    I've never had them, but heard the opposite.

    It will be posted in the navigator. It is usually in the atrium on the classics.

    Yes. Every night. We carefully move ours and save them. By the end of the week, we have a little towel zoo. :)

    Do you mean do the room stewards leave towel creatures? Yes, they do. It's the first thing we take a picture of when we get into our stateroom.

    Wow! I never thought about trying to save them. Our room attendant kept using our blanket to make creatures...obviously a lot larger than towel animals. I think we would run out of room to store them by the end of 7 days.

    Well take it from someone who has, it is probably the first time in my life that I didn't finish a chocolate chip cookie. I'm not the only one either. I saw many partially eaten cookies left in the halls with the room service plates. Every one I saw on the fantasy was noticeably overbaked too. Maybe they have been better on other ships or at different times? But not much better than cardboard last month. I promise I'm not that picky either.

    I just did this!!!! We were in a 1 bedroom suite, so that helped to make room! Only the monkey was gone at the end of the week when I took a video of my zoo! :thumbsup2

    We haven't been on the new ships yet (1 more week! :cool1:) but on the Classics, I always thought the chocolate chip cookies offered on-board weren't that great - mostly over-baked. We ordered them once from Room Service and they were the same cookies served on the buffet - which I grab occasionally only when there isn't anything better!

    However, the ones on Castaway Cay are awesome! I don't know what the difference is - I imagine they're the same people cooking them - but maybe the ovens on CC are different enough that the same recipe that comes out overcooked in the ovens on the ship come out perfect on the island? :confused3 It's a bit of a mystery, but I won't complain!

    Weird, we had them every night on our Fantasy cruise in February and loved them. Warm, moist, and gooey.

    We also order them every night, with cartons of milk. We didn't leave any behind, and I usually packed some in the bag for our excursions.

    Thank you for sharing that great idea. I will have to remember to take Mickey off my screen and change it to my room number :)

    Brilliant idea!! I never thought to put my contact info on an index card, take a picture and put it on the lock screen. Fantastic! I just tried it and I'm going to do this on every trip. Thanks!:thumbsup2
