Richard-Super idea about collecting the tops!!! I hope the new Gem will have the same feature-The view on sea days should be awesome!!

I'm also wondering just how much research Lisa P did??

Don't you just love a cruise!!

Bon Voyages

LOL! It was 100% secondary research this time -- although I am always willing to visit a ship to find out for myself.

Richard, it's possible the deck wasn't yet used for this purpose back in February.
Happy cruising!

Just to add a little to the probability of the freestyle deck. I can personally confirm an adults only (top optional) deck on Celebrity Galaxy. It is the top forward sun deck. It was lightly used but tops were off (male and female) by about 10 or so folks at a time.

Just back off the NCL Pearl today......

Freestyle Deck Update.....

There is an area on Deck 15 named Freestyle Deck....

There is a walkway from deck 14 up to the Freestyle Deck.

There is free access for passengers of all ages...no gates....there is NO signage stating "adults only"...or "clothing optionable area".

On a nice sunny day like this past Wednesday, there were no passengers using this area for topless sunbathing...either men or women.

In fact the area was used on this past trip for an observation deck by every passenger I saw there, during the 4 day adventure.

The Freestyle Deck is small, and is the same deck that you will find the mast of the ship, radar towers and flag towers.

To us, the Freestyle Deck was just another deck at the highest elevation of the ship, open to passengers of all ages, with no blocked access, and no passengers are prohibited from entering this area.

Hopefully this post answers the myth about a topless or nude area on the Pearl.

In fact, several women were sited on the pool Deck 12 and Deck 13, sunbathing while lying on their stomachs without tops.

Sorry guys, no special sites to see on Freestyle Deck. It's a great observation deck, but certainly may not provide what you really might want to see.

The repo cruise was great. We enjoyed every minute of it.

Lots to do, in just 4 days.

Perhaps we will need further reconissence from other passengers to see if this myth is real or not.

So far, I am a mythbuster on this one.

Sorry guys and gals.

Hate to burst your bubble on being a myth buster...but it is a topless deck. I am a member of cruise critic message boards and the topic has been discussed on several threads. It does exist. I am looking forward to it.

Hello JWestShuh, welcome to Cruise-Chat. You seem to be determined to see something you probably won't. Maybe if you're on a European cruise, but I, like Richard, have never seen topless as you're referring to. Perhaps this was the original intent for naming it the "Freestyle" deck, but cruising has become a major family vacation thing. If you find what you're looking for, let us know.

I hope you don't lean over too far to look onto the verandas while doing your research into mythbusting. I would hate to hear you've fallen overboard!

I never visited the topless deck on Carnival when they had them, but I have come across nude beaches on my travels and if my conclusions from those episodes hold true for cruise ships, then most of the people that like to be au natural have no business doing so in a public place. In fact I'd say most ought to be ticketed for creating visual pollution!
