Grown & Sexy cruises are geared toward the black club crowd who are older than 30- and like to party in a positive and empowering atmosphere. These chartered sailings offer passengers the chance to participate in empowerment and enrichment seminars by day and see celebrity performers, including musicians and DJs, by night. Passengers can also enjoy exclusive events like comedy shows and enrichment seminars.

Plus, there are sailings from various departure ports visiting a range of destinations across the Caribbean and Mexico throughout the year. Unlike with many other theme cruises, you won't be so limited when it comes to your travel dates.
