A new handbook guideline prohibits the capturing of explicit adult films and pictures taken aboard gay cruises.

Sex in gay cruises shouldn’t be filmed and posted online… that is, according to a new warning from Royal Caribbean and Atlantis Events.

A new amendment has been added to the guest handbook of passengers aboard the Harmony of the Seas cruise ship who are attending the latest Atlantis gay cruise event. The new guideline reads:

“While we want everyone to have fun, there are limits and so we ask that you be respectful of all guests and our cruise partners. Please do not post anything explicitly sexual on social media in a public forum or other online space.”

According to this notice, guests who “post or publish an explicit and publicly visible photo or video will be asked to leave the ship with no refund.” This includes public social media networks as well as paywall pages like OnlyFans and JustForFans.

“This also applies to any private media posts (whether or not behind a paywall) that identify or could identify either Atlantis, our vendor brands, their properties, or any other guests with or without permission.”

A “team of volunteers” has been allegedly hired by the company to police which pictures and videos are being posted online by guests aboard the gay cruise ship.

There’s a lot to unpack here. First and foremost, it is unclear how this team of volunteers will monitor content that is being shared behind paywalls like OnlyFans and JustForFans accounts. Secondly, the new guideline doesn’t provide a clear definition of what will be considered “explicitly sexual” content. Moreover, it is not properly explained how cruise guests will actually be identified through their online accounts given that their profiles might be private, use different names, and/or use anonymous handles.

It seems like all that these companies can do is gently ask guests to please not do this sort of activity, but action against these content creators just doesn’t seem reasonable or enforceable.
