No more body butter!!



The latest cutback: it's no long body butter, just "lotion", and it's watery and doesn't work well at all. Has anyone else noticed this yet?

We just sailed on the Magic from NYC last weekend. They still provide the small tubes of shampoo & conditioner and I'm not sure if they changed since I rarely use them but I always look forward to the body butter on a cruise.

Really, how much could it add to the cost of a cruise when they buy it in bulk?

Oh no! Guess I know what to put in our FE bags! Really, nicer toiletries is a big perk in us loving our time...esp. The body butter when you get burned on sunny days..maybe they just ran short?

This is horrible news. I was always able to pack lighter because I knew I could count on the good H2O products provided in the rooms. Very disappointing.

AGH! This is terrible!

I never pack body lotion b/c that body butter is so awesome! Good grief...what's going to be the next 'little piece of magic' to go??? I'm still mourning the loss of Ken's honey mustard for the chicken tenders...and now this!

This is very disappointing !

I really really love the body butter they provide. Hope it's just that they run out of it temporary. It's a shame if they cut back on that. These are the little things I like about cruising on DCL.

Could it be that someone messed up on the ordering and ordered the lotion instead of the body butter? Or the wrong thing was sent to Disney? Or a temporary supply issue? I hope this is the case

I don't care for their shampoo or conditioner, but the Body Butter is great.

Well, don't hold your breath. I'm still irritated by the substitution of that horrible "nutrasweet yellow" for Splenda. I bring my own box along now....DCL must need the $4 per week that I spend in advance for the good stuff.

So now body butter. Guess the more we haul, the less they buy.

Same on the Wonder... Yes it is still H2O.. The packaging is a bit different on the Shampoo and Conditioner, but they are the same. Yes.. Now it is also Spa Body Lotion vs Spa Body Butter.

We may be the only ones that like the lotion.

Is it the same H2O lotion you get at WDW resorts?

They had already gone to the smaller containers for all of the bath products. The H2O prices are the same for the lotion versus the body butter, so it's not like they are saving money. The balm is about half the price of the body butter, however.

My mom prefers the lotion over the butter, so you are not alone.

Well, with all the people posting how they always ask for extras daily of the products so they can bring them home, for FREEEEE, not surprsing DCL cut back on sizes and amounts. If you really love the products, you can buy them here http://www.h2oplus.com/category/bath...ies.do?nType=1 I have seen them in the gift shops on the ships, at the Grand Floridian and at Ulta.
