Default Nude Pool on some Carnival Ships????

Some friends of ours said that there is a "nude pool" on the very top of the Carnival Glory (or perhaps some other CCL ship). They have also been on RC Cruise Line, so they may not be sure which cruise line. Has anyone heard of this on the Carnival Line?

Never heard of a nude pool but Carnival does have topless sunbathing on the very top deck.

Default Nude pool on the Glory

Never seen that either. Never been on the Glory, but I have been on the Conquest, and its the sister ship to the Glory. And it does not have one.
As nolou525 stated, they do have a topless deck.

Happy cruising;

Nope. Sorry.........
There's a topless sundeck which is on all Carnival ships.
That's as far as it goes.

As everyone has said no "nude" pool, but top deck is topless.

Default nude pools on Carnival

No nude pools. As others have said, topless sunbathing on top deck.......but beware of the Guido's (men(?) who gather there for a peep show).

I don't know how true this is, but our cabin steward told us that the reason the pools closed at night, was because they didn't want people getting drunk and being unclothed in the pools.

"skinny dipping" after the sun goes down in a cruise ship swimming pool? I don't think so. Now a secluded beach? Well now

Nope, no such thing as a nude pool or even a topless one for that matter. There IS a 'top optional' deck on the CCL ships and they are located on the topmost deck and are for adults only and well marked. They are nice and quite and a great place to read and get away from the crowds but single men are really not welcome and I think you can understand why. I did just return from the Glory and it seems that on that class vessel there is a deck right at the funnel that is also very quite and up nice and high that is not listed as tops optional so that seems to be a great place for peace and quite and you can go up there without feeling like a pervert and getting glares from the ladies.

We were pulling out of St. Maarten on the Triumph in January, and I was on the top deck taking pictures. Some security guy made me put my camera away. There was nobody even on the top deck other than my wife and kids! Rules are rules I guess.
