Default Clothing Optional Deck on Carnival

We have been on Celebrity Cruise before and they offer a clothing optional deck. Do all Carnival ships offer the same "European" sun-tanning area?

If you tell us which ship you are looking at, we can tell you whether or not it still has an "unofficial" one.

I don't think Carnival ever had a 'clothing optional' deck, topless only.

Sorry, the "topless" deck on the Freedom has a mini-putt.

Even though Carnival pools are unheated, I was in fact referring to golf.

thanks,
It no longer has a privacy screen, is marked "21 and older only" and was overrun with running teenagers on my cruise.

Default Topless deck

The topless deck was the only way I could get my husband go on another cruise. Glad we booked prior to him finding out that Carnival had eliminated this deck. Oh well, maybe we can go to a beach on St Maarteen. Thanks for the info.
