They were the same prince on my cruise in December no matter when you purchased them. And that was either 39.99 or 49.99 sorry I can't recall which price (obviously I didn't purchase one, but I LOVED using theirs during the cruise)
I just dug out my invoice from the Carnival Pride's inaugural voyage, and I see that we paid $39.00. It is a wonderful robe. I used one on the cruise after every shower, and my husband loves the one we brought home.
I have booked an outside stateroom on the Paradise Main Deck and just got off the phone with Carnival Customer Service. They said there are no robes in this cabin. Robes are only found in the Suites. Also, there is no bathtub in the staterooms outside or inside. Showers only.
