That is how men are supposed to look. That is natural. Italian or not.

Well, I don't think I will look nearly as good as either of those guys in mine. I do have a pair of standard briefs and a pair of square trunks like they do... I have been tanning though so I will at least have that going for me.

Yes, you have to work out and tan before donning the Speedo! Have a great cruise!

Default Boardshorts-No Speedos!!!!!!!!

Speedos might be good for a laugh but it's all about boardshorts where I go surfing in the warmer months (Gilgo Beach Long Island NY)

Default speedos vs. boardshorts

I suppose you're right. I think bikinis are OK for women if they have the body for it(in fact I recommend it!!!) otherwise you might want to think about the one piece. I did see your pictures and you are fortunate enough to have a bikini body however,this should work both ways.

Thanks Dave!! That is the Enchantment Bridge. Capt. Screko of Croatia leaves a captain's hat out when the bridge tour is going on for people to wear and take a photo.

So many people have worn that hat maybe wearing it was not such a great idea!

Default Captains Hat

I'll keep that in mind if I get a chance to get to the bridge on the Explorer next month. Probably do it anyway, what the heck it makes a good picture.

Let me explain about lice. It can be passed for person to person by a captian's hat. I have seen the lice bugs it's not pretty. Shoot I played with one on this lady's head, until I realized what I was doing. Then I told the lady I could not cut her hair and sanitized the heck out of my station, comb, cape, and chair. That is one of the things I don't miss about cutting hair. Okay who is scratching thier head right now.

an "unintentional speedo" : I was taking shots of the Carnival Triumph as we were in POM, but ships were leaving on the same day when I got this shot: I was on the Valor and the Speedo was on the Triumph; good zoom, I didn't even know there was a speedo until I download the picture today

Very ironically, I posted a picture of this same guy early on in the Speedo thread as seen walking onour very own Sunset Beach here. Then today someone sent me some pics including this one on the Carnival Cruise.

Here is the same guy here locally.

Just to report-I did in fact sport the Speedo on my cruise-sadly though I don't have any photos to share. Nobody complained about vision loss so I think I manage to pull it off (pun not intended).

Look more closely MSBJ. You can see the nails in both pics, the hair is unmistakeable, the earings and the tattoos are barely visible in the cruise pic.

She is trying to tell him that people may stare and take pictures. He seems to be wondering what the big deal is.
