My wife and I have sailed on the Elation (Mexican Riveria) and on the smokeless Paradise (Western Caribbean) and both times have enjoyed the deck where topless sunbathing is optional. There are always lounge chairs available, it's quiet (no kids) and mostly couples. The downside is that there are many "looky-lous" cruising in the area and make it obvious that they are only there for a thrill. Why not make it a "clothing optional" area so the females have something to look at too? I took my bottoms off on both cruises and laid on my stomach and no one bothered me. Hope you enjoy your cruise and make sure you wear strong sun screen! PS- We are booked for our next cruise in October 20 on the new Spirit. Has anyone returned from a Spirit cruise yet?
