did we REALLY need the topless decks anyway, jeesh.

Go to the beaches that allow it, we could see them nekkid (yes it was a nekkid beach) from our chairs at the SUNSET resort in jamaica lol.

So many kids on Carnival ships esp....just keep the puppies in the cage

Mrs. Kuki was never allowed on the topless decks anyway. I didn't want people to think I married her for her money

It saves me a lot of trouble too, as I always had to run up there and check to make sure the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) wasn't up there. Now, I don't worry too much about her being up there playing miniature golf, so I can save my energy climbing those stairs. 8)

You can still go topless just about anywhere on any deck on Costa (which is Carnival owned). Celebrity still has topless areas and there's probably more cruise lines that have topless.

It's too bad they did away with the F deck on Carnival, it was a nice quiet place to sunbathe.

Those topless decks offended me.. I must have gone up there 10 times a day and was offended every single time.
To be honest last time I went up there were naked men...yuck... Like I said...that was the LAST time.

Default Best Kept Secret Up There

I felt that the topless deck on the Carnival Destiny was one of its best kept secrets: People tended to shy away from this area, so, on the days when the public areas were too crowded because we were at sea, I could take a peaceful nap in the the shade of the tail or smoke stacks up there. Occasionally, someone with enough curiosity would come up just long enough to see if there were any breasts worth looking at, then go back down... I guess they didn't find my man-boobs worth looking at, hehehehe... 8)

If you want topless go on a Mediteranean cruise and hit ANY beach in Europe. My friend went to Europe and was at the beach when some windsurfers came out of the water and proceeded to take his wetsuit off and leave BUCK NAKED!!!!! Women there also go topless, and they do NOT care what size they are--size 0 of size 24+ they bare it all to get an even tan!

I went on the topless deck, but it was empty and it was only to take pictures.....I'll keep my girls secure in their spandex holster.......

The Funnel deck was the topless area on the Fantasy class. The new waterpark is what eliminated it. The serenity area was a kiddie pool before. The mini golf is forward. This picture best illustrates what happened to it. Imagine your kids standing in line to go down the slide and the view they would have.

That's true, but it only means that the Serenity Area is for those of us at least 21 years old. (ie: no screaming kids in the hot tubs!) It was NOT a topless area.

Parts of South Beach are topless, I think. At least a coworker of mine said that it was.

My older nephew (age 21) will be disappointed. At the last minute he couldn't come on our cruise in 2006 so we took a picture of the SIGN to the topless deck to tease him. He will be hurt that Carnival eliminated the topless deck.

i know the beach in jamiaca (next to sunset beach) was a nude beach lol. We saw a couple of guys (i think the were indeed a couple lol) frolicking nekkid over the sand dunes. You couldnt see anything unless you tried, so we craned our necks, got a look and that was so enough lol


but...you could go topless there with no issues unless you have an issue with butt nekkidness.
