Thonging on Australian ocean cruises

Well we are back from our cruise and wow what a fun time we had. We left Sydney on October 26th and returned on November 3rd. So it was 8 nights with 3 port stops. These were at Isle of Pines, Ouvea and lastly Noumea.

At Isle of Pines when you walk off the wharf just turn left and follow the beach to the other end. Here you basically have the place to yourself as all the other passengers will go to the other side of the isle to snorkel. I did this and had a few walk past and never had any problems.

At Ouvea the same sort of thing happens where most of the passengers just stay in the same spot at the main village. We paid for a ride to the other end of the isle and again had the beach to our selves. We could see for miles either way up and down the beach from where we were and didn't see 1 other person. Thonged and swam here for hours, only other company the wife and I had was some birds flying in and out LOL.

Didn't thong at Noumea or Amedee Isle as by then my body had had enough sun for a few days. However I don't think it would have been a problem finding a spot all to yourself.

Didn't thong on the boat as it was a tad cold for us with the wind/breeze. Would possibly be ok to do up on the adults only deck depending what the other passengers were like.

Oh and Cottong, you'll LOVE the cruise. We gave the spa and the bar a good work out LOL.
Also Demo (you'll meet him as he is the entertainment director) is one funny bugger.
The head female singer (can't remember her name)is a real head turner and boy does she have one big set of lungs on her.

Food, WOW!!!!, what can I say? The food on the ship is out standing and almost endless.

<p>NYCTHONG -</p><p>Did you get a chance to thong aboard your cruise?  I've sailed RCCL many times and usually stay away from the main pool area.  Don't like all the noise, but usually find a nice quiet place on the deck above where I can thong and sun without any issues.   </p><p> I have overheard people walking past make comments like, "oh my he's in a thong!"   Don't they realize that even though I might be face down sunning my buns, I'm still not asleep?</p><p>Oh well!  Keep thonging!</p>

I'm back.  We were on the P&O Sun.  Sydney to  Brisbane.

I left for Sydney on the 6th so didn't have access to a computer.

We went to the Isle of Pines, Lifou and Vila. I didn't see any thongs anywhere but there was some speedos being worn. It seemed on the Isle of Pines it was even up around 40% of the men were wearing them.  But then at the following ports they seemed to have put them away.

On our trip the beach near the wharf was full of Aussies. I did swim around the rock on the other side.

My wife went on a cruise in March last year and the cruise director on the Star wasn't very good. She did enjoy Demo. I won a game of bingo. We went snorkeling in Vila. The whole cruise was very enjoyable.

On Carnival the top deck (very small) by the smoke stack are topless too. The remaining decks ...you could wear

a thong but you would be in the minority.

Unfortunately Capt Jim is correct.  Carnival used to have (and promote) their topless sundecks.   However, they've been getting rid of these on their newer ships. I'll be sailing on Adventure of the Seas at the end of January and plan on thonging.  Royal Caribbean is hardly the most speedo friendly cruise line, so thonging should be a true "adventure."  I usually thong on the upper decks away from the crowds at the pool and have had no issues.Have thonged on Carnival, Costa, Princess and Holland America before without incident.  So hopefully RCCL will be the same.

its been nearly 2 years now but on a carnival ship to mexican riveria,etc.  they had a topless deck at that time but i wore a thong, actually a gstring on the main deck around the pool all 5 days.  no doubt there were comments but none that i heard.  who cares, go ahead and wear what you want to.

Will be on Princess' "Golden Princess" in March. Departs 3/15 for seven days. Any experieces w/ this line or particular cruise? I believe the ports of call are similar to the above posts. I hope there won't be too many spring breakers.

pkthong, we have cruised on Princess Cruise Lines many times. You won't see many thongs but you will no encounter any problems wearing one. I would suggest avoiding the main pool area since I suspect you will have many spring breakers and families on your cruise at that time of year.

 Just got back from cruise. Mostly families with kids and a few spring breakers. Saw only one thong the whole time (female). Saw one elderly guy in a standard speedo.
 The ship conditons were surprisingly cold and windy most of the time(for me). The people from the midwest and Canada seemed to think it was a tropical paradise(guess I'm just a cold wuss).
 I managed to get two days on deck or in pool w/ sunup sundown rio kept it low key and no problems.

RE:  The question on thonging on an Alaskan cruise.

Forget it, at least in the outdoor pools - way too cold outdoors, in fact if you are visiting the Hubbard Glacier be sure to pack some very warm clothes including jacket, scarf, gloves, a hat and especially ear protection - that wind in Disenchantment Bay is brutal.  The rest of the time up and down the Inside Passage it will be meerely chilly on deck. 

Not sure how you would fit in thonging aboard an NCL ship in an inside pool.  Supposedly NCL caters to an older age group and any ship making the Alaska run is going to have a lot of Asian tourists aboard. Hedge your bets and take along bikinis just in case thongs don't fit in.

I just returned from a special 2 night Inaugural sailing of the new Celebrity Solstice as I am a travel agent and Tuesday was laying out on the top deck in my thong.  Very rarely do I receive a comment, but I was laying out on the top deck enjoying the sun and had my ball cap down low over my head but I could see people walking by.  A couple of women walked by and I over heard one of the women say, 'Man, he is hot'.  That sure made me feel good to hear such a positive comment and to know my hard work in the gym is paying off!

In ocho rios you can hire a taxi at the port that can take you to Hedonism it is like a 45 min each way but you are going to have a blast. In cozumel take the ferry to playa del carmen and I had thonged in grand cayman at the seven mile beach. Just tell to the driver that take you to the end of the beach, it is just one dollar more and you can walk a little and find an spot just for you.

I will take a cruise around the Baltic Sea from 21st May to 2nd June in the Celebrity Cruises, the ship will be the Century.  I will obviously wear only thongs at pool.  Has anyone planned to take the same cruise?   I speak English, French and Spanish.

I have thonged only occasionally on cruise ships, and only very inconspicuously, like early in the AM or late at night, for the same reasons others have given.  On another thread (this board) the poster gave the website and discussion board for NCL which I visited and specifically asked them about their thong policy.  They were VERY hostile that I should even ask.  I got several nasty emails from the board moderator (based in the US) who told me that thongs were risque and inappropriate even for discussion on the board.  All my posts were deleted.

I've worn my moderate thongs very comfortably and without incident on the clipper ship Star Clipper, of the Star Clippers line, in both the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.  These are pretty upscale groups of people, with many Europeans, and nobody complains, even though I'm the only one.  There was some toplessness on the Med trip.  Sure people notice, but they seem okay with it, and my wife and I make many friends in the small, congenial groups.

I have booked a week on Royal Caribbean in May.  Anyone been on this line?  Has anyone wore thongs or skimpy suits?  I dont think I will wear a thong but would like to wear my Dore, NU-Parr or JS bikinis.

Yes, been on Royal Caribbean.  Saw nothing but board shorts.  I assume you are cruising in the Caribbean, so plan on being the only one, or if you are lucky, one of the three in skimpier swimwear.  I usually will wear a trunk style suit, or a speedo if am feeling daring.  Problem with Royal Caribbean, they cater to alot of rednecks so don't plan on getting alot of company in skimpy swimsuits, certainly not in thongs or Dore bikinis.

I usually cruise on Costa, and while it has more Europeans in the Caribbean routes, you still won't see alot of speedos, but more than on other cruise lines.

Good Luck.  I always wear a skimpy bikini on cruise ships and have never had a problem, but thongs may be a different matter.  I have done it several times, but only at fairly "off" times when there were only a few others around.  If you are inclined to try, you might have better luck in the hot tub, rather than in the pool.  Let us know how it goes.

In early Sept wife and I went to Alaska on the Coral Princess.  I wore thongs at both the indoor and outdoor pools with no problems.  I did get some looks walking from the pool to hot tubs, but no comments.  This was a cruisetour, so I felt equally comfortable thonging at the Princess Lodges.  This was a terrific vacation, relaxing and no worries!

Thanks for the response, I will probably wear my Pistol Pete yellow bikini with 1.5" side as the skimpest suit.  I probably will not thong.  I do have speedos with 2" sides.   I am going in May, so shouldnt have a lot of kids on board.  I perfer to travel at off seasons.   I have been to Puerto Vallarta, and to the beach at the Blue Chair Hotel, I know I can get away with a skimpy suit there.  Last time, I only saw one guy in a thong, but many bikinis and square cut suits

Goodythonger:
We went on a 10 day Mexican Riviera cruise 2 years ago out of San Diego on Holland America Lines.  Most of the time, on board and on land, I wore a women's pink bikini bottom with 1" sides.  The only comment I heard was from one woman,"nice suit".  Holland America seems to cater to"over 55" people.  There were only about 10 teenagers on the ship.

You know with the economy hurting so much you'd think that someone would pick up on a unique sunbathing experience for a cruiseship.

There are still some daytrip ships out of florida for instance that are gambling boats- several have gone bankrupt.  Many are smaller cruiseships some down to 100-150 feet- but most have upper decks and many pools as they were once real cruiseships.  There are also other cruises to "no where" that return at the end of the day.

They could set it up to have  a deck or the pool clothing optional or topless and get some additional customers each day-- all you'd need is sun some water and a bar at sea and you'd have a party.  The legal aspects wouldn't be a problem as the gambling is only allowed offshore too.

hey all,
What is the concensus? Are there any rules? Has anyone worn a thong and  not been asked to cover up? I wear a WW 449 bottom and a matching tri top that covers my breasts almost like a regular bikini top would. I have been looking for info on cruises and thongs here and cant seem to locate any. I have been on here for a while but dont get on the board frequently enough to know my way around. sorry if this is in the wrong place.

I believe the Tripadvisor cruise forum is the best place to get a fast answer on thongs tolerance on cruise ships. I do know from a friend that her cruise ship this year had an adult pool only on an upper deck where she was able to thong. I can't confirm the cruise line or anything else. Do try posting on this forum to find out what other's experiences have been.

Some Norwegian Cruise Lines ships have a "freestyle" sundeck where full nudity is allowed so I am sure that thong wearing would be acceptable there even if not elsewhere on the ship.  Not all NCL vessels have a freestyle deck though so it would be advisable to check the deck plans before you book to ensure they have a freestyle deck to sun in your thong. Even NCL's own Q&A section highlights this deck. 

I was on Carnival a few years ago and wore a thong on their adults only sundeck with no problems at all. maybe their policy has changed since then.

I also like the adult area - to be away from the kids! Love my kids - but would like to take the cruises to get away from them!

 My wife and I have enjoyed sailing in the Caribbean and Mediterranean aboard the clipper ships operated by StarClippers.com, a very classy, international outfit, and quite reasonably priced.  Plenty of speedos and bikinis among our fellow passengers, though I've been the only thonger on deck and at beach stops on the cruises we've taken.  In Europe, one woman went topless.  Great social interaction among the 100+ passengers, and I've never felt shunned for being odd man out.  That said, I hesitate to don my favored g-strings except in more private settings along the way.  Bottom line:  if you're into luxury sailing and want to thong, check this cruise line out.

Went on a Princess cruise from Vancouver to Alaska.  Thonged at the indoor and outdoor pools several times without any nasty looks or comments. I don't think they care.  I don't know about topless, but I would go ahead and thong and see what happens.

Check out Star Clippers - Royal Clipper.  With mostly European passangers and stops at islands that have nude beaches, I  am hoping that thongs or skimpy will be the norm on board.

 Royal Clipper out of Barbados last January visited no islands with nude beaches, though Star Clipper out of St Martin on a previous cruise stopped at St Barts.  Another time I'd rent a scooter and head to the south shore to visit the two gorgeous c/o beaches there (visited them many times during a subsequent week-long stay on the island).  I was the only thonger aboard the Clippers and became quite comfortable so attired on deck and at beach stops.  Speedos, bikinis and international flair, yes, but don't be surprised if you're the only thonger.  Still, you can do it, and you'll be okay if you don't get ostentatious about it, i.e., I wouldn't wear a string or anything provocative.
