Stop hogging all the H2O!!!

I love the H20 products, so do you I'm guessing. But seriously, if you don't stop hogging all the H2O products, DCL is eventually going to go to a lower end product.

I've seen an inordinate amount of mentions on these boards of people who strategically drain their stateroom of these products every day of their cruise to get fresh. Think about how many rooms on a ship may be doing this, how many cruise nights there are a year and the loss caused by this hair care hoarding.

Now, being a man, I can say that I don't really miss the body butter, but I sure as heck would miss the current high quality shampoo + conditioner on the cruise ships.

I don't think there's anything wrong with taking 1 full or nearly full tube of each home at the end of your cruise (I mean, they throw them out anyways to replace with fresh), but you people who are bringing half a suitcase load home... Stop it! Please.

You know what? You can have my shampoo. I use it on the ship, but it's not my favorite and I always leave that behind. The conditioner is the best thing my hair just loves it. And I use the lotion everyday.

We don't hoard them but on the first day when we meet our stateroom host/hostess, and they ask our preferences, we tell them:
1. We'd like ice 2x/day.
2. We'd like 2 Navigators in our stateroom.
3. We really like the body butter. (too bad it's now the lame, watery lotion.)

We leave it up to the SH how many they'd like to leave. Usually they toss in a few extra the last night after they get their tip too.

I'm not stealing them & not asking our SH to do anything against their rules. If I'm paying $1000/day to sail, I doubt a few tubes of lotion will ruin them.

I agree, if I go to the Marriott and stay, I'm taking home all the lotions, shampoo & conditionar that is in my room. I am paying extra for those perks. It would be a different sotry if someone hijacked the cart full of them. Lighten up, do you really think this post is going to change anything?

But there ARE some people who DO essentially hijack the cart. I know I've seen it at the resorts - Mousekeeping is in a room and someone is loading up on the bottles from the cart.

An important point. Bath products are provided for our use onboard; taking full tubes home is....well...taking something that doesn't belong to you. Hurts us all, teaches children that small transgressions are okay, puts the room hosts in an uncomfortable position if you ask them if it is "okay" (as if they have that authority).

Small thing? To some. Use them, enjoy them, and look for them at stores when you return home. We really like them.

I understand this.

I think the reason why I don't use hotel/cruise shampoos, etc., because I'm hoping it wasn't taken from a room and then put in my room. Just thinking of someone else opening it, smelling it, whatever, ew. Asking them to put plastic wrap at the opening is just more $$$. And if the top doesn't "crack" open like a water bottle ~ it's just eww to me. Wrapped soap, I'm okay with.

I'd prefer everyone to take their stuff home (used or not) and put new products in...that will crack when you open it. But that's just me. My thought, opinion. I would think no one would want any of my unused shampoo, condition, lotion as it has been by my sink with all my kids brushing their teeth and all my hair blow drying and all my hairspray and coughing, sneezes, etc (they are kept in the bathroom). ew. Take them. Please.

So does this mean they don't use new tubes on each cruise? Pretty sure they just throw away what the past guess didn't use, that would just be gross if they didn't!

A little tube of shampoo, lotion and conditioner in a room of 4...we used them all,almost daily...not belonging to me...well....I paid for my cruise and it was not cheap and I'm sure use of toiletries are included in my price. So i should not use them or take them home to save Disney some money? I'm sure Disney will survive every little tube being taken home. I'm not hoarding them, but I'll admit I took few conditioners and I know Disney as a huge corporation will not go bankrupt because of it.
