Default NUDE cruises??!?

While trying to find a cruises clothes site (does anybody remember the name of the company - it was posted months ago) I ran across a NUDE CRUISE site. Thinking it would be Bob and Mary's yacht company, I was surprised to find that the major cruiselines have nude cruises!

The Nov 21 cruise on the Conquest was listed as a nude cruise!

There were message boards, tips, etc - all regarding nude cruising. One of the complaints (nude gripe board??) was that some of the cruiselines make you "dress" for dinner!!

Nude dining - guess it would solve all those debates about jeans in the dining room.....

dorothy (who is giggling hysterically thinking of nude gambling for some reason...)

Dorothy, I sure hope someone would tell you when you booked that it was a NUDE cruise!! Wouldn't that be horrible if you got on the ship without knowing !!! From:definately-not-into-nude cruising:Brenda P.S. That is a gross thought:someone's naked bottom has been on a chair I will be sitting in. No, we should be safe. Very new Valor ship-no nude cruises on it yet I am sure !!

I went on a nude cruise once. The biggest problem was not knowing where to put my keys<G>
Passengers thought I was part of the onboard entertainment, because I carried a stand up bass guitar everywhere I went<G>
They had a wedding onboard too. The minister asked .. Do you take this man? And the bride said.. I was going to, but I think I'll take that guy over there!!

OK.. so none of this is true.. but I couldn't resist.

Another thought is to go into the restroom and get those handy paper toilet seat covers before sitting anywhere after a nude cruise. Just don't punch out the middle section ..

I wonder how the staff on that ship likes/dislikes it.It could be a good thing or a bad thing to have serve all those nudes!! I think they should get 'danger pay' and definitely big gratuities(notice I did not say tips! lol).

I guess the part at the beginning of the cruise ( can't think of the word) where you stand on deck with your little lifevest would be interesting, or gross. Everyone does get pretty close then! BTW joggin on the cruise should be banned then......especially if your a guy!

And what a sight the other ships docked next to you might get a glimpse of!!!!

OMG! Now this thread is making me crack up!

Now Kuki - do not worry about where to put your keys - I had a patient once that had a very very interesting key ring/chain "installed" if you know what I mean. I just wonder how he wore pants with that thing!! He did have to remove it for surgery - sheesh! I thought I had seen everything after that!!

Actually the staff says that for the most part the nude cruises are pretty good folks and very polite and considerate! The staff is not nude nor are they supposed to be. <G> They say they are very good tippers and quite a bit less rowdy than 'normal' cruisers. Still, not for me though.

The reason the have to dress in the dining room....

What if the Waiter spills hot soup...OUCH>>>>

I'm sure because there is a potential liability.. If the waiter is distracted by something large and looming...in his eyesight..

Mark&Deb - I have to tell you a funny story since you mentioned the 'key chain".

I work at a Marine Terminal in Maryland. Trucks bring in cargo that will eventually wind up on ships. One day a tactor trailer pulled up and there was this female driver that had more tattoos and piercings that I have ever seen in my life. However, she had this one interesting (I will call it an item). Both of her ears were pierced and a chain was affixed to an earring. The chain came down to two piercings in her nose. And from her nose the chains went straight down....to two nipple piercings. I called her a female, but she was no lady.....A co-worker and I were looking at her, and without so much as hello, she said, Im sure that you want to see where the chains go! And pulled up her shirt....So, there is no doubt that she had nipple piercings. Now, the chains did not stop there. Lets just say that they continued on a southerly journey and let your imagine run wild.

! She didn't offer and we didn't ask to see where the chains ended.
