They say the early bird gets the worm, but don't you think those birds would stop caring about worms if being early meant they got all sorts of incredibly hot, steamy cruise ship sex? Of course they wouldn’t, because they're birds, which just means there’s all the more for you, thanks to MeetOnCruise.
From two FIU grads unashamed to admit they used to go on giant boats to meet buffet-loving ladies, totally free MOC's basically Facebook for cruisers, letting you "facilitate relationships" with fellow travelers before you even get on the boat, and was schemed up when the guys realized "there had to be a better way", namely, Internet-stalking the crap out of chicks for months in advance. First, whip up a "Cruise Resume", which lets you upload pics/ videos from past voyages and lay out all the personal info you're willing to share, including your cruise history, although you might not want to tell strangers if it includes "dating him to make him seem straight". Then, get down to business with the "Roll Call", which lets you check into the ship(s) you're hoppin' on and scope fellow boat-goers; you can reach out individually to grease the skids with comely vixens and cookie-bringing grandmothers alike, plus there's a group discussion section, and even a port guide on which cruise-perts can list things that're actually worth doing if you leave the ship, although if this site does its job, they’ll be worth doing on it too.
As the site's brand new, the user base is still filling out, and since they heard Plants vs Zombies had one, MOC's also rocking an iPhone app, which’ll let you check into people’s profiles and updates and post your own, so even on the go, you can be the early bird who lets everyone know that come dance party time, you’ll be doing The Worm.
