Toiletries

Post by mandy1312 » 11 Jul 2019, 12:47

Although we have been on a few cruises - call it a mid life crisis but we are taking my now 16 year old daughter & her friend on Ventura & I can't remember if shampoo & conditioner are provided? - we leave this Sunday :) can someone please confirm before we board & my daughter goes into meltdown :crazy:

Pack a selection of what they like to use in small tightly fitting plastic bottles would be my advice … bon voyage :angel:

I've never known them to be free and easy with these products John. In my experience unless they see an empty bottle you normally have to ask for replacements.

Our stewards have normally placed a new bottle or bar of soap in the bathroom before we run out, maybe you are not being nice enough to them.

Just pop it / them into a case for safe keeping and the Steward(ess) will top them up thinking they missed it last time round :roll:

I always take my own, as others have said shampoo/conditioner is supplied but it depends on what is right for your daughter, she could always purchase some from the hair salon as they usually have good brands.

We've never had any issues with replacements.
Maybe we have been lucky so far.
