CruiseCam and I must be a lot like you, Sue. No matter where we travel, even overnight, we always take a minimum of one pillow each, and usually two. We have some "travel-size" hypoallergenic pillows that we use at home, and simply don't sleep well without them.

I have no problem sleeping on the cruise ships. The pillows are fine. Thanks for asking. Char

I hate cruise ship pillows....sleep with huge pillows at home....if I traveled with them, I wouldn't have any room for clothes...and heaven forbid, SHOES!!! <VBG> However.... when we travel by car......in they go with me!!!

Like Mgram, I like those HUGE, fluffy, pillows! But to get them on the ship with me, I'd need an extra suitcase! If we're going to the lake for a weekend though....those pillows are in the back of the SUV!

I might try stuffing at least 1 into a suitcase in September though!!!!

Take Care!

Mgram- I am like you. I don't take them on the cruises but everywhere else.
I ask for three extra pillows when I board. I sleep so well on the ships that it almost doesn't matter.

Queeg refers to our bed at home as "Pamda's Pillow Palace."

I just ask for four more when onboard. AND double pillowcases.

Like Carole, I sleep so well onboard that I might not even NEED pillows.

What I also ask for is a light blanket. I hate to mess up the bed for an afternoon snooze but I like to be covered.

I use only 100% down pillows, 2 or 3 of them at home. They are wonderful because they tuck right in under your chin or your neck and keep your neck and spine at just the right angle. I CANNOT sleep without at least one of them and some other pillow to put under it. The great thing about down is that you can squoosh all the air out of it and fit it into an already full suitcase. I NEVER go anywhere, even to my mom's house, without at least one of them.

I wish the cruiselines had the one pc. FOAM pillows. My husband gets mad at me because I always try to squish my full sized foam pillow in my suitcase! (I try to leave the expandable part unfilled for sourveniers, but . . . . !)

I'm not too picky when it comes to pillows on board. A life preserver would be fine.

Merman makes do. He prefers to bring his own pillow on road trips, but has not brought it on a cruise yet.

At home, I'm like Pamda....I like a fluffy nest of several. And puffy pillows! No flat, squishy feather filled ones for me.

I'm thankful that I don't care what kind of pillow I sleep on. I never thought of packing one to take on a trip. Yikes-where would I put it? As long as I get to sleep on a bed and not the floor, I'm happy.

Car trip-pillows go, cruises-request extra pillows...don't have a problem sleeping on the cruise, feel like I am being rocked to sleep every night, could be regression I suppose back to when my mom rocked me.

Bill and I need our pillows! We have seven on our bed. But, I haven't any from home when on a cruise due to limited packing space. We usually as for two extra each (each having three) but on our April Destiny cruise they were still too flimsy. Will probably stop at Wal-Mart or K-Mart in Hawaii and buy two good sized pillows and just leave them behind. 12 days would be just too long without.
