Default donating books

I plan on bringing a paperback or two for some of the longer drives/plane flights. Does princess let you donate your used paperbacks to their library so i wont have to bring them back with me?

I dontated books on Carnival to the crew member who staffs the library. I'm sure you can do the same on Princess.

Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

We donated books to the library on the Golden Princess. They appreciated them and it was that much less to carry home in the luggage.

Quite often there's a book exchange shelf. You can put your books there and take anything which interests you.

I think most ships are very willing to accept donations. I have also swapped books with other cruisers, once read:)

Princess definitely lets you donate the books to the library ... you could also give them to a crew member for their library if you wish.

I cruise the Emerald Princess, Eastern Caribbean on April 16, 2012

My wife is a constant reader on a two week cruise she takes about 20 paperbacks and finishes them all she never brings them home. Most of the time she just leaves them in the laundrey room and someone else can enjoy them.
