Default Topless Sunbathing Deck on Silhouette?

I know Millenium and Constellation had a small upper deck where topless sunbathing was permitted. Is there any such area on the "S" class ships?

Sorry, none. In fact, they removed the signs for this area on the Millennium; not sure about the Constellation?

Although it was not marked as such, I have seen topless sunbathers on the Solstice Deck on both the Solstice and the Eclipse recently.

We were on the Connie for the first 2 weeks of December and the sign was still there. Only problem was the wind that high up on the front of the ship. Could almost blow your top off any way and of course you could use that as an excuse if any one says anything about being topless.

I wish they would do away with the topless sunbathing. I like to get on the top deck with my binoculars and look for dolphins, islands, etc. and the sunbathers are always in the way.

Happy Sails to You

Are you sure you're taking the binoculars up there to watch the whales?

Oh I have on the Eclipse, in fact why not? There are some very fit young women on board and if they don't mind then why should I ? Though they were all laying face down, however they had to get up at some point.

As a wise man once said, "You've seen two, you've seem them all."

I'm at that age where seeing a topless sunbather doesn't affect me any more. Of course, it doesn't affect me any less...

We're all mature adults, here. Really we are.

A favorite quote from Woody Allen's "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask" takes a slightly different twist on that quote: "If you've seen one, you've seen them both".

Since you've killed that rumor, it will seriously impact my exercise plan, as I was going to jog up the steps every 15 minutes to check out the scenery. Now, I guess I'll just flag down the waiter for another pina collada.

For our first “down under” visit, Jan. 20-Feb. 3, 2014, Celebrity Solstice sailing, departing Sydney, going from Australia to Auckland/NZ doing 14 days on this ship we loved in the Med in June 2011, I will be looking for this sign. Plus, taking my bi-noc and checking things out to see if the topless reports are correct and current. Got to be a good reporter for activities on this ship.

THANKS! Enjoy! Terry in Ohio


Did a June 7-19, 2011, Celebrity Solstice cruise from Barcelona that had stops in Villefranche, ports near Pisa and Rome, Naples, Kotor, Venice and Dubrovnik. Enjoyed great weather and a wonderful trip. Dozens of wonderful visuals with key highlights, tips, comments, etc., on these postings. We are now at 124,555 views for this live/blog re-cap on our first sailing with Celebrity and much on wonderful Barcelona. Check these postings and added info at:

I like Ron White's quote better. "Once you've seen one woman naked, you... wanna see the rest of 'em naked"

That said, lechery is what makes women feel uncomfortable in taking off their tops! Be polite and wear sunglasses
