I usually take two so I have one to wear while the other one is drying.

Agree about not wanting to put on a wet suit, but 2 or 3 depending on the itinerary is plenty.

I didn't take 8 bathing suits on my 115-day cruise. That seems like a lot. But take what you think that you need. If you spend much of your time poolside, maybe you need that many. I usually take 3 on a longer cruise and I rinse and dry on the retractable clothes line in the shower. I remove excess water with a bath towel before hanging the suit so it dries faster.

115 Days...WOW!!

2 at most regardless of sail days.

Either one or two, depending on my mood. If we plan a snorkel adventure I like to have an extra in case the first one doesn't dry. I'm not much of a "sun bather" any more.

Two. Wish I could find a nice skinny dipping island to go to in the Carib. Maybe Bak knows of one.

Saint Martin, the French side, has clothing optional beaches.
