Towels

Hello!
Question - do people bring beach towels with them?

Do they have towels at the pool on the ship?
What about Castaway Cay?

I realize when we went on an excursion we would to bring one?

Any help thanks

Yes there are towels poolside.

You can pick up towels on the way off the ship in port (Castaway Cay, as well as others). Be aware they are not beach towels. More of a large bath towel size. But you can take as many as you wish.

Be sure to bring them back, there are bins when you get back on the ship to drop them, so you don't have to carry them back to your room.

Not our own. The ship provides towels for pretty much everything you'd need a towel for.

Yup. Quite a few cabinets full of clean towels around the pool deck. Plus other cabinets for dropping off used towels. No need to bring towels out of your stateroom. No need to "check-out" towels either. Take as many as you want.

Plenty of towel bins there also. They also usually have a cart full of towels for you to grab as you step off the ship. They also have bins to put used towels into before you get back on the ship.

For excursions that include some sort of water activity, they usually make towels available for you also. Again, no need to take towels from your stateroom. They used to provide mesh bags to carry the towels on the excursions (and CC) but I think they fell apart too quickly or people kept taking them so they stopped doing that.

All Towel Aboard

Was funny to watch large group of crew getting all the toweles back on Fantasy at the end of the day at CC. Ship did not sail until all towels were on board.

Yeah, the volume of towels used on CC from a Dream class ship is staggering. That's a _lot_ of laundry to wash and fold.
