Threesomes, oral sex and handcuffs... just another party cruise off Ayia Napa; SCOTS HOLIDAY GIRL'S HELL ON BOARD THE CYPRUS LUST BOAT.

Byline: REBECCA SMITH in Ayia Napa, Cyprus

ATERRIFIED Scots teenager told how she was sexually assaulted on board the notorious Fantasy Boat Party cruise in Ayia Napa.

The party boat is already being investigated by police after hidden cameras exposed organisers allegedly encouraging party-goers to take part in depraved sex games.

Nikki Russell, 16, who was on the boat that night, has accused staff of encouraging a man who she claims assaulted her.

She also told of strangers having sex on the dance floor and staff pestering guests.

Our sister paper the Sunday Mirror revealed how police were probing the vile ship.

Now terrified Nikki, from Edinburgh, has added her voice to the concerns about the cruise.

She said: "When we bought the tickets we were told it was just going to be fun and we were shown photos of drinking games.

"But when we got on we realised it was pretty seedy.

"Almost as soon as I got on, I was grabbed by one of the staff dressed as a policeman and he threw handcuffs around my wrist.

"Then he pulled me towards a man who was much older than me, really unattractive and really fat.

"He told me we had to kiss each other. I thought he was joking so I waited but he wouldn't untie me and so I screwed up my eyes and closed my mouth ready for a quick peck.

"But he slobbered all over my mouth and chin, and his hands were groping my body, especially my bottom.

"I pushed him away, I felt violated, and I couldn't believe it was someone who worked for the cruise who did it.

"It felt like I was being assaulted and I hated it."

NIKKI was on board with her sister Leigh, 18, and friend Gemma, 18, as part of a two-week break to the scandal-hit resort.

And the shocked teenager is still traumatised by the trip now she has returned home.

She said: "It was really intimidating - and the staff were the worst.

"My sister's friend, Gemma, and me were on the bottom deck in the toilets and one of the staff, who was wearing a sailor suit, shouted 'Hey, you two and me - a threesome now'.

"When we said no he said 'If I can't have both of you, can I have one of you?'

"He followed us around for ages, trying to get us to sleep with him but we were frightened and just desperately wanted to get off the boat - but there was no escape.

"And you couldn't even buy a drink without the barman stuffing your change into your bra."

Organisers of the boat trips have denied claims that orgies take place on board.

But witnesses claim otherwise, citing many examples of staff encouraging sex.

Three specially-designed cabins are situated on the bottom deck, ready for couples to use for sex.

Nikki and her sister Leigh witnessed the shocking party games, which saw people performing sex acts in public.

She said: "Three men were lined up and they got three girl volunteers.

"They were told to try anything they could to give them an erection, the crowd and the organisers were going mad and egging them on.

"They all performed oral sex in front of the crowd and another girl called Lisa was picked to judge who should win the competition.

"The winner got free drinks all night.

"For the girls, they sit with a melon between their legs filled with cream and the first man to eat the lot wins."

Police have been interviewing many of those who were on board that night.

Leigh added: "We got back to our hotel and security said the cops were after us.

"They didn't get back in touch but we spoke to others who had been interviewed and the police seemed desperate to find those who committed the worst offences."

Nikki added: "I just want forget it all."

Police arrested three Cypriots in connection with alleged offences.

The owner of the boat, the captain and a promoter were charged with "promoting indecency in public".

They were later released and the cruises are still operating.

PROMOTERS target large single sex groups to sell tickets to and have refused to sell them to couples.

Holidaymaker Rob Barnfield, 25, of West Bromwich, was also shocked at what he found on board.

He explained: "They only ever approach big groups of lads or girls.

'They tell the lads it will be the wildest night of their life and they tell the girls it will be just a good party.

"It is incredibly explicit. You could be sat at the bar and look around and people will be having sex all over the place, you simply can't miss it.

"When we were there, a man was having sex with a girl up against a pole in the middle of the bar.

"As soon as they were spotted, a group gathered around in a circle and cheered them on - they were both loving it.

"Some girls were straddling blokes in the bar and having sex sat down. You couldn't miss them but they were either so drunk or such exhibitionists they didn't care.

"Others went down to the boat's bottom deck into some cabins and had sex in there.

"They weren't exactly private, they were more like swimming pool changing cubicles and everyone could see what was going on."

The pounds 30 tickets for the infamous party boat are sold out every Saturday night as mainly British tourists lap up the explicit fun. News of the orgy swept the scandal-hit resort like wildfire - but the only concern from tourists was how to get into the party.

Alex Zabloudil, who was on holiday with Rob, said: "We saw the "watermelon game" go far too far - the bloke threw away the watermelon and instead performed a sex act on the girl.

"The blokes were cheering and the girls were shouting abuse at her - but I think they were just jealous that she was getting all the attention.

"The girl loved it."

By the end of the night, many of the girls are left topless or fully naked as they stagger around the bar.

Andreas Phillipou, a spokesman for Fantasy Boat Party, said: "We do not organise orgies.

"Ayia Napa is a wild place and the music on our ship is wild and what people do is up to them - it is their business.

"We most certainly do not organise or encourage orgies, that is absolute rubbish."
