Melbourne, Jan 8 (ANI): The organisers of "cougar cruise" are set to bring the event in Australia, despite a ban by a cruise line.
The event, which aims to pair older women with younger men, was hosted last month aboard Carnival's Elation, where the participants went on a three-night trip from San Diego, US, to Ensenada, Mexico.
Tickets quickly sold out for the event, with demand so high that its US-based organisers the Single Professionals and the Singles Travel Company were forced to create a waiting list.
However, Carnival said it will not allow any future "cougar cruise" events on its ships.
"This theme group was not sponsored nor organised by Carnival but rather by a travel agent and the cruise line will not be allowing any future groups to be booked under this theme," the Herald Sun quoted a Carnival spokesperson as telling UK's Daily Mail.
But the organisers seem unfazed by the ban and are now planning to bring the cruise event to Australia.
"(It) was such a tremendous success, we are doing it again - twice," said Rich Gosse, Chairman of the Society of Single Professionals.
"In addition, we are currently negotiating the Australian Cougar Cruise for 2010," he added. (ANI)
