Fortunately, people willing to walk around naked among 3, also-naked strangers tend not to shy away from delicate questions. So some adults-only cruisers gave Yahoo Travel the naked truth about letting it all hang out on the open seas. Not all naked cruises on the same.

Nancy believes the absence of physical barriers like clothing often le nude cruisers to shed their social barriers as well, leading to more emotionally intimate and lasting connections.
