It was posted I wonder with some of the things they did with this ship if the intent all along was to use the Jewel to reposition NCL in Europe again.

This link was posted about six weeks ago that included "and the adults-only Freestyle Sundeck occupies a private location forward on Deck 15."

I believe there was discussion on the thread that compared the Jewel and the Dawn. I think Splatitudes started it.

I sure missed it: as for me, I don't think my body and I would do too well on the clothing optional deck and I can guarantee you DH will not even know about this. LOL

Default Is this true?

Can anyone who has already been on the Jewel verify there is a clothing-optional sundeck? We have cruised on Carnival too many times just because they have a topless deck. (Some cruisers never even knew it exists) We are booked on the Jewel in November and January.

Well the website that I've linked in the OP is reputable! And NCL has advertised the sundeck as 'Adults Only'...

Default Clothing Optional Sundeck on Jewel

I suspect the decision to have such a sun deck on the Jewel has something to do with the fact she will be sailing in Europe every summer.

I just called NCL. After being on hold while Linda researched the subject for quite a long time, she came back with a consensus that indeed there is NOT a c/o sundeck on the Jewel. Hopefully, she is wrong. I told her if I get arrested for nude sunbathing on the ship, its all Shore Girl's fault.

Well, if it's anything like Carnival's sun deck - forget it. March 2004 we sailed the brand new Miracle (BIL's idea, not mine, ugh) and tried out the sundeck. Gross - I can't tell you how many men "wondered" up to that desk "lost" It wasn't even relaxing. Granted, you ask for some attention when lying out topless, but it was pretty ridiculous. No, it was actually creepy as some men would sit down and "read a book" and stare.... unfortunately one does not read a book looking away from it. Anyway, I've given up on sundecks. Perhaps cruisng Europe w/ a more European passender demo would be better!

LOL- I bet if you call back a few more times you will get a few different answers! Well if it's not clothing-optional/adults-only, then I suggest NCL better start contacting these websites that are advertising this. I'm going to search NCL's Press Releases on the Jewel to see if they say anything!
