Robes in Cabins

On Princess, there is a box to check when you fill out your online information as to whether or not you want a robe - no extra charge. Do other lines charge for this!?

I always check the box because I do not pack a robe and after the last Room Evacuation, I was glad to have it. (I saw so many people running around in very odd pjs that I wished they had a robeWink)

Is a robe something you want and/or request?

We got clean ones from our room steward... had to ask for them, but that's OK. We did not hang them in the closet when we left, so the next occupant will get clean ones as well.

No racing stripes here. Regarding dirty bathrobes left over from previous guests. We just got off a 29 dayer on Princess two weeks ago. When we arrived at our cabin we noticed no bathrobes. When our Steward showed I mentioned the absence of bathrobes but we had checked the box for two. He said, yes he knows that and as soon as the ship's laundry finishes up with them he will bring ours. What happens he said, is that Princess takes all bathrobes to the laundry as soon as leaving guests disembark. In this case it was almost the entire passenger complement that got off, so the laundry service was temporarily overwhelmed. He indicated that was the practice as long as he had been steward.

Had exact experience on the Royal Princess in Nov. when we did 24 days ...

I would have thought that was what all ships did, just like changing all the bedding and towels.

Having observed the changeover on the 3 B2Bs, I think the effort is amazing how fast and efficiently they turn out the cabins. That said, the remote possibility a dirty robe was overlooked could exist but the chances are slim to none.

On my cruises, robes are always inside the wardrope when we board the ship. I only use mine after a shower. I would feel weird walking around the ship in a public are wearing one although I often see passengers wearing them to the spa or to the pool. sometimes i see them at breakfast. Good point though about a mandatory evacuation from your cabin in the middle of the night. I could see a use for being able to grab that quickly. I would always request one if the option was offered.

I like the Robes for inside the cabin only

They can very versatile. Bath rodes, during cold weather I've seen them used as coats, or as a useful item for shielding for amore' get togethers.

Hmmm I thought that's what the Movies Under the Stars blankets were for ....
