Exploration at sea includes naked bodies — if you book a nudist cruise. These sailings are advertised as an opportunity to let it all hang out – or not. Clothing-optional sailings don’t require you to be completely naked. It’s your choice whether to cover up.

The sailings do include all sorts of rules. You must be clothed in the dining rooms, for instance.

Do not expect a ship full of bodies beautiful. Nude sailings are for adults of all ages, shapes, and sizes.

Nude cruises are not about sex, they are about body acceptance. So, don’t confuse clothing-optional cruises with couples-only swinger’s cruises, which typically are clothing optional.

If You’re Unvaccinated, You’ll Be Banned From These Destinations in 2 Weeks

The continued spread of the Delta variant has managed to erase months of progress by causing COVID-19 to surge again—especially among the unvaccinated.

European Shares Rise on Evergrande Relief, Ahead of Fed Meeting | Investing News

By Sruthi Shankar and Shreyashi Sanyal

(Reuters) -European stocks rose on Wednesday after debt-laden developer China Evergrande said it would make some interest payments, while investors awaited a signal from the U.S. Federal Reserve on how and when it will rein in its massive stimulus.

Evergrande’s Frankfurt-listed shares jumped 41.0% after hitting multi-year lows in the previous session.

The property developer said it would make a coupon payment on its domestic bonds, offering relief to investors worried about payments default following financial troubles.

“It’s been another positive session for European stocks, as concerns about fallout from Evergrande continue to diminish, after this morning’s agreement on some of its domestic bond coupons,” said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets.

“Despite this little wrinkle, markets appear to be working on the assumption that the problem has been contained, let’s hope they are right.”
