You know how cruises are, right? The thrill of the open sea and endless buffets gets people feelin' some type of way. But one Canadian woman on a Norwegian cruise line was surprised to learn that her vacation fling was considerably under age, with the affair landing her in jail.

According to CTVNews, Karine Gagne met a tall, bearded boy who claimed to be 18-years-old while at a bar during a trip to the Bahamas with her co-workers. But when the two emerged from the bathroom (oh?), the kid's mom called the police. Cops arrested Gagne for sexual assault (15-year-olds can't legally consent) and she currently remains in jail awaiting a trial.

Chantale Auclair, Gagne's mother, is now raising funds for her daughter's legal fees. “I’m not blaming anyone, I just want her [Karine] to get out of there,” said Auclair.

If convicted, Gagne could face up to seven years in prison.
