Cruise Summary

Cruise five-night charter from the Port Canaveral is for couples who may have limited time and appreciate a value-based, fun-packed event with other like-minded adult couples. A frequent comment: Couples tell us “We didn’t have time to do all the things or attend all the events we wanted to.”

Departure is from Port Canaveral (below)  so plan to spend some extra time in Orlando or Cocoa Beach enjoying all the fun you can stand.

Orlando International is only 45 minutes from Port Canaveral.   Our adventure at sea leaves Port Canaveral bound for Labadee, Haiti before returning to a new Port of Call for Bliss in Freeport, Bahamas.  At both ports of call, select from many shore side events, water sports, diving, snorkeling, and partying clothing optional on a private catamaran especially arranged for you, designed to meet other couples and enjoy an all-over tan. You can also choose playtime back on board, enjoy specialty themes and have great excuses to attend Meet & Greets as well as fun workshops for adults only.  It’s fun on the sea with no stop signs.

Your five nights and days will be action-packed with fun and educational events during the day, delicious cuisine, and theme nights plus late-night mischief that will keep you awake to rock and roll.  Take your pick from parties, receptions, Meet and Greets as well as dining together to meet new couples. Live music, as well as DJs, will set the pace so you’ll be dropping into bed, totally spent from all the action.  Too busy for you?  Don’t worry, you can set your own pace for fun and games.  No one is grading you so prepare to let loose and have a blast.

Exciting news:  For the Bliss nude cruise charter in April 2024, every cabin on the Mariner of the Seas has been amplified by Royal Caribbean in an extensive upgrade program that also added new boutiques, more dining choices, entertainment venues, lounges, and more. High tech leads the way for the latest in entertainment, new cabin appointments, and restaurant upgrades.

You can expect the best in lifestyle entertainment:  The top DJs in the USA, live performances by side-splitting adult-themed comedians, Broadway, and contemporary shows, and live music throughout the ship.  These venues are strategically customized for you to meet other couples in “Playshops” like Tantra and adult seminars, massage classes, events at the pools, and topside with private venues for adult couples’ fun.   These surprising venues exude the sexy environment you’ve come to expect from a Bliss Cruise.

Here are some really good reasons to sign up and ship out on the Bliss Cruise.  For first-timers and those with the top 3 burning questions:  The answer to all 3 is NO!                 

  • Question # 1:  Will I be expected to be nude?    NO!
  •  Question # 2:  Will I be expected to join in lifestyle activities with other couples?      NO!
  • Question # 3   Do I have to dress up or wear a cocktail dress or a tux on a formal night?    The most emphatic answer is:  NO, and no means NO.   Don’t worry, no one cares and no one is there grading your performance.  You’re there to have fun at your own pace, at whatever level you and your partner choose.
  • Our staff and owners will be on board with you and we’re always available to you.
  • Special newcomer orientation is the first day so you can get your questions answered by speakers, Castaways and Bliss owners and host couples.  
  • No Kids! Couples Only… Adults only 21 and over.  Did we mention?  It’s “kid-free”
  • It’s your option to wear a swimsuit, or bottoms only or takes it all off, anywhere around the pool, hot tubs, sun deck or exterior lounges, bars and grills.  Some type of cover-up or clothing is expected for interior parts of the ship, while docked or at anchor unless announced by the captain.
  • Adventures at ports of call for clothing-optional fun.
  • Receptions and other excuses to schmooze with other couples at Meet & Greets for newcomers as well as repeaters.
  • Workshops and presentations from professionals and medical experts about lifestyle topics, health, and plenty of Q & A opportunities to ask those burning questions in the back of your mind.
  • Private meet-up areas are specifically set aside to share adult pleasure with other consenting couples, but only if you choose to.  It’s “your pleasure, your way.”
  • Live music, DJs at the pool daily, and theme parties nightly plus performers entertaining cruisers throughout the ship.
  • Get in the vibe:  Bring some fancy or fun costumes and sexy clothing to spice up the evening’s themes.  See and be seen….you ARE part of the SCENE, so paste on your party face and get ready to rock.   But you are NOT expected to participate if you choose not to.

Itinerary  April  22-27, 2024



Reservations:  Call 800-470-2020, (281) 465-4960 


Beachside meets mountainside on the shores of Labadee — a Royal Caribbean® private destination on Haiti’s northern coast. Here you’ll find pristine sands, coral reefs and jungle-covered hilltops nestling lagoon-like bays. There’s no shortage of places to relax and recharge across five stretches of beach. Or dial up the thrills on an active adventure like a half-mile-long zip line ride over the ocean. And fascinating culture, history and the natural beauty of Haiti’s spectacular coasts wait to be discovered around every corner. Escape to the Western Caribbean for a wilder way to experience paradise. Add on adventure:  This clothing optional port always includes a little lagniappe … a bit of something extra.   Here you can choose to beach it sans clothes or jump on a nude catamaran for fun day at sea….without clothes.

Bimini, Bahamas

Yes, we’ve been there! It’s a beautiful island and the beach club is one of the biggest and nicest we’ve visited world wide.
Wide white sandy beaches coupled with gin-clear water and never ending food and drink will keep you busy as well as pool-side world-class entertainment.
You would almost believe you’re still in Florida somewhere.

Ernest Hemingway hung out there years ago and maybe helped popularize this island getaways. Bimini has a surprisingly convenient, modern port that can handle major cruise vessels from worldwide destinations. There are rumors that the legendary submerged city of Atlantis may be nearby.

For water sports and attractions in your future, expect to take advantage of saltwater fishing, diving, snorkeling and relaxing water sports.

The jewel of the Bahamas’ Out Islands is Bimini. Join us and see why.


Choices of the day for sport fishing, bill fishing and more, set your sites on tuna, marlin, bluefin tuna, wahoo and bonefish…what the island’s known for.

Cruise Details

The amped-up Mariner of the Seas® is packed with more ways to play on the most maxed-out getaway ever.

  • Launch yourself into a virtual world on a new bungee trampoline experience — Sky Pad®.
  • Hang ten on the added FlowRider® surf simulator or race down The Perfect Storm℠ waterslides.
  • Bond over Tuscan eats at Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver,
  • Or kick off a date at night at The Bamboo Room.

Ditch the road trip for an action-packed cruise ship, with cruises sailing from Port Canaveral (via Orlando).  For Royal Caribbean’s vessels in the fleet, including the Mariner, all of them are being transformed in a $500,000,000 upgrade and facelift “Amplified” program.   Enhancements include installing exclusive additions for suite guests plus wall-to-wall new staterooms and suites to include new technology and designs throughout the Mariner.

Stay tuned for topless dining in one of the specialty restaurants.  Sign up early once it goes on sale….it’s typically a sell-out … and lots of fun for diners AND the wait staff.  You do NOT have to be topless to dine there at any time.   The best part to visiting a watering hole, look us up at Castaways hospitality venue on board all week where our staff will meet & greet you and your fellow passengers plus help you sign up for the next Bliss adventure.

Pre-Cruise Packages

We urge you to enjoy Florida before and after the cruise.  As long as you’ve made the trip, why not add on extra nights to extend your fun in Orlando or along the Atlantic coast around Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral.  A bonus:  You have a cushion of time to count on in case of a trip interruption, flight schedule changes or weather delays.   You don’t want to miss the boat, do you?

You’re invited to attend an optional Castaways Travel Meet & Greet reception the night before you board the ship the next day.  This is a great way to start your party early, meet new couples and see old friends. Castaways always has a room block at a hotel for pre-cruise accommodations….so just ask about the group rate.

Booking Considerations

Cabin Type

Do you prefer a cabin with or without a window? Cabins without a window are normally located on the inside corridor of the ship. There are also balcony rooms and suites. Balcony rooms come with an outside patio area where the scenery can be enjoyed without leaving quarters. Suites include a sleeping and dining area with additional amenities. ** If someone in your party is prone to seasickness, choose a cabin that is in a lower level and the middle of the ship.

Cabin Size

Having comfortable surroundings is important when going on a week-long cruise. Will you be spending a lot of time in the cabin? Do you want to wake up and drink coffee on the balcony? A small cabin with no window isn’t a good fit for claustrophobic passengers. Make sure to determine your needs ahead of time and book a cabin size accordingly.


Cabins and suites offer a wide range of amenities from Concierge services, to menu upgrades and spa access, to wet bars and butlers in the suite class. Determine which perks will make your vacation complete before finalizing a cabin.
