Default Topless deck

We are going on our first cruise on the Valor 2 weeks from today to celebrate our 20th anniversary. My wife has heard rumors of a "topless" area on the ships. Does anyone know anything about this or is it just a rumor?

Thanks in advance,

The "official" topless deck died a couple of years ago. Having said that I have heard (not seen) that on certain ships it is tolerated on the top funnel deck. BUT no one is around to stop pics being taken. On another note many have reported doing so on their balcony.

Toplessness still happens on the Funnel deck. It is 'unofficial' now, but still happens. Actually its not forbidden anywhere on a ship. But discouraged. On European cruises it is commonplace.

Carnival used to have topless decks on some ships, but about a year to a year and a half ago they did away with them. The scuttlebutt is that there were too many problems or they just weren't popular enough, depending on who you ask. For whatever reason, this decision came down from Carnival's corporate office. I do know of nudist cruise charters, but question the worth of those.

A previous poster mentioned not to think of models or actresses on this. Probably true, though I wouldn't miss model types(most of the women that actually model have personalities that make Cujo look kind, in my experience), though I certainly would miss the leading lady type actresses. Do quite enjoy the company of the young, hot, artsy types.

Ok, enough of my rambling.

I was on the Carnival Fantasy back in 2001 and they had a topless deck. My friend and I wanted a quiet place in the sun to read our books so up we went. We were the only two ppl up there except about every 5 minutes a different old man would come up the stairs, look around and then go back down the other stairs. Guess they were just checking out the view. We laughed about disappointing them.
