Default Dresscode in sauna

I've been to a sauna a few times and intend to go to one on my next cruise. Now I've heard that there are differences between Americans (wearing a bathing suit) and Europeans (wearing nothing). What do people usually wear on cruise ships with guests from different countries/cultures/backgrounds?

Thanks for your help,
Jeanny

good question, I suspect factors include are you cruising in Europe on a European cruise line with the over whelming majority of passengers from Europe, or are you cruising on this side of the ocean with a cruise line catering to primarily American.

I suspect the safe (and politically correct) and respecting everyone's values that towels are provided by the spa for all guest

If you ever have the opportunity in life to go to Istanbul you should go to one of their "spas" and receive a real turkish bath. It is amazing

According to my wife almost all the women are wearing bathing suits on the ladies side and she has never seen anyone in the buff there. On the mens side it is mixed but everyone wears at least a towel and remains covered.

Thanks for your answer.

It's going to be a Caribbean Cruise with mainly Americans on board (I think), the cruise line is Holland America.

I've been wondering the same thing - glad you asked Jeanny.

When I go to my health club, most women wear their work out clothes (!) into the sauna. I can't *think* of anything more uncomfortable. I wrap up in a towel and was hoping to do the same thing on the ship.
