I have to agree with borntocruise, I too like they paper towels but notice that many places have gone to the blow-dryer to eliminate the paper towel mess and is supposed to be more sanitary. Hello? Those used towels should still be somewhat clean as they are used to wipe your hands after you wash them? <G> IMHO it may be more costly but I personally would rather have the paper towels. As for your cold, if it showed up less than 48 to 72 hours after you borded you propbably picked it up before you got on the ship. Airplanes for those that fly are horrible places to pick up colds.
