The tap water is good onboard. I'm sure some fill up jugs of that and take it home too.

That thread will be next month.

Yep. We place an order with them twice a year, usually for about $100 each time. That wouldn't have happened without what they let us use on the ship and then bring home. A week of using it on the ship is not enough to have gotten us hooked, but more time at home, definitely...

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

We just bought insulated water bottles to fill with H2O for our excursions. I refuse to pay for bottled water when I can get it from the tap.

Thanks Disney

Cruise director makes it clear "Don't take the red pillows, you'll be charged at the end of the cruise"
Ok, not taking the red pillows, I will however take the H2O that you so generously left in my room for me to use AT MY LEISURE, whether that be on the cruise, at my next hotel, or at home.
we led our H2O in oz.........

Postage rates to australia

the postage to oz is criminal....we pay more for postage than for the products....so of course we are going to take extras, as allowed under the mickey code of passage...he wants us to take them....cause he loves us

Thank you mickey for your yummy body lotion and fragrant shampoo...

One last comment before I abandon this thread. The title of this thread is the thing that got me the most. Hogging? Are people going without? Three exclamation points at the end? Are you really in that much of a rage?
Would it surprise you that DCL actually knows that people take some extra home and they LIKE that? It keeps their brand before you and even makes you long to take another cruise.

Amen! This thread is hilarious. We've always taken a few extra home. Partly because after the first cruise I bought the shampoo and conditioner online. Ok, that's my confession because I seriously feel less manly ordering any kind of specialty shampoo as a guy ! Stuff just works well.

So, come second cruise my wife probably brought home a few extra shampoo and conditioners. They're great for travelling and especially good for camping. We cook for our church's youth group(think boy scouts and girl scouts combined) so we camp frequently. The tubes are far easier to bring then the larger bottles.

And no, even if we didn't camp I wouldn't feel any need to justify taking home a couple extra complimentary bottles. Can't understand how someone would consider it stealing when they freely give it to you.

Interesting. This manners guy actually tells you to take the FREE shampoos home: http://manners.quickanddirtytips.com/hotel-manners.aspx

and this "elegant" traveling woman, in her section about pilferage, even says they are free. http://www.elegantwoman.org/hotel-manners.html (mind you, she concurs that stealing ashtrays is wrong, but the toiletries are free)

The only thing a room should giuve you is a good nights sleep. The clock radios, pillows, coat hangers and yes even the shampoo is provided for your use. Obviously there are cost to DCL for toiletries otherwise, they would not have cut Body Butter. Once you have taken the item I don't think it matters how you use it. The end never justifies the means. If you have to take it maybe you shouldn't have it. It may just come to that.
