Most of the guests on this cruise are light, very light.

It’s run by Bare Necessities Tour & Travel, which encourages guests to undress, but issues some guidelines.

One rule is that “excessive lingerie, fetish clothing and genital jewelry” are prohibited, as is nudity when the ship is docked and during meals in the dining rooms.

Guests should also ensure that when sitting on a towel or item of clothing, they are “naked or in a thong or g-string.”

The Bare Necessities Tour & Travel website adds that this rule applies “everywhere…in your cabin, on the pool deck, in the buffet area, in all places on board and even on excursions” .

And he emphasizes: “Social nudity is not a sexual activity, and we work to dispel the misconception that it is anything but natural and beautiful.”

The next nudist cruise – billed as The Big Nude Boat – will depart in February 2025 from Miami to Mexico aboard the Norwegian Pearl. Tickets start at $2,000 (£1,578). For more information, visit cruisebare.com/cruises.
