With our American cousins having recently celebrated National Nude Day on July 14th, Carnival cruise lines have just announced some fantastic news. The Big Nude Boat 2021 will be expanding its nude cruise to a full two weeks, offering more attire free fun in the waters of the Caribbean!
For nudists, this is certainly a bonus I’m sure you’ll agree. According to information, the Big Nude Boat 2021 will sail the waters of the Caribbean in its 31st edition from Feb 14, 2021. The cruise organizer is Bare Necessities Tours, who have been specialising in organising clothing free holidays for the last 30 years.
The extended cruise on Carnival Legend will allow more time in the sun, more skinny dipping in the crystal waters of the Caribbean and unlimited nude fun aboard. Nudists believe that the human body is beautiful on its own and clothes perpetuate artificial social boundaries.
According to the available schedule, the Big Nude Boat will depart from Tampa on February 14, 2021, and stops will include Mahogany Bay, Cartagena, Colon, Curacao, San Juan, Bonaire, and Nassau. There will be plenty of sea days before coming back to Tampa on February 28th.
Bare Necessities cruises mission statement, according to the website is as follows. “Bare Necessities aim is to provide relaxing, health-conscious holiday opportunities in non-threatening, natural environments where the appreciation and compatibility of nature and the unadorned human form can occur.”
Nude cruises are part of a travel trend called ‘Nakations’. Bare Necessities Tour & Travel based in Austin, Texas has years of experience, they have in fact been providing the service since 1991 for travellers seeking clothing-optional holidays.
On the first cruise, there were only 36 tourists. But in 2013, the number zoomed and it hired the 3000 capacity Carnival Freedom and named it Big Nude Boat. Nude cruising, it is claimed, offers more freedom and unbridled happiness as a fountain of the ‘au natural’ experience.
However, Bare Necessities do have strict guidelines on decorum. It is mandatory for cruisers to carry a towel to sit on surfaces with, appropriate dress is a must for dining and also while entering a port of call for sightseeing. No photo or video shoot will be allowed in ‘no photo zones’ without permission and nude tourists should not engage in public sexual activity.
Well, I don’t know about you, but next time I want to go on holiday to appreciate the unadorned human form and enjoy the freedom and unbridled happiness of the ‘au natural’ experience, I’ll know exactly where to go!
Bye for now.
