Big Nude Boat 2022

Conquering the Caribbean on our 75th charter!

This cruise is one to check off your Bare Bucket List!


On the last day of every cruise, what we hear most from our Bare Cruisers is that time really flew by. Everyone asks whether they could stay aboard a little longer and the answer has always been no… until now.  You asked and we answered. For our 75th charter Bare Necessities is happy to announce a one-of-a-kind two-week cruise aboard the Carnival Pride! With an exclusive port, a brand-new itinerary that includes Colón, Cartagena and San Juan, passengers have the opportunity to encompass every corner of the Caribbean – all with the added bonus of six lazy days at sea to relax onboard…au naturel!

Passengers have requested longer cruises and many have extended their vacation by taking an admittedly less fun textile cruise before or after our charter. European and Aussie travelers have said the want longer cruises to make flying across the pond or from down under truly worthwhile. This cruise is the answer to everyone who has said they wanted more!  More time in the sun, more crystal clear warm water for skinny dipping, more interesting ports of call, more sea days to soak up some rays and more fun aboard a ship that is a passenger favorite: the sleek, fast, over-the-top Carnival Pride.

Join us for an epic journey on the Big Nude Boat 2022, make a multitude of new bare friends and enjoy the ultimate in Bare Cruising.

Clothes-free, child-free and carefree once again aboard a Bare Necessities cruise.  What could be better than that?



The Ship


Carnival Pride is the second ship in the Spirit Class which includes the Miracle and the Legend. Spirit Class ships are identical in layout and design, but differ in decor. The ship’s theme is “Icons of Beauty” and among her many classic nude statues and paintings we’ll feel right at home. The last time we were aboard the Pride was for the “Dare to Bare” charter in 2017, one of our favorite cruises. The Pride has received the Fun Ship 2.0 makeover as well as a recent refurbishment in 2019.

The choices for dining aboard include the Art Deco inspired main dining room, zen-like Bonsai sushi, and David’s specialty steakhouse at the top of the ship with a 12 foot tall reproduction of the statue of David waiting to greet you. Choices for dining au naturel include the Mermaid’s Grill on the Lido Deck with lovely mermaid statues adorning the walls, the incredibly popular Guy’s Burger Joint, and the deliciously spicy BlueIguana Cantina. Enjoy specialty coffees, 24-hour pizza and ice cream, or find something sweet at Cherry on Top.

Skinny-dip in the pools and soak in the hot tubs. Enjoy a movie under the stars at the Seaside Theater. Get lost in a good book, or just one another’s company, at the Serenity retreat. Take a ride on the waterslides. Music lovers join the sing-alongs in the Piano Bar and don’t miss the lavish song and dance performances in the Main Theater. Dance the night away at Beauties Dance Club and enjoy live music performances all around the ship. Cap off the evening with laughter at the Comedy Club. Activities abound aboard Carnival Pride.

This ship is sleek, fast, and with it’s daring decor Carnival Pride is the perfect fit for our bare cruise. We are proud to announce she will be home for our one-of-a-kind epic two-week journey. Carnival’s staff and crew are the best and we can bare-ly wait to see them again in 2022!


Carnival Pride is 88,500 tons with a guest capacity of 2,124. It is one of six ships built with the Panamax design that allows passage through the Panama Canal. The Pride was Carnival’s flagship for many years.
