2,000 nudists and one textile young woman on a 13 deck, 75,000 ton cruise ship sailing from Shanghai to Bangkok, with stops in China and Vietnam. On the itinerary are such activities as swimming, miniature golf, karaoke, checkers. See a Las Vegas-style musical stage show, eat in several award-winning international restaurants, pamper yourself in the luxury spa, exercise in the state of the art fitness center ... all completely naked. What happens when a shy young woman who was always taught to be ashamed of her body finds herself on a cruise ship full of nudists enjoying the sun and water and letting it all hang out? An excerpt: The people on that cruise have the ability to see nudity in a naturally incent way, the way most children do before we are all told that nude is lewd. As a dancer, I can relate to that. I think we are all natural born dancers, but at some point in our childhood we are told to grow up and stop moving with natural joy. Most people forget how to dance and even professional dancers have to be trained all over again. We talked and laughed, swam and played games, all completely naked. None of them ticed all the flaws I see in my body and one laughed at anybody for being imperfect. When everybody is naked, one cares about perfection. I was on a ship with 2,000 nudists. All of them were beautiful.
