Default New bathroom amenities

If you're unhappy with the "paper" packaged shampoo containers, etc., here's some news from Princess!

Quote:
NEW LOOK FOR STATEROOM BATHROOM AMENITIES

In early 2008 bathroom amenities in all stateroom categories will take on a contemporary new look, as well as increased quantities!
The current paper sachets in stateroom categories, up to and including deluxe balconies, will be replaced with easy-pour, double-the-quantity bottled amenities. Shampoo, conditioner and body lotion will complement the tissue wrapped soap, with shower caps always available on request. Mini-suites will also receive luxurious bath gel.

In addition, suite passengers will enjoy bath salts, eye gel mask, sizzle mitt, emery board, cotton balls/Q-Tips, lip balm, and linen mist. If you are an Elite member of the Princess Captain’s Circle you will be rewarded with the same upgraded stateroom amenities enjoyed by our suite passengers, regardless of your stateroom category.

What in the world is a "sizzle mitt?"

No, wait, I probably don't really want to know.

Wow! That cinches the deal for me! Debating between Princess and Celebrity for a 14/15 day Hawaii cruise. Don't care for the dispenser on the wall offered by Celebrity. And I like having the option of the laundry. But I do so love the all-day lemonade and juice availability on Celebrity. Oh well, can't have it all!

The mitt was a shoe shine mitt and also, I believe "linen mist" is suppose to read "lemon facial mist". At least that's what I received. They are all the Lotus Spa Eucalyptas items.

We'll welcome the change to the bottles. The cardboard containers got "mushy" in the shower.
