You think I am photographing strange things? Where do you think I get the ideas for what to photograph? Questions come from these boards, and I try to photograph the answer on my next cruise. Lets face it, with digital photography I'll bet 1000 photos cost me less than 1Ã‚Â¢ (since I already own the camera).
I agree, with digital photography it's so easy to take pictures of stuff you never would have wasted the film on before. And it is a big help to show people who have not cruised before to be able to see what it's like. On our cruise in Dec on the Inspiration, they had Crest toothpaste in the foil packs, razors and a few other things. Also the liquid soap and shampoo in the shower. I think you can ask the room steward for items that you may not have and they will being them to your cabin. I remember once we ask for something and they brought it to us. Normal toiletries they didn't charge for.
I have to second what Luci said. We got back a couple of weeks ago from the Carnival Triumph and all that was in the bowl were disposable rasors and little trial packets - not tubes - of four flavors of toothpaste. They still have the body wash and shampoo on the wall. And my hair isn't thick, but I have trouble using most of the hair dryers they supply.
During the time leading up to my cruise, I plan on picking little samples of toiletries.....get alot of samples in the mail too. They don't take up much room and I don't have to repack any of it and drag home with me.
Does anyone have pictures of the cabins on the Pride or a ship similar. We have a balcony room and I was told that it was a waste of money. I don't think so since I want to enjoy the balcony, but since this is my first cruise I would love to see what an actual room looks like instead of looking on the web site.
I have posted the photos I took on the Miracle. The album is in the Cruise Addicts Gallery. Called Cabin 6259 and the owner is Karan Abshire.
I would suggest that you bring extra clothes hangers. I never have enough with what is provided in the cabin. Also, I usually bring a SMALL hanging shoe rack made of cloth to keep my bathroom items and makeup sorted. There usually is not enough shelf space for all that I bring. And finally, there is only one outlet near the desk. Bring a small power strip if you have things to plug such as a battery charger, hair dryer, laptop, etc.
