Nude cruise ship launches

Nude cruise ship launches

See it all out at sea…

British small-ship cruising company eWaterways claims to be the first liner to offer an all-nude cruise in the Adriatic Sea.

The eight-day naturist cruise in August 2011 is a natural fit for the Croatian coastline and Dalmatian Islands, an eWaterways spokeswoman told the UK's Telegraph newspaper.

"Naturist holidays are popular and Croatia has a lot of nudist beaches — so it's a great match," she said. "Passengers will get undressed for swimming and sunbathing, but will be clothed for dinner." No worrying about dining room hygiene then!

Apparently Germans and other liberal Europeans are the target market for the cruise — and eWaterways patrons are generally in their mid-40s. But of course, anyone with an open mind and a hankering for letting it all loose is welcome aboard (and the rate is remarkably cheap — about $800!).

It's the latest in a long line of niche cruising options around the world, from cougar cruises to Elvis, ABBA and singles-only cruises.

If you're more of a go-nude-on-dry-land type, these Aussie nudist resorts and beaches provide a lot more than just the bare necessities:

Ugh! 99.9% of nudists are fat, overweight hippies, so the idea of "hanging" out with the nudies doesn't appeal at all!!
They've been running for years, but not on such a grand scale...
