RE: Why Not Nude?

We are heading to a local resort this weekend (Berkshire Vista in
MA). They have a small restaurant with 15 or so tables, maybe 8
seats at the bar, and about 8 tables on a back deck. The deck is
usually 100% nude, which is where we go to eat dinner and
breakfast. Lunch is at a snack bar by the pool, so almost everyone
is nude. The dances on Friday and Saturday are majority clothed in
some way (including Mrs. J&C in her see-thru sarong), but I
still love to dance nude. As the night goes on if the room gets hot
enough more clothes come off, but it can get pretty cool in the
Berkshires at night so some are nude only during the day while
there. Dances are so much more fun when everyone is nude. There is
no subconscious grouping into who's nude and who's not. The dances
on the nude cruises usually start out mostly clothed (people have
to dress in the dining room anyway). But since the dances can run
to 2-3am, if you stay late enough the clothes come off there,
too.

RE: Why Not Nude?

The "nude" cruise is where we expected everyone to be nude most of the time (dinner excluded). We read about people hardly waiting for the announcement that the shore officials were off the boat and it was time to get naked. The reality wasn't quite that way. The 2016 cruise was on a Celebrity ship and that upscale line provided two bathrobes per cabin. Basically, the ship looked like a floating geriatric ward! It got so bad that Barry put up signs at the theater entrances saying "no bathrobes". They were largely ignored. (Carnival is hosting the cruise for the next two years and I don't believe they provide robes.) The pool deck was really the only place onboard where the majority were nude most of the time. After dinner, we dumped our clothes and went nude to the shows and then to the lounges and we were definitely in the minority.

Yes I remember the hoards of white robes walking around on the 2015 Cruise as well. Geriatric ward does describe that sight well.
If dances went till 2-3am we couldn't tell you. We can't make it past 11pm these days.

We can't make it past 11pm these days.I had the misfortune of being sick as a dog for about four of the ten days of the cruise in 2016. At our stop in San Juan my only activity was to head for a drug store to stock up on meds. My dance card for the 2-3 am shift was definitely empty. Even after I recovered I didn't stay up much past 11. On debarkation day I overheard someone talking about everyone being naked at the dances the night before. Not going on the 2017 cruise, but we've already booked 2018. I'm thinking of pre-medicating for that one. Gotta say though, dancing naked is one of the greatest pleasures in life.

The only time I saw lots of robes that cruise was the last night down by the Atrium bar. Some kind of tradition we heard about, so we joined in. We did hear there were lots at the shows in the theater, but we don't really go to the theater that often on cruises. In 2015 (same ship as 2016), I don't remember that many bathrobes at all, but I guess it depends on where you are on the ship. We were at the aft bar on the Lido deck as we were sailing out of port, and there were a few getting naked while we were still in the Ft. Lauderdale channel, before any announcement could have come. We did go to the theater for the comedian in 2015 and saw some robes, but there were nude folks as well. Both were the minority to those who were dressed. I'm with you, the clothes come off right after dinner before we head to the nightclub. We generally skip the shows and get some pool/hot tub time before the dances start.

Why not nude in nude venue

Yes. I have the same feeling about being pressured to dine dressed at a nudist facility. If I am persistant i will carry out all my meals naked, even when there are performing acts. I come there for the 24/7 nude experience.

But when I do I am always in the minority, sometimes you get some followers when you keep coming naked.

Must be plenty of reasons to get dressed but maybe a napkin on your naked lap, is not naked either?
