Default Bikini on board

I am taking a cruise with my soon to be husband this summer and I am wondering if there are restrictions on what can be worn on board. I would like to wear a brazillian as they seem the most flattering on me but I do not want to offend anyone. Some of these can get small but I would not be wearing a thong. Do any ladies wear these on board?

You can wear a Brazilian!

From what I have seen you can wear a thong if you want to. Just go have fun and enjoy your cruise.

You will see many types of suits on everyone...even speedos on some men that would make some blush, so, not to worry.

Oh you will offend someone, but go ahead and enjoy your bikini body. There will be many (mail and female) in suits that they ought not be wearing. Just cover up in the buffet area and you can't wear a swim suit in the main dining room.

Yea i would only being wearing it around the pool and I would cover up once I left that area. I know what you mean about people wearing things they shouldnt be wearing because its not fitting to there body shape. I just didnt want to wear something to revealing and get in trouble. I dont even know if thats possible but i wanted to be prepaered if I needed to get new bathing suites.

Don't worry about the prudes.

Im glad to know i was not the only one having questions. I am going to wear what I look best in. I have always felt like if i work hard to make myself look good and stay in shape why not show it off. I just dont want it to be against any rules or anything like that.

I wouldn't worry about offending anyone. You'll probably see behaviour that is a lot more offensive than a skimpy bikini, depending on the cruise line.
