Does Carnival provide beach towels? Are they really beach sized or just big bath towels? I would hate to try to lay on a towel that wasn't long enough to suntan on!! Also it stinks to try to wrap a towel around you that doesn't fit! I'm happy to pack my own but if I don't have to it would be nicer. Any input would be great. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

They have an oversized Bath/Beach towel...
They count them so if you loose one then they charge your Sail & Sign card....
They also have a nice large white robe for each guest in the cabin....

Carnival's towels were better than those used by Royal Caribbean. The towels were beach towel size....not superplush but not paper thin. Adequate for the beach. We did lose a towel, but our room steward didn't bill us. DD left it on deck and it disappeared....so keep an eye on your towel on deck AND onshore....people love to take them!

Have fun!

I sailed the Conquest this past summer, and it had been 10 years since my last. I was surprised at the 2 towel rule, with none by the pool..I really hated it, I must admit....the lounge chairs too, were quite low, hard to get upp from, and the adjustments were either lay down, or sit at an odd angle, quite uncomfortable..these were really the only the 2 things that I didn't care for on the cruise.
