Clothing Optional Cruisers Book Carnival Sunshine

Published

If you’ve complained in the past that Speedos shouldn’t be allowed poolside, this cruise probably isn’t for you. But if you hate tan lines and haven’t yet made your vacation plans for 2019, you might want to consider joining the folks of Bare Necessities for their Big Nude Boat sailing aboard the Carnival Sunshine!

Cruising Nude On The Carnival Sunshine

The popular group’s 2019 sailing aboard the Carnival Sunshine will depart Port Canaveral on Friday, January 25th and sail to Half Moon Cay, Ocho Rios, Mahogany Bay, and Cozumel before heading back to Florida.

The Carnival Sunshine will host the 2019 Big Nude Boat cruise.

Now, before you join the panties-in-a-bunch squad (distant cousins to the nickle-and-dime squad), it’s important to know that nudists aren’t swingers. In fact, there are very strict rules about what is — and what is not — allowed. Orgies in the hot tub? Not allowed. Clothing in the restaurants? Required at all times. And guests are asked to sit on towels whenever nude in any public space. And yes, Bare Necessities — whose cheeky slogan for the sailings is “See You In Bare-adise — charters the entire ship for their annual cruises. Also, all guests must be 21 years old or above.

So why cruise nude? Nancy Tiemann, president of Bare Necessities Tour & Travel, offers an explanation on the organization’s site. “It has been my experience that people who are able to leave their clothing behind in a social setting,” she writes, “are also more able to check their egos at the door and be themselves, as they really are, rather than who they think others would like them to be.”

Half Moon Cay, Carnival’s private island, will be the group’s “bare-adise.”

Think it’s too early to book a cruise for 2019? Think again, as the Bare Necessities trips are incredibly popular, with many of the most popular rooms — meaning both the cheapest and most expensive — being booked quickly. That said, there are still some spaces available on their 2018 trip, which will take place on the Carnival Victory. That sailing will sail from Miami to Half Moon Cay, Amber Cove, Curacao, Bonaire and Aruba before returning to Miami on February 12th.

Would you consider going on a “nude cruise?”

Carnival Fascination Will Be Upgraded in 2018

Published

on

It was announced today that the Carnival Fascination will undergo a multi-million dollar dry dock in 2018 that will enhance the ship’s public areas.

The spaces will be added during a two-week dry dock taking place Feb. 4-17, 2018, in Freeport, The Bahamas, prior to the ship resuming its year-round schedule of seven-day southern Caribbean cruises from San Juan, Puerto Rico, beginning Feb. 18, 2018.

“We can’t wait for our guests to experience these exciting new features aboard Carnival Fascination when she returns to her year-round homeport of San Juan early next year,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, adding that other Carnival ships began visiting San Juan as a port of call Nov. 30.

The new food and beverage options aboard Carnival Fascination include:

  • Guy’s Burger Joint: a free-of-charge poolside venue developed in partnership with Food Network personality Guy Fieri serving hand-crafted burgers and fresh-cut fries enjoyed amidst a décor that celebrates the chef’s California roots and love of car culture.
  • RedFrog Rum Bar: a poolside watering hole offering the quintessential Caribbean vacation vibe with refreshing Caribbean rum-based frozen drinks and beers, including Carnival’s own private label draught brew, ThirstyFrog Red.
  • BlueIguana Cantina: a complimentary poolside Mexican eatery where guests can enjoy authentic freshly made burritos and tacos on homemade tortillas, as well as an elaborate toppings and salsa bar.
  • BlueIguana Tequila Bar: a fun and festive outdoor bar offering a laid-back Mexican-themed atmosphere and tequila-based frozen drinks and beers, perfect for chillin’ by the pool.
  • Cherry on Top: The “sweetest spot on board,” Cherry on Top is the gateway to the joys of simple indulgences with bins of bulk candy, fun-and-fanciful gifts, just-because novelties, colorful custom apparel and more.
  • Alchemy Bar: a vintage-themed cocktail “pharmacy” that’s the go-to spot for guests seeking a unique experience with mixologists who “prescribe” concoctions from different elixirs and ingredients or guests’ own custom-created cocktails.
  • Bonsai Sushi Express: the success of the full-service Bonsai Sushi restaurants has spawned this casual, convenient yet equally tasty offshoot featuring a mouth-watering array of sushi, sashimi, rolls and more.

Carnival Fascination is currently being chartered to FEMA to house relief workers in St. Croix.

Carnival Cruise Line Brings Caribbean Air to NYC Streets

Published

on

With winter on the horizon, travelers are starting to think about where they can escape to the warmth during the cold season. To celebrate the Caribbean’s island destinations and promote their newest ship Carnival Horizon, Carnival Cruise Line has captured and canned island air from tropical ports, and invited New Yorkers to stop and smell the tropics with a unique experience that took place in Manhattan’s Greeley Square Park.

Not only were consumers able to sniff the fresh air, but the event also featured a heated tent, a steel drum band, and scents from the islands piped throughout the air (not in the cans) as well. Of course, the canned air vending machine was the focal point, and it also dispensed the chance to win a Carnival cruise. The cans of air were infused with natural scents unique to each destination, and included Wild Banana Orchid from Grand Cayman, Puerto Rican Coffee from San Juan, Sugarcane Rum from St. Kitts, and more. Carnival Cruise Line designed the event after a recent survey found that 95 percent of Americans agree that scent can trigger vacation memories.

In conjunction with the promotion in New York City, Carnival is hosting a sweepstakes nationwide on its social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) through December 16, asking people to share what scent inspires them to vacation using the hashtag #OpenFun for a chance to win a cruise aboard Carnival Horizon.

Currently under construction in Italy, the vessel will offer the first-ever Dr. Seuss-themed water park, the new Smokehouse Brewhouse by Guy Fieri with craft beers brewed onboard, and the line’s first teppanyaki dining venue. It will also feature the SkyRide which has been a hit aboard Carnival Vista, an IMAX theater, ropes course, and a myriad of stateroom options.

Following her inaugural European season, Carnival Horizon will launch a summer schedule of four-day Bermuda and eight-day Caribbean cruises from New York City before repositioning to Miami for year-round six and eight-day Caribbean cruises in September 2018.
