GiGi - I am 60 and have been on four cruises - I don't ever recall wandering into a top optional area, but I might some day. If you post your next cruise and continue to post all cruises you take, I will avoid going to the top optional deck. I don't want to see your boobs.
Ok so I was on the Fascination this weekend and HAD to go there to suntan. Sure enough there were my usual suspects, but I loved the most that the stand up comedian mentioned it during the adult comedy hour and it was hilarious!!!
So--I will be on Carnival Triumph (my first cruise) week of May 8. I figured that the Caribbean would be a good place for looking at the night sky with my binoculars. Of course, I'd have to escape the ship's lighting so the top deck would be optimal. But then I read this thread and learned that the top deck is the topless deck. So, what will people think of me when they see me going to the top deck with a pair of binoculars....
Well, I guess there won't be very many moonbathers!
And by the way, I plan to go topless on any sunny deck I want! (Doesn't discrimination suck )
Oh my goodness! This thread is so entertaining! I don't have any Carnival cruises planned, so I only venture over here every once in a while, but I always find the funnest threads when I do.
Now...for my opinion....I have never sunbathed topless. When I am of sound mind, I have a few hang ups about my appearance and probably would never do such a thing. However, I can't guarantee that I wouldn't do it after some convincing and a few drinks of the day! AND....if I had gotten up the nerve to do it, I certainly wouldn't fault anyone if they wanted a look. I mean....I AM up there with naked boobies...what else would I expect??
Don't get me wrong, I think staring is rude. But some people have never seen a topless or nude beach in their life and may be amazed and intriged by it. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if I am willing to bear my boobs, I wouldn't be surprised if I got gawked at. :grin
So true about the topless sunbathing at night!!
BTW, it seems so funny these threads always get so much attention...last year on my cruise, the topless deck was never crowded, and hope that's the case in 16days when I cruise again!
Mike-n-sue...... (off topic) are you going to reserve a car in Cozumel? I think I sent you some info. I haven't decided whether we need to reserve in advance.
Crusin soon... you sent some interesting links and I have found reasonable prices for car rentals in Cozumel. Odds are we'll rent one because we never ventured far from the pier during our last visit there. This time we want to take a look around!!!
SOPHIE????? WHERE ARE YOU.... WE KNOW YOU COME HOME TOMORROW!!!!!
HURRY BACK TO YOUR TOPLESS TOPIC ! ! ! ! !
Ok, so I have a question....I was at the pool today (top on) and it was SO hot and I was wishing I had a drink...but no drinks are allowed. Then it got me to thinking...."do the bar stewards come up to the top deck?" They must all fight for that part of the ship!
I've been reading this thread and just have to post this little tidbit!
Last Dec. on the Victory, while sunbathing on the deck above the Lido, I opened my eyes to get a eye full of a young woman on the Tops Optional Deck! YES that's right all of her tops! She must have had several of those great "drinks of the day" she went over to the rail and set her rather well endowed self for everyone to see.......and then I saw what looked like a security person grab her arm and pull her back!!! I've never gone up there, wish I could get the nerve up to go sunbathe. hehehe So those of you who have been there, is there normally security there?
People keep saying hairy old dudes, I keep picturing Sean Connery. Life is what you want it to be.
Jeff and Susana Love the sign!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sophie really started something here, I wonder if she had fun?
