Default Freestyle Sun Deck Question

I've enjoyed Carnival because they have a top optional deck. Is the freestyle sun deck the same thing. Does Norwegian have a top optional deck? Also, do they have a adult only deck?

No, NCL ships don't have a tops optional deck. Some of the NCL ships have an adults only pool, but no tops optional decks!

I didn't notice an adult only deck, but the Sun Deck was rarely occupied by more than a few people at a time. The Sun Deck was great for solitude!

On one of the other message boards, there was a discussion about this topic. Apparently the "freestyle sun decks" are meant to be "top optional". We sailed the Jewel but never made it up to deck 15 to see for ourselves (I didn't let DH know about this option ), and I doubt that anyone will be using it for that purpose when we sail on the Pearl to Alaska in May.

As far as I know, the Jewel and the Pearl are the only two ships yet with this "freestyle sun deck". If that is something that you're really looking forward to, I'd do a little more research to see what you can find. The areas marked as the freestyle sun decks are on deck 15 of the deck plans for both ships.

Not the case - the newest ships (Jewel, Pearl, Jade) have a freestyle sun deck that is top optional like Carnival. Frosted glass walls and a great view of the pool area.

Sorry for the wrong info, shoreguy and others . I was just going by what I saw on NCL Sun and Dream! BTW, you won't find me there !

Carnival no longer offers the tops optional decks on their ships.
