Carnival used to have one but they have gone the way of the dinosaur. They now have adults only Serenity Decks but topless sunbathing is no longer allowed.

I think too many wives complained that their husbands were "accidentally wandering" up there four or five times a day.

Take care,
Mike

Sorry.

Topless sunbathing is not allowed in the Bahamas on any of their public beaches. Atlantis resort has a topless area but you have to be a guest of the hotel to access it.

Depending on what balcony you have it is possible to sunbathe there but watch out for neighbors who like to look around dividers and be especially careful when you hear that strange noise and see the window washer coming.

I won't tell you how I know that.

Take care,
Mike

You might do a web search on your desired ports of call. Many places have "unofficial" topless or nude beaches. However, so islands strictly frown on such displays.

Instead of the Bahamas consider the Caribbean cruises. In several ports there are actually ship excursions to beaches catering to the nudist crowd, or just take a taxi.

A bit of research is a good idea as in 1 port they mentioned that it was actually illegal(can't remember which one).
