Default Answer the door nude

Hi Everyone,

Often we are nude while in our cabin. On several occasions my wife has dared me to answer the door without throwing a towel around myself. I haven't done it yet, but what would happen legally if I did? Could we be kicked off the ship?

Serious question. Just want to know.

I'm sure it happens a lot, doubtful there would be repercussions.

Consider this though: What if some kids knock on the wrong door? ...or are just walking by while your steward knocks? Not a good idea to scar them for your amusement.

You say this is a serious question

On most lines there is a bathrobe hanging in the closet, right by the door, so really there is no excuse for this situation to occur. As mentioned, it could be a child, mistaking your cabin for theirs...the question is provocative, and would be embarrassing to people on both sides of the door, I, would hope.

I don't think it would be worth the risk for a moment's amusement. If the door were answered by a female staff person, she might not find it amusing and you could receive a visit from security.

A few years ago the husband and I were walking down the hall to our cabin when a cabin door opened and a very naked young man was pushed into the hall by his very amused friends. He quickly ducked back inside. I did not mind too much. I rather wished they had locked the door behind him.

At my age, I look better with clothes on.

Manuel, although I have never seen you at all, much less in the buff, but I think we are around the same age and agree--at my age, I don't want to be answering the door ashore or afloat in the nude.
And I may be flamed, as they used to say, but to even consider answering a knock on the door in the nude is a little on the, shall we say, dim side.
As has been pointed out, it could be a child, elderly person, or someone that
might not think it funny and jerk you out by the neck and leave you lying knocked out cold for a few minutes. To be frank, to even suggest or think something like that is less than classy. Romp around naked all you want but be classy enough to keep it in the cabin for the sake of the other cruisers and their families. I'm sure they would appreciate it.
happy sailing--by the way--there are nude cruises--I would suggest you check into one of those.

I have worked in the hospitality / hotel business for nearly 40 years.
Long ago I lost count of the number of naked people who answered my knock at the door of their room / stateroom.

The vast majority of these people should not be seen naked. Liquid bleach will not erase the memories of some of the grotesque bodies I have seen.

Please do not complicate the already difficult jobs my staff have to perform by assaulting their eyes as well.
