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

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

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.

Thing of the past, used too be refered to as the Funnel Deck
