Of course you are going to meet swingers when you are onboard a swinger cruise, but it’s not as simple as you might think. We have a few tips to help you achieve the most wicked memories and naughty smiles from your swinger vacation.
If you want to have the most success onboard, you should start networking as soon as you book. There are several online groups where you can chat with your future fellow passengers to make connections and ask any questions you might have. Definitely plan on attending the pre-departure hotel party because this is a golden opportunity to make connections and exchange contact info before you get lost doing different things on the big ship. This is especially helpful for shy swingers who might not feel as comfortable in the larger groups you’ll find onboard.
Practice Your Elevator Pitch
Sure, there are probably thousands of people on your swinger cruise but not all of them are a good match for you. That sexy match can happen at any time and you want to be ready. When you come across other swingers who excite you, you’ll want to be ready with your elevator pitch. This pitch is your quick introduction and offer that can done in less than an elevator ride. You want to introduce yourself, share one or two things about your lifestyle preferences, and make an offer. It could be direct like “Hi. We’re Jane & John from Texas, and we’ve been same room swinging for two years. You look so pretty in your outfit. Would you like to have a drink with us?” This simple & concise approach will save you time and help you make more connections. You don’t want to spend an entire evening talking with a couple that is not a good match for what you want. If they are only separate rooms or full swap, and you want same room soft swap, it’s better to find out sooner rather than later. This saves you time and, more importantly, let’s you connect with more swingers.
Being shy is totally fine but it is unlikely to help you make sexy memories. On a swinger cruise, you are surrounded by friendly & respectful swingers so make the most of your opportunity. You don’t want to have regrets after your vacation when you are back to work and surrounded by vanilla people. Be friendly and brave enough to introduce yourself with a spirited elevator pitch.
Many couples will have swinger cards printed up. These cards will have their first names, online screenname(s), maybe their hometown area, and their cabin number. You can get creative and put anything you like on these personal cards like a naughty joke or helpful tip. Feel free to show off your fun personality. There are plenty of online business card websites that will print up a few hundred of these for about $10. These cards are a great way to help make connections and stay in touch when you are on such a big ship with so many other swingers. Sharing your contact info also helps you to keep up your swinging friendships after the trip. Who knows, maybe you’ll all see each other on another cruise or maybe you’ll take a vacation together with adjoining rooms for naughty fun.
You’ll probably encounter a few cliques onboard. These are often groups of people that just happen to have the same routine like always enjoying an early buffet breakfast, so they end up spending the day together. Don’t feel like you can’t socialize with them. These swinger cliques can seem intimidating, but they are usually more coincidental and not intentionally being exclusive. Simply smile and ask if you can join in the fun, most of the times they happily make space for you. There are some private events that are arranged by different swinger clubs and travel agents for their members, but they are the exception to the more common open & friendly style.
Meet & Greets/Speed Dating
Cruise organizers know swingers are looking to meet new friends, so they usually schedule many meet & greet opportunities for you to network with new swingers. This can seem a bit intimidating especially if you are shy or introverted, but it is well worth it. You really should try your best to do as many of these events as you can. Usually, there are many different types of these networking events. Sometimes it is speed dating, other times it is a quiz game and you need to ask each other questions to win, or it can be something totally new. Since many people go on a swinger cruise each year, the organizers try to come up with new ideas to keep it interesting for everyone. Even if it might seem a little outside your comfort zone, try your best to network with new people. Veteran cruisers often say this is one of the most important tips for having the most memorable vacation. Make sure to attend more than one of them. The meet & greet events often get bigger as the trip progresses because more people start to feel comfortable enough to interact and flirt so make the most of these social opportunities.
Overcome Shyness with Games
There will be plenty of fun games that you can join. If you are shy & not the best at starting conversations, then try volunteering for the games. Having a group activity like pool volleyball or a drinking game is a great icebreaker to overcome your shyness. It’s not easy going outside of your comfort zone, but if you are a wallflower you are probably not going to get the most out of your cruise experience. Remember swingers don’t bite (unless that is your fetish and you give them permission) so try to enjoy yourself as much as possible and join in the fun times.
