You have many different options available to you when it comes to shopping for and using beach towels on a Carnival Cruise. Of course you can bring your own beach towel to use at the pool or at the beach during a stop in a port of call. There are also oversized blue beach towels lefts in every cabin. These are free to use during your cruise. You can also purchase a towel from the Fun Shops and have it waiting for you in your room when you arrive. With so many different options, it leaves many asking the questions: “Should I order the towels before or buy them during the cruise?” Another questions that is asked is: “Should I buy towels at all or just use the ones they give me?”
Let’s take a look at the different options you have available when it comes to beach towels during your cruise:
You can order from the Fun Shop website and have souvenir towel gift sets waiting in your room when you arrive. The Sandal Beach Towel and Tote Set is the perfect item to purchase and use when you go to the pool or sitting on the beach at a port of call. Other towel items available include the Sandal Beach Towel, Youth Hooded Towel, Sail Away Package and the Splash Package.
There will be a couple of blue beach towels in your cabin room. Most of the time there is enough for each guests cruising. However, sometimes there is just two at check in. If needed you can get more towels by asking your cabin’s steward. If you wish to purchase these towels you can contact your cabin steward and he or she will bring you’re a new towel and charge $22 (at the time of publishing) to your cabin.
Towel check out
You can sign out the blue beach towels from the towel hut on the main pool deck and on the Serenity deck. Just make sure you return them to the same location where you checked them out from. You can keep them multiple days, but if not returned to the location they were checked out from your room will be charged. If something happens to your blue towel or someone takes it (which has never been a problem for us when cruising) just make sure to let someone know immediately.
Bring your own
If you bring your own beach towels from home than you do not have to worry about misplacing them. This ensures you do not leave one of the Carnival beach towels on the beach at one of the ports of call or in a cab. You can find inexpensive beach towels at a local discount store at home for a lot less than it would cost to lose or misplace the ones from your cabin.
When taking a Carnival Cruise you have so many different towel options available to you. You can bring your own, purchase them while cruising or just use the towels Carnival leaves in your room for you. It’s up to you what you do, but you will always have pool towels available when you need them.
