Norwegian Cruise Line has begun to phase out towel animals on cruises.
Cruise Fever first heard about this when several readers reached out to us who are currently on Norwegian cruise ships.
As part of the cruise line’s green initiative, towel animals will only be made if requested by the passenger. For now, this will only apply to select cruise ships. This change is being made to reduce unnecessary laundry at sea. Many towels that make up the animals go unused and have to be washed. It will also give the room stewards more time to clean staterooms.
A cruise tradition, room stewards typically make towel animals during turndown service. From monkeys hanging from the wall to dogs on the bed, cruisers love coming back from dinner to see what their room steward made for them.
We’d love to hear from you. What do you think of this trial phase being tested by Norwegian Cruise Line? Do you love your towel animals or do you understand why the cruise line is making this change?
