Default BEACH TOWELS

Do you have to bring your own beach towels from home for your shore excursions or are you allowed to take one of the ships beach towels with you when you go ashore for an excursion? Beach towels would take up a lot of room in your suitcase. I hope I dont have to pack them.

I'm taking my own because I wouldn't be able to stand the bleach smell all day at the beach or pool. I can barely handle drying off with towels at hotels because the bleach is so strong and so nasty. Plus someone mentioned how easy it is to spot a big bright beach towel.

No, you don't have to pack any, they will provide them for the pool and to take on excursions, just make sure to return them, otherwise, you could get charged for them

Towels are provided. The night before you go to shore. They will put the towels in your room.

I brought my own. If you lose the towel or don't return it they charge you between $20-$25 per towel. I laid them flat in the bottom of the suitcase, put the clothes in on top and folded the ends over the top of the clothes. I found they didn't take up that much room.

We found beach towels at Walmart this weekend - very inexpensive - on sale for $2.50 each... needless to say, they are not thick and plush - but they are bright and pretty - and I figure for those shore excursions when I may not be able to"watch" the beach - if they disappear - no big deal. They aren't very thick, so they wont take much room -and at that price, I'm certainly not going to worry about bringing them home. I'll use the ships towels on the ship ....
