The most luxurious nude cruise experience is making its way to Australia’s shores aboard the six-star luxury yacht Scenic Eclipse II. Bare Necessities, renowned for its nude cruises, has chartered this exquisite vessel for a breathtaking journey through the Great Barrier Reef and Vanuatu.

Departing on October 26, 2025, from Cairns, this two-week roundtrip cruise has already garnered significant interest from Australians. Since the cruise became available for booking in early September, 56 out of 114 cabins have been sold, with six of them claimed by Aussies. Bare Necessities promises an “unquestionably” luxurious experience, unlike any other nude cruise.

Guests who have previously sailed with Bare Necessities praise the unique atmosphere and rules that apply to such voyages. With a light-hearted approach, they emphasise the importance of maintaining decorum and humorously suggest methods to handle any “excitement” that may arise.

“Men can’t be overly excited. We say that if they start to feel things around moving down there, jump in cold water. Or think about baseball.”

Nude cruising with the Bare Necessities

Bare Necessities has a track record of chartering large ships, including the Carnival Pride and Norwegian Pearl, and now the Scenic Eclipse II. This upcoming cruise from Cairns promises the same level of luxury expected from Scenic, combined with a festive ambience. Guests will enjoy a sailaway party before exploring destinations such as Magnetic Island, Airlie Beach, Capricorn Cays in Queensland, and ports in New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

The Scenic Eclipse II boasts a plethora of amenities and expedition resources, from a submarine and Zodiacs to butler service for every guest and a luxurious spa and wellness facility.

With bookings filling up fast, it’s no surprise that the bottom four suite categories are already sold out. The remaining suites, starting from $16,750 for the Grand Deluxe Verandah Suite, offer exceptional value for an unforgettable experience. Suite categories extend to the lavish Owner’s Penthouse, priced at $50,770.
