On the Voyager or Radiance class ships is nude sunbathing allowed? As a male stripper I love sunbathing naturally, but found it hard to do on ships. (had ice water dropped on me when I did it on a private veranda
Would apreciate an answer. If you want check me out on my website. http://www.geocities.com/karlhugepecs/index.html
Sorry, Karl, no nude sunbathing.
Carnival is the only one that even allows topless for women, on one restricted deck. Some smaller European lines might allow it, but I doubt it.
There are occasionally all-nude charters of big ships, but on those, mostly, nudity is required, not optional.
I went on an all-male, gay Windjammer last Fall the was clothing optional and was a blast, but I don't think they have one planned for this year yet - check www.windjammerwest.com - specialty cruises.
On the last RSVP I did, on Carnival Ecstacy, we turned the topless deck into a clothing optional deck, much to the chagrin of the RSVP staff, but it was done with taste and proper decorum, so they let us get away with it. Ever tried RSVP? (www.rsvp.net) Their next big ship cruise is next year on the Holland America Zuiderdam. Normally HAL won't allow topless and I don't think they have a secluded-enough deck for nudity, but I got a penthouse suite with a huge balcony so plan on doing it there.
PS - nice bod (but I prefer more furry types) ;-)
For sun bathing you might want to try a German ship or at least one that caters to Germans. I was surprised when on the Deutchland the sauna was coed....I was in the buff when a group of women came in also in their respective birthday suits....Boy did I have to change my mind set fast.
My compliments on your appearance...I'm sure you were admired by all, and I mean all.
Thanks for the photo!
Great pics Karl, would love to see more! Wish I was cruising with you as I enjoy nude sunbathing as well. While in St. Martin, went to Cupecoy which is kind of out of the way and very nice. Last year while in St. John, found Solomans Bay. You have to hike down to the beach, takes about 20 minutes or so, but once there it is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Crystal clear waters and sand and enjoyed the day in the buff there. Hope this helps! Enjoy, have fun, and hope to hear about it when you get back!
Can't help you out with the beaches but let me tell ya the only thing i would be throwing on you would be myself..lol - Good luck with the beach search and how the heck do u get a body like that!!!! happy cruisin.....
Karl, the only suggestion I would make would be for you to consider a Eurpoean line (minus Costa owned by Carnival). Europeans have a different attitude towards nudity and have no problem with it. A German ship would be perfect for you. I sailed on the Deutschland...even the dry Sauna was Coed...nude coed. It startled me when I was lying in there not knowing, heard the door open up but didn't open my eyes. When the 4 women started talking.....boy did I have to adjust my brain real quick. There are a number of other lines such as First European and MSC...you could call them and ask what their policies are.
One further note...there is someone who writes into Cruise critics web site called iron pecs. Look him up since you both love the weights...you both would turn enough heads on a ship if traveling together. Being a gym rat I know what it takes to maintain. Best of the New Years to you..with that picture of yours you will surely get alot of offers to go on a cruise...work it baby! :^)
