Default Air Freshener...

A few people have mentioned it, but no one has sad why. Is there poor air circulation in the cabins or something?

Thanx,
Krunch

Some of the cabins may not smell as "fresh" as you may want. We found that one of the plug-ins with a nite lite gives you both a nite lite and air freshener. The cabins can get quite dark, especially if you are in an inside cabin. Of course, you can leave the light on in the bathroom as a nite lite and use a traditional air freshener. Take a can of Lysol or other spray air freshener. Lysol makes a travel size. Lysol combats the noro virus and useful in the bathroom, also (where you may really need to freshen the air !) Got those tips off of this forum, by the way!

It is due to smokers stinking up the cabin. If you take carpet fresh and some airfresh it will help out a lot. Maybe spray the drapes with febreeze. If it remains bad, ask for a new comforter and new drapes. That is where the problem usually lies.

We took a battery powered one, it’s a new kind that puts a puff a fragrant in the air every 30 secs or so. It made a huge difference. I am an odor person and it seems like there is no air circulation in there. Next time I'll bring one for the bath, there always seemed to be a slight sewage smell in there.

We have been doing this for a few years now. I used to bring one of those Renuzit's gel types where the lid twists high and low. They are good for 30 days so at the end of the cruise we just close it, pack it and finish it at home. The last 2 times I bought one of those Glade Glass scents, a pretty little glass square. Put it in a bagging to bring home and finish. I love the rain fresh and hide them in a corner. Even the cabin attendant loved them.

do you still suggest a room deoderiser if you have a balcony cabin [fresh airflow]?

Only once (on the Sensation) did we notice an odor in the room and it was cured by closing the bathroom door when not in use. Several others at our dinner table had the same problem. Like I said, in that case it was easily solved and the Sensation has since been refurbished and remains a favorite of ours. I know some others are far more sensitive than us.

If your cabin has any strange or unpleasant odor, ask your cabin steward to spray some of his 'magical' cleanser spray. I have no idea what they use, but when double-sprayed, it makes a world of difference.

I am one of those who smokes, but not excessively, in my cabin. I take a small can of Glade Neutralizer spray, and use it a couple of times daily. I also wash my ashtray out often. I don't want the cabin steward (or any passengers after me) having to endure an offensive odor when they come into my cabin. (Some of us smokers are considerate.)

I'd say the best thing would be aerosol Lysol maybe.

Whether you bring it yourself, or the staff have it.

I find it comes in most handy for removing any odors that may come from the restroom after use . I'll be discreet, but it is a small cabin and a small bathroom. You can imagine it would be pretty easy to um, pollute a small cabin that way.

Most Bath & BodyWorks stores sell a really nice line of room fresheners from White Barn Candle Company. They are about $4. Not only do they come in really nice scents, but they come in small, ideal travel sized cans that slip very easily into a toiletry kit, and they are very concentrated. I never travel without one. The cucumber melon scent is my favorite.
