually portrayed as drooling idiots, or psychopathic abusers. Essentially a porn network for women.
I saw Love for Sail and had to grab a Tylenol. Are you kidding me? Personal Trainer? Scary. Bad plastic surgery, weirdness, delusional ego and trashy behavior should have cast her off. The best advertisement were the cruise directors. Why would a well reputed cruise line and Lifetime put a classless scary person like that in a show that's supposed to support their favorable image? As the Sharks would say "I'm out!!!"
