Default robes

OK. I am surprised that I have not read this before but I really must ask. On all of the ocean view rooms on the victory they say that you have the use of a robe. You can buy it if you want to. What do they do with the robes that people have worn and did not buy?? Is that the robes we are wearing?????? I really pray that they are new robes.

i imagine they do wash them. i strongly doubt they use robes for one week and then dispose of the to give everyone new robes...that would be like using a brand new set of sheets for a new group of passengers...too much money....i think they just wash them.

Sure - just like in a hotel. We recently stayed at the Bellagio in Vegas and had robes in our room that were for sale in the gift shop for over $300!! I am sure they just wash them and hang them up for the next folks.

Granted, I wouldn't want to buy a used robe but there's no big deal with just wearing one. After all, my face would be all over a pillowcase every night that a thousand people have used before. And who knows what people have done in the sheets. Compared to that, a robe is no big deal! What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, lol.

The robes tend to disappear the last night so they can be washed for the next guests.

I always found that to be a bummer.....on the last night when you NEED a robe (all of your other clothes is out in the hallway in your suitcase!) you have no robe to use! I always make my husband go out & put the bags out....haha....

My robe didn't disappear.

The morning we returned to port on the Carnival Miracle, I woke up early to watch the sunrise and see the ship barely scrape by under the Dames Point Bridge in Jax. I knew it would be chilly on deck, so I wrapped one of the Carnival robes around me before I left my cabin.

Okay so are these puffy robes or thin ones? White? Carnival logo? Short? Long? Worth paying for? How much, by the way? Just curious. I didn't have a robe question before I read this post.

Thanks.

Default Re: robes

The old robes are laundered, and if someone requests to purchase , a new robe is provided -at least this is my experience from the hotel industry. We did however charge full price when someone's robe was not in the room at check-out. In fact we had to put signs in the closet warning about leaving your robe unattended at the spa and the resulting "liability"-it was strange how many guests asked how much the robes were and upon finding out had theirs "mysteriously walk away" while in the hot tub).

They are nice long, puffy, white robes w/the Carnival logo, but I don't remember the price...maybe someone just returning from a cruise can help w/that?

Happy Cruising!
