Of course, mistakes can be made anywhere so I don't begrudge anyone checking. On my RCL Freedom OTS cruise this past week, our robes were delivered to the room neatly folded with the belt tied around the bundle. I had no doubt it was freshly laundered.
So, you take a cruise, and your robes came neatly folded and tied. Well, what does that have to do with a robe hanging in a closet ? Hardly the same now is it ? If your profile of one cruise is correct, then, IMHO, you don't know of which you speak. Trust the company to give a clean robe ? All the lines have been cutting back everywhere. Curious, what category cabin did you have that you got a nice folded robe ? A suite of some sort ? So, if you think I was wasteful and disrespectful ( to whom I wonder ), too bad. For all I know someone wore that robe out of the shower three weeks ago and hung it up in the closet. The steward never knew so he left it there. Or, maybe all cabins get fresh robes each week. I have no way of knowing, so, I toss it down and ask for a new one. The steward doesn't care, he doesn't wash them. And he gets tipped to bring us fresh towels, etc.
