I'm pretty sure you read that from me. I do like to bring my own pillow along because I also prefer down feather pillow for my head and it is much easier to bring it along (it packs down almost flat in one of those space packing bags you roll the air out of) then to hope one is in our room when we arrive on the ship. We haven't had any horrible pillows on the ships we have been on but it is hit or miss whether it is flat or fluffy. I make sure to put my pillow into an idenifiable pillow case so it doesn't get mixed up with the ship's stuff. Good feather pillows aren't cheap.
