The cast and crew of Teen Mom are headed to the Caribbean next summer! TMZ just confirmed the cast cruise in 2017 on Royal Caribbean’s Enchantment of the Seas. Which Teen Mom stars made the cruise list and who was left out?
Organizers wanted a family-friendly affair and invited Amber Portwood, Kailyn Lowry, and Maci Bookout to entertain fans on board the luxury vessel. Unfortunately, Farrah Abraham was left out and won’t be the main attraction when the cruise sets sail next July.
That doesn’t mean, however, that Abraham can’t land a spot on the trip. If the former porn star wants to join in on the fun, she has to fork over $734 for a stateroom ticket and $1,303 for a junior suite. This isn’t a hefty sum for Abraham, but being shaded publicly like this will probably make her think twice about joining the cruise.
According to Perez Hilton, Vacations by Design organized the cruise and wanted to appeal to families, which is the main reason Abraham was excluded. Abraham, whose has starred in a few pornographic movies, has also penned three books: In the Making, Love Through Limelight and My Teenage Dream Ended.
An Iowa native, Farrah appeared in two porn videos with the controversial James Deen. She starred in the 2013 flick, Backdoor Teen Mom and its 2014 sequel, Farrah 2: Backdoor and More. The reality star also made her genitals into a sex toy and is a former stripper.
Abraham’s past work in the pornography industry caused quite a stir with her fellow Teen Mom co-stars. In fact, many of them protested Abraham’s return to the series last year and even threatened to leave if she was booted from the show.
Of course, aside from the usual drama, Abraham’s return went fairly smoothly, and she is expected to be back in action next season. It should also be noted that producers of MTV’s hit series didn’t have anything to do with organizing the trip, so their relationship with Abraham shouldn’t be damaged.
Shortly after the cruise was confirmed, Daily Mail reports that Bookout took to Instagram to promote the upcoming event, saying, “Have you ever wanted to hang out with the Teen Mom 2 and Teen Mom OG cast on a cruise? Now’s your chance, I’m happy to announce our very first cruise with our fans!”
The cruise, which disembarks on July 31, starts in Miami before looping through the Bahamas and returning to Florida on August 4. Hopefully, Abraham isn’t too hurt by getting shaded by the company and not invited to participate in the cruise.
Abraham has yet to comment on the fact that she wasn’t invited. It also isn’t clear if she will purchase tickets out of her own pocket, which would certainly add another layer of drama to the situation.
According to In Touch Weekly, fans can now book their spot on the Teen Mom cruise. Considering the popularity of the show and the fact that fans will get their first chance to interact with the Teen Mom stars, tickets probably won’t last long. The cruise is set to take off in July of 2017 and fans have to be at least 21 to obtain tickets.
More details about the cruise and how the Teen Mom stars will entertain fans have not been announced. It also isn’t known if any cameras will be rolling during the voyage, which would definitely make things more interesting.
Meanwhile, In Touch Weekly reports that Lowry’s 3-year-old son Lincoln just celebrated his birthday. Lowry and her estranged husband, Javi Marroquin, celebrated the event by sharing a few adorable pics of Lincoln on social media.
“My early mornings and long nights continue to be the best parts of my day,” Marroquin wrote alongside a post. “I love you Linc! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
Lowry also got in on the action and shared a photo of Isaac, her six-year-old son from a previous romance with Jo Rivera. Isaac is pictured giving his brother a big hug with the caption, “Good morning birthday hugs.”
There’s no telling if Marroquin plans on showing up on the cruise with Lowry, or if she will bring her kids along. The pair is still working through the details of their divorce, which they surprisingly announced at the end of last season.
Lowry and Marroquin struggled with their marriage for a number of years. Things took a turn for the worse during Marroquin’s deployment in the U.S. Air Force. They ultimately decided to part ways for good earlier this year and have yet to release the details of their divorce.
Production for the next season of Teen Mom 2 is expected to resume shortly. In the meantime, fans can watch more drama unfold as new episodes of Teen Mom OG air Monday nights on MTV.
