Default Celebrity Amenities

What type of amenities are provided by Celebrity in one's cabin? Hairdryer? Shampoo? Conditioner? I'm accustomed to having these and normally don't pack them but someone on a recent cruise couldn't recall because they brought their own.

Hello Frank,

Yes, Celebrity has those ammenties. But to be honest as the wife comments the hairdryer is something to be desired. She has shorter hair than most women. We have been on Celeb, Princess, RCI and Hal and all the hairdryers are not up to standards. My wife found a small foldable handle hairdryer that packs neatly.

We still bring our own shampoo and conditioner in small bottles for the pre and post cruise hotel, and if the items the ship provides is not to our liking.

Frank ...

I honestly don't remember on Millie last year, but this year on Summit there was a shampoo dispenser in the tub (well, on the wall) and a lotion dispenser on the wall of the bathroom. Don't remember about conditioner because I don't use it.

My hair is about the same length as Barb's (Y2C's wife) and I think the hair dryers are too wimpy. Those of us with shorter hair often depend upon the "oomph" of the dryer to get the desired result. I have a 1600 watt travel dryer (runs on both US and Euro currents) that folds and takes up almost no space. It cost less than $20. Add to that the fact that the wimpy dryers are in the bathroom (think steam) and it's a less than ideal situation.

Don't forget to pack a small extension cord ... some cabins are woefully short on electrical outlets.

I am partial to a barticular brand of shampoo and never have a problem finding "travel sizes" at my local drugstore. Failing that, you can buy plastic travel bottles and decant from the large bottles you use at home.

Frank,

Pamda is correct. Like the Millie, Constellation has a shampoo dispenser in the shower and a lotion (or is it handsoap) dispenser in the bathroom. In fact the lotion dispenser is in a really awkward place. I accidentally hit it a few times and a blob of lotion/handsoap fell to the floor.

Our experience with the hairdryer was fine. Maybe because it was new. I don't know. I still don't remember any toothpaste, disposable toothbrushes, shavers, etc...

If you find yourself in need of things like toothbrushes or razors, the on-board shop will gladly sell them to you.

I'm going to guess (always a mistake) that the Purser's office might have these items available if the shop is not open. I've never seen such things provided in a hotel or on a cruise ship without asking.

Thanks. I prefer the little bottles and we have a lot of those from hotels. (G) Princess provides shampoo in those cardboard type containers that one has to tear to open and its a chore when one is wet. And this year they seem to have stopped providing the conditioner. Just another little item to make sure we pack.

I don't like those dispensers. I've run across them in a few motels and would have preferred the little bottles like they have in most upscale hotels.

The only thing I think I'll need to plug in is my battery charger.

I was hoping that they'd do better with a new ship. I'll reserve my decision to see how it works. But I do now plan to take some little bottles with.

I wouldn't expect them to provide toothpaste, brushes or shaving items. It's mainly shampoo and conditioner that I was thinking about. Thanks.

From another post it seems that they do charge a small fortune for these sundries.

Any on-board shop, any ship, charges insane prices for the must-haves-if-you-forgot.

Here's an idea. Park a zip-top bag in your bathroom or other convenient location. In it, put everything you would hate to forget. Good time to buy new toothbrushes, anyway. Shampoo, etc. A couple of disposable razors. Small size deodorant and shaving cream. You get the drill. And don't forget the hairbrush !!!

As long as I'm at it, put a shopping bag on a doorknob somewhere. When you think about something you don't want to forget, put it IMMEDIATELY in that bag. No detours.

If you're forgetful (me? who? me? yeah) keep a running list of errands or things to buy on the fridge where you and partner can add to it as you think of things. I've long since given up the "mental list". When you do your errand running, do it as a team. Wandering through the drugstore or wherever, you will probably see ten things that would add to your enjoyment of the cruise that you never thought of. (AH! Those cheap ponchos that fold up REALLY small.)

We just returned from Infinity's Alaska run. In your stateroom/bathroom, there is a lotion dispenser and a shampoo dispenser (no conditioner). My husband & I found the hairdryer to be perfectly adequate, once you got used to it.
Have fun!

Having read the, mostly negative, comments about the hair dryer, I have one more question. Is it basically the same as found attached to the wall in most hotels? If yes, then I'll have a basis of reference to compare it to.

Yes, it's a wall unit. It's not bad if you have short hair.
