What is Proper Nude Cruise Etiquette?

Proper nude cruise etiquette involves 3 basic rules. First, always carry a towel at all times. A towel should always be used to cover the area where you are placing either your buttocks or genitals. Do this not only for sanitary reasons, but also to show respect to your fellow passengers. Also, the towel will allow gentlemen to cover their "excitement" at certain times such as in the presence of large groups. Second, full nudity is not allowed in all areas of the ship. Some areas are clothing optional, while other ones, such as the dining room, require you to wear clothes. Third, make sure to find out about the dressing rules of resorts and shores before leaving the ship.
