Default Sunbathing

My biggest gripe is cruising the tropics and coming back with tan lines.
When are ships going to open up a deck for Nude Sunbathing? I should
at least look like I visited "Paradise".

Hi Paradise,
Not sure if the rest of us people in the States are quite ready for that. There are topless decks on CArnival ships, if that will help you out and of course in the Caribbean there are some beaches you can bath nude if you want?? I do know what you mean by the tan lines, but what can U do.

Happy Cruising!

Tan lines....buy a skimper suit so they are minimal.Anyone who would see the tan lines ,should have been on the cruise with you...and maybe even paid for it!! ..if not then...hey...what's the problem!
On a more serious note, I have psoriasis and nude sunning truly helps the problem...I spend major $$ going to hospitals for UVB treatments....and I receive information on nude beaches (from the NPF)..... I have been there, done it. I also have cruised..and I really don't want to see people naked on the ship....unless it is a naked cruise...(then I won't be there)...but I believe they are around, so perhaps that is the cruise you should next book! Good luck.....

I know what you mean about tan lines... The first cruise we went on I bought a beautiful spaghetti-strapped gown. The first day on the ship I ended up with awful tan lines that really looked tacky in the pictures we had taken on formal night. Nude sun-bathing (not for me ....), but would definitely bring a tube top next time.

PS ..there was a topless deck on the Carnival Sensation for those daring enough.

As mentioned by others in this thread, all of the Carnival Ships have a topless sunbathing deck. According to one Royal Caribbean post I've seen, their Voyager Class ships (currently Voyager and Explorer) actually have a nude sunbathing deck. It will be interesting to see if Carnival will attempt to bounce back by changing all of their topless deck's to nude deck's, inquiry minds want to know??? We can only hope.......

Thank you Addicted2cruising! I'll look into Explorer and Voyager. Maybe I'll go on
a cruise after all.

Two Words "Private Balcony".

Also, I've seen an occasional post that many people enjoy nude sunbathing on Carnival's Topless deck without any problems. I have not tried this first hand, but I've seen many posts from different people who say they have.

Good luck, and let me know how you work it out?

We've heard the same thing that you can go nude on the topless deck's without any problems. I guess that most people that are up there won't mind the difference between topless and nude.

We don't know from first hand experience, but we've had some friends that have gone on those cruises.

No, the waiters, or any of the rest of the ship's crew goes nude, only passengers.

In fact, as far as the Dinning room goes, it is poper etiquette to dress for Dinner even on nude cruises. That is the only place (I think) that people are suppose to dress for.

Hi Plumberv,
I honestly don't think the rest of the world would be ready for that kind of CM cruise, but thanks for the thought :-)

Jeez, I'd never go snorkeling for fear that some sea dweller might just take the bait!

Just FYI:

I worked for RCI for four years, and I have a little secret for all of you...

There is no international law against topless sunbathing. Period. Deck or no deck, if you decide to sunbathe topless on an RCI ship, no one is supposed to bother you. I worked with the kids' program there, and we had to stop taking the kids across the top deck because every so often (rarely, but often enough to be a concern to certain parents) we would pass by some topless lady and have to deal with all these kids oohing and aahing over the "naked woman". Not fun, so we spoke to the Hotel Director about what we could do and found out...nothing.

So the next time you're on RCI and feel like whipping off the top (not the bottom, bottomless sunbathing is a violation of USPH rules), go ahead and do it.

Can you sunbathe topless on your own balcony - or is this frowned upon. We're booked on Mercury?

Of course, you can sunbath nude on your balconey. Hope, your balcony is secluded.
