For the unversed, an ‘upside down' pineapple is a code for swinging or wife-swapping. If one spots the pineapple on a cruise ship door it means the people are up for meeting other couples for adult fun, as reported by Cruise Mummy. The website further stated that it meant they were actively looking for a partner swap. An upside-down pineapple on someone’s front porch can be seen as an invitation to join a swinger party.
Speaking of the travel blogger, her video on TikTok got viewed 10.9 million times with many explaining the significance of the sticker.
