Do you pack and use slippers in ship cabin ?

I am curious if the majority of people pack and use slippers in the cabin or if they walk barefoot ? I can remember in the old days that they would shampoo the cabin carpets between each cruise (this was back in the early 90's on RCI Viking Serenade and Song of America out of San Pedro port of Los Angeles)

I used to pack slippers now I pack some water shoes that I use around the pool and for in cabin.

Yes. I bring slippers everywhere. They are like comfort food for the feet.....

No, but I go through a lot of socks.

I always pack slippers.

I always keep my flip flops just inside the door. Use them for both walking around the cabin (short walk) and showering!

Me or anyone in my family have never packed any sort of slippers or shower shoes. I might wear socks in the room due to my feet getting cold, not cause I'm worried about germs. I'd be more scared of germs in the swimming pools than in my stateroom.

One of my friends calls the hot tubs on ships, hotels and apartment complexes "People Soup"

I usually go barefoot in the cabin, but I do avoid the soupbowlsHappy

Me too.

No, I just wear socks or barefoot. Even out on our balcony.
