Default Fans?

Hi,
We will be sailing on VOS in April and i was wondering, are there fans available for the cabins? My husband sleeps with a fan 365 days a year, mostly for the sound, but he likes the breeze as well. Should we bring one along or are they aavailable on the ship?
Please let me know,
Thanks,
Gina

Bring one. My wife is the same and she always brings her own portable ones. Yes you can often obtain one on the ship but they are very limited in numbers and not readily available without a very good reason.

We've also found a sound machine works for the white noise and is easier to pack.

The sound machine wouldn't work for him.. He actually packed a window fan (not a small portable) and flew with it to Georgia for the Super Bowl. You had to see the looks he got going through securtiy. He has serious issues with the fan thing. 7 nights without one could be devasting. I thinkg I'll go with Jim's advice and pack a portable.
Thanks for the help.
Gina

My husband and I are the same way. We packed ours on our cruise to Alaska last year. No problems. It fit in one of our suitcases.

You might also just pick up a small fan when you arrive at your departure port...or even at the first port of call. Saves on packing space. You can leave it in your cabin, and let the room steward have it, instead of taking it home.
