Can someone educate me on what the "freestyle deck" is on the NCL Pearl?

Hi tncruzin, and welcome to cruise-chat.

The Freestyle Deck on Norwegian Pearl (as well as some of the other newer NCL ships) is an adults-only sunning area...tops optional.

We have traveled the Pearl twice this year ...on Feb 2, 2007 .... 9-Day So Caribbean and to Alaska May 20th, 2007. We are Platinum Latitudes members the highest available and we know the ship very well. We will be back on the NCL Pearl Sept 24th, 2007 for our third cruise on the Pearl in 2007.

There is NO FREESTYLE DECK for nude or topless sunbathing. There is a private sundeck exclusively for the Garden Villa passengers up on Deck 14...not open to general passengers.

The idea of an NCL sponsored topless sun bathing deck is a myth. It does not exist. You will not find any mention of optional topless sunbathing on any NCL information within their website.

I have seen total nudity sunbathing on balcony room decks. But not decks open to the public.

So you shouldn't get to excited over the thought of topless sun decks on the Pearl. Your better off trying to find a nude beach somewhere.

On any sun deck you will find women topless, but lying on their stomachs not exposing any body parts.

There is NO adults only sunning area on the NCL Pearl as posted here.

Deck 15, forward, accessible only by a single, outdoor stairway. It's a small area, and very private. (I also can't imagine it getting much use in Alaska in May. )

Please know, everyone, that I never answer a question without researching it first.

I will follow up on Deck 15 and report back here with the real story. There is a Deck 15 shown on deck layout...Freestyle Deck.....will report back here after return of Sept 28th cruise. That will be the first place I visit on Tuesday, open sea day.....full sun......should be interesting to see what goes.

Sounds like I may have to stand corrected, but this post certainly requires a first hand look.

The obvious question is why would they give a deck the name of "freestyle"? The name seems to imply that this deck is different than the others in some way.

Billy:

Do you mean to collect the tops and bring them back?

Not sure if Mary will even touch this hot topic.

But I will check it out.......after Bliss Ultra Lounge, anything is possible on the Pearl. Don't know why I didn't discover this deck earlier especially on the 9 day Southern Caribbean trip in Feb 2007.

I think Lisa P is probably correct,(she's a cruise guru) but want to see for myself.
