Among the many distinctive features of a cruise ship job is the fact that you live with your co-workers. That can result in unusually close bonds among employees and an unusual amount of sex between them, current and former cruise-ship employees told Business Insider. Some requested anonymity due to fear of reprisal from their current or former employers. Some compared the hookup culture as being similar to, or even exceeding, that of a college dorm.

A couple have filed a lawsuit against TUI Cruises after claiming they were kicked off a ship for having noisy sex. The German couple say they were just one day into a two week Caribbean break when they were told they had to leave by staff. Not ideal. They say they were left 'stranded' in Barbados with their luggage and are now hoping to recoup some cash from TUI Cruises. However, the cruise firm say the pair were kicked off due to a 'security-related incident'. While it was docked at Barbados, the couple got a bit 'passionate' but, crucially , forgot to close their balcony door.
And according to insiders, it's all down to living in such close quarters for long periods of time. Former and current crew members told Business Insider that living with their co-workers has created a unique environment where close bonds form very quickly. It has also created a "hookup culture" that's not unlike those found in college dorms in the US.
