World's Biggest Nudist Cruise Ship Superbowl Party Ever

Sunday, February 04, 2007

What do you get when you put 1,200 nudists on a cruise ship in the Caribbean during the SuperBowl? Simple. The World's biggest nudist SuperBowl party.

Chicago Bears? No. Chicago Bares.

I just received this dispatch from Mike who's aboard the The M/S Holland America Maasdam right now. This M/S Holland America Maasdam cruise is one of the big nude cruises I mentioned during my post about 2007 nude cruises. Here's the scoop:

Aboard The M/S Holland America Maasdam - Somewhere east of Cuba (February 4, 2007) -- Our first day at sea was fine with warm, sunny weather, slight seas and a beautiful ship to call our home for the next ten days. Setting out from Port Everglades on Saturday evening, our ship slid past other giants of the sea, no doubt setting out on their own Caribbean vacation adventures. But ours alone carried a passenger compliment of some 1,200 nudists and naturists from all over the world, on the latest mid-Winter nude cruise chartered by Bare Necessities Tour and Travel of Austin Texas.

This is our tenth nude cruise with BNT&T, and the "smallest large ship" we've been on in a while. Although the Maasdam is considered 'old' by modern cruise ship standards at just 13 years, she is very, very comfortable, fast, and luxuruious. The staff, crew and officers so far have been wonderfully accomodating, both enjoying our charter and adapting to what could be a huge shock for what is normally a ship patronized by the older and definitely more textile-compulsive set.

Being a 10-day cruise, setting out just a month after the Christmas and New Year's holidays, our shipmates are skewing a little older than usual for a BNT&T mid-winter cruise. Many younger people can't get away for nearly two full weeks at a time owing to job and family responsibilities, so we are meeting many older (retired and nearly retired) cruisers enjoying the Maasdam with us. That matters little to our enjoyment of the fun, which is hard not to have when surrounded by so many free-spirited and unpretentious folks.

Tonight is the big SuperBowl Party, with the main show lounge turned into a giant sports bar for the game, and a crowd expected to number in the many hundreds of nude sports fans enjoying the big-screen telecast. Other bars and lounges on the ship will have their TVs set to the game as well, and we expect a very fun and spirited evening of football madness. We'll be wearing our Chicago Bears jerseys (and nothing else!) for the game -- GO BEARS!

This dispatch is courtesy of the very reliable and easy-to-use Wi-Fi network aboard the ship. We expect to have daily e-mail access while on the trip, so if all goes well, our trusty Apple Powerbook G4 and the Maasdam's satellite Intenet link will bring (hopefully) daily reports as the cruise progresses.

Thanks Mike for thinking of the Nudist Travel Guide blog. I wish I was there. Instead, I'm up north in 30 degree weather.

1200 nudists in one swimming pool??? We prefer a smaller boat and a bigger pool: our swimming pool ist the Adriatic. See our completely new site about the nudist cruises in Croatia:
Welcome on board of MS Toma, for a 15 days holiday in the nude!
