Free stuff on cruises
 
Has anyone else noticed the free stuff you use to get in your stateroom has gone from a full bowl to two or three items. Whats up with that. No razors, shampoos samples...gee i even remember getting a bag of candy. So just wondering what up or better still why bother with it.

The free stuff is donated to Carnival and Carnival has no control over what they receive or how much.

If its free why are you complaining?

free stuff
 
It just that I have noticed since I've been cruising 94 the bowl in the bathroom was stuffed full of stuff ie, shavers for him and her, candy, toothpaste, deorant, shampoo samples and now were down to two toothpaste and snoring strips. I know that they get them from companies but you have to ask yourself why arent the companies still doing it. Are they pulling here advertising; which is what the free stuff was all about in the first place.....anyhow just saying. On the Liberty we got two samples of toothpaste and 3 snoring strip pkgs. The bowl looks so big now lol. I use to look forwards to see what I was going to get.

Well, the economy sucks, so companies aren't giving away samples like they used to. On my most recent cruise, I got the "snoring strips", two small samples of toothpaste, and a small bottle of skin softener? ;)

Plus, with the increase of cruise inventory it is even more expensive to stock free samples everywhere.

When you sail on Royal as a Diamond member the wine flows pretty freely at the Diamond lounge.

Air is Free and available on every ship all cruise lines!! :mrgreen::mrgreen::p:wink:

On the Breeze there were a couple of sample items in a basket in the bathroom...don't even remember what they were.....

Last couple of cruises it did seem a bit "spare". We will see the end of May on the Fascination.

I find nothing useful in the Carnivak"bowl." Recently took a Celebrity cruise and they had nothing free in the bathroom.
