Singles Travel Company created the Cougar Cruise and it set sail on its first cruise in 2009. Beautiful women in their mid to late forties sail the high seas with young cubs between the ages of 25 to 35 years old.
Rich Gosse runs CougarEvents.com and his group The Society of Single Professionals are the ones who sponsor the Cougar Cruise. Gosse stated, “We try as much as possible to get as close to 50/50 as we can, but we never succeed in getting enough cougars for everybody.”
Gosse went on to say that they are even getting cougars that are “in their sixties and early seventies, too.”
Miss Cougar International, Amy Luna Manderino described the cruises. “There were definitely the boozy and Botoxed cougars on the cruise, for sure. But there were definitely absolutely normal, empowered, confident women that were not aggressive, that were classy.”
“The young male passengers are old souls. They’re very talented, they’re very educated, and they don’t relate to a lot of women their age.”
“When I saw The Graduate, I was 20 years old”, Manderino revealed. “And I identified with the daughter because she had choices.”
“I don’t identify with Mrs. Robinson. I identify with Miss Robinson. And so does my generation.”
