Have you ever taken a cruise? For most cruisers, the answer to this question is a resounding yes. When you’re on a cruise, there are so many things you can do to have fun. Everyone has their favorite pastime, from shopping to exploring to spending time on the ship’s pool deck.
A carefully thought-out packing list is key for a vacation. For instance, do you need a beach towel for the trip? If you are going to the beach a lot, then yes, you probably do. But if you will be staying in hotels or going on a cruise, do you really need a beach towel? Some hotels or cruise ships have showers you can take a bath in, which is more practical and comfortable. Others may have a towel service, where they will come and give you a fresh towel. They buy quality beach towels for their guests. Striped towels are usually preferred most of the time.
Some cruise ships ban beach towels, which is why many of them don’t allow beach towels on their ships and will only allow you to bring along a small beach bag. If you’ve ever tried to pack a beach bag, though, you’ll know that beach towels are much heavier. That’s why some cruise lines, such as Carnival Cruise Lines, allow beach towels on their ships, but only in the cabin.
Get ready for summer!
It’s the summer, and that means the beach and the cruise are calling your name. Unfortunately, so are the sand and the sun and the saltwater and the merciless waves. But worry not, fellow beach-goers, because there’s an easy solution to your struggle with beach towels. Simply fold them and throw them in your suitcase before you embark on your next summer adventure. Better yet, turn them into a beach towel dress! You can also check with your cruise agent if towels are allowed or offer a towel service while on the cruise.
