Re: hand sanitizers
the hand sanitizers are great to have. I bought my own before I went on my December 2003 cruise. I used it before and after eating, at the casino and everytime I used the restrooms (used after you wash hands). You can get the same hand santizer at a drug store. They carry large bottles and small bottles you can carry in your pocket/purse. I keep a bottle in my desk here at work.

When I was on our cruise in December there were several people who came down with a virus. I carried that sanitizer every where I went. It is worth spending the money on. It is call Purell Hand sanitier. It kills 99% of germs.

Yes I use the hand sanitizers and carry one in my purse. I am wondering if the carnival cruise lines has free standing portable sanitizers. Ncl had these free standing machines before entering the buffet. It was great because every passenger cleaned their hands before entering the buffet. dee

Re: hand sanitizers
I always carry hand sanatizers with me. On a cruise it works great when shopping. You get that dirty feeling on your hands and no where to wash your hands. Of course washing hands is the best bet. But for when you cant always carry some sanitizer with you. Keep everyone healthy as possible.... Happy cruising..

Re: hand sanitizers
I was recently on the Carnival Glory and there were no hand sanitizers.
Get a small bottle to carry in your pocket / purse. I know a good washing with soap and warm water is better but anything with 99% alcohol has got to be a big help.
Remember, besides the serving spoons in the buffet areas that are handled by everyone, the menus, salt & pepper shakers, etc. in the dining rooms are handled over and over without being cleaned.
