‘Love Boat’ experience quite shocking for Israeli couple

According to the report, the couple, who took a cruise to Venice to celebrate the man’s 65th birthday, marked the milestone with some post-swimming copulation. During the act, however, they were embarrassed to discover crew members watching them from a nearby balcony.

The couple complained and were initially offered compensation in the form of a 20-percent discount on their next cruise, Channel 2 reported. They sued for 75,000 shekels ($21,300) – which covered the cost of the trip and damages for the violation of their privacy.

The unnamed cruise company’s lawyers, in its defense, argued that the couple hadn’t closed the curtains to their room, and that the crew members were painters performing maintenance work on the ship.

The parties were able to reach a court-approved compromise, Channel 2 reported: By April, the couple can choose one of three week-long cruises to set sail this summer — all expenses paid.
