Default Let's talk TP

On our recent cruise the "tissue" was the roughest we have experienced in quite some time. Perhaps the worst was the odd little squares we had in college, but I expected better here. Did somebody know we caught a deal on a 72 hour sale?

We need some research in this matter. A study should be conducted to see which cruiseline has the best TP.
Hopefully we will get to the bottom of the situation.

You might have a rough time finding that out.

However it can be done we do need research into this issue. We got to get rolling until we find the smoothest TP ships out there.

No one should have a rough time at sea.

When I first arrive in Vietnam, our company had not received any TP. We spent our first two weeks setting up our base and we had to use the Stars and Stripes. That's the newspaper that is available to GI's.

When we started to go on patrol we would get a few pieces of tissue with our C. rations.

Now that I am retired I appreciate the soft stuff.

I agree that this is a touchy issue and some research is needed but I think what is more important is that there be some there when you need it. IJS.

There are people in civilized society who do not use TP.

It's not something that I would want to give up.

I plan to keep on rolling.

Rolling paper is still a popular activity.

There is a direct relationship between the average number of hours your cabin's vacuum toilet (and your neighbors' toilets as well) is out of order, and the softness of the toilet paper that you stuff down it.

Be careful what you wish for....................

I live in a country whose people believe that wadding up a bunch of paper to wipe one's bum in the 21st century is a truly barbaric and disgusting practice. You might try joining us in a much cleaner future.

I have yet to see a bidet on a cruise ship. But then I am a vacation cheapskate.

Ok, understood. I believe there are some in some of the suites on RCI ships.
