I am planning a Caribbean cruise and am interested in visiting some topless beaches. Also, I know Carnival has topless sunbathing decks but do they allow thongs? Also, do any other cruise lines have topless decks?
Carnival is the only cruise line that allows topless sunbathing on the funnel deck; they also allow thongs.
Topless beaches: the ones we know of are at Orient Beach in St. Martin; Eagle Beach in front of the Manchebo Beach Resort and the Bucuti Resort in Aruba. Jamaica, particularly in Negril and there are several resorts in Cancun/Cozumel/Maya Riveria that allow topless sunbathing in Mexico-- those resorts are usually designated as adults only. Other Caribbean islands of French heritage such as Martinique, Guadeloupe also have a number of topless beaches. You will need to do some research on specific islands to find out exactly where those beaches are. Go to your nearest Barnes & Noble or Borders bookstore and in their travel section there should be books on "Nude Beaches" which includes both topless and au natural sunbathing in North America and the Caribbean. We have seen the books and they are good sources of information.
Krista, I just want to say that if you have any trouble finding places to sunbathe topless, I'm willing to help out. I have a great pool, nice landscaping, you'd almost think you were in the Caribbean, and you (and your girlfriends) are invited to come over anytime and go topless all day. And when I told my buds, they are willing to come over and take care of fetching all the drinks and snacks for y'all, you won't have to lift a finger. We'll even put lotion on ya, and won't miss a spot. Hey, what are friends for? Nothing like a great tan for those little strappy summer dresses huh? Just say the word hon.
