Oh I don't know....I see your picture and you pretty hot to me!

All of us 40 plusers need to remember that when our body parts sag....It isn't from getting older but rather from being well used!

I would like to go and see if there will be anyone up there....

Speedos and small bikinis look really good on the right body...

When i was on the Glory they had a staff member at the foot of the stairs leading to the topfree deck. Guess, to prevent voyeurs and kids from going up there. Its a shame people ruin other peoples relaxation time.

This is not a complaint...only a comment.
On my first cruise I saw a young lady in a thong at the pool. She was in very good shape, but quite pale complexioned, and every time she got up from her deck chair there were big red stripes across her otherwise nice bottom. I suppose that is why the thong started in South America. It works better for those of a darker hue.

Thongs are nasty in real life. Magazines tend to distort realty. In photos we see these gorgeous supermodels in these teeny little bathing suits and forget that real woman don't normally look this way. after seeing Sports Illustrated or Maxim Magazine covers all year, I go on vacation to get a realty check. After a cruise, I don't wish to see a woman in a bikini for a while. All that sunburned skin!
I bet the ladies feel the same way about guys. They go on vacation expecting to see the chippendale dancers only to be confronted by the sight of beer-bellys on hairy middle aged men.

Depends on who is wearing them! Some people look better with clothes on then clothes off while other people!.....you get my point!
Absolutely my friend!!

I'll see your machismo, my friend, and raise you - but only by default. I'm Black so I've got the color thing pretty much nailed down. AAAAnnnndddd, I too wear a Speedo on my vacations because I also have the body for it.
As for the topless/serenity/adult... whatever it's called deck, I hope it's there on the Destiny. Not only to get away from the chaos of the Lido but, when the circumstance permits, I like to excercise my option to curtail my tan lines as well. No, I don't go nude - let's just say I have an assorment of very VERY brief swimwear.

Im sure the destiny has one, they may even have a "wash down" up there to spray water on you so you dont have to go to pool to cool off. The victory had one which is the same class of ship. as far as you females go...Im not one of those males that goes up there and "galk" at breasts.( you seen one you seen them all).I go up there for the peice and quiet.."almost" since its located near the exhaust stack and has alot of ventilation noise. Even though I wear my speedo anyplace on deck, you still have some people who make those rude comments about guys wearing one, so I just go up to the adult deck and i seem more comfortable there..After all a cruise ship is a exentsion of the "prude" society of the USA when it comes to guys wearing speedos. Afterall we are all on vacation.

Does the Miracle still have (or did it ever have) a topless optional deck? Or does it have a Serenity Deck for adults only where tops are optional? My husband loves to go topless while sunbathing. If not, then fine. He can use our balcony but there won't be any drink service.

I'm glad to see someone is looking out for the husbands. You know we don't want to be looked at as meat on a serving platter either.

Not since the renovation. They have the "Serenity" deck which is where the kiddie pool used to be, but it's not topless. Just very serene, quiet, with cushions on the loungers and very, very nice. The only problem with the Serenity deck on Inspiration, is that it's too small. IMO they should make the lido pool deck the serenity deck, and move the excessively loud band and all the screaming kids to the rear of the ship.... (WOW,,wouldn't that go over great) OOOPS,,sorry,,,that's "Inspiration". I don't think "Imagination has a topless deck anymore either though....

I have the answer ..take a cruise to the Greek Islands on a cruise line that is owned by a Greek company..you will not have an issue with the topless deck or beaches or thongs, or speedos or body shapes

I thought topless optional deck was now obsolete on all Carnival ships. We are on the Miracle in December and would love to know if there is a topless optional area on board. I know a lot of people don't approve, but we really enjoy the quiet up there and the drink service is fabulous! If there isn't one, we'll hope that the sun is shining on our balcony.

It's amazing that this topic got over 3500 hits! What does that tell you!? The wife and I love the adult deck. There's always a chair available, quiet and service is excellent (go figure). And, to answer anyone's question, yes we do, and to make it fair for the ladies, one of us goes bottomless. They love to look as much as the men too!

I personally don't care what anyone wears, it's their vacation and if they are comfortable in a thong or speedo, more power to them. If I don't like the way they look I simply turn away, read a good book, or watch some one that does look good.

I've never been to a topless deck, to tan, (I can go topless on any deck) nor to gawk (my wife is all I need to gawk at).

To each their own!
