Thanks for the advice on this topic. October is my first time on one of the larger ships, so now I know what to expect when I get a towel, and more convenient that I can keep it in the cabin. Also good to know that they should swap them out if I want a clean one, even though it means going to the pool deck, but I'm fine with that.

I have found on our last two RCI cruises that when we were ready to leave the pool area we had to wait or find someone to check off our return towels..I find this to a hassle sometimes and also wonder if we are being credited with the return. I also wonder if RCI is making a statement more than really making sure that cruisers have returned the towels that were checked out?

Keep in mind that there's not a limit to how many you can check out. For instance if you're someone who likes to sit in the hot tub at midnight and you're plannig to go ashore the following day, you can check out extras. You just have to return them all.

Yes, good point Marsha. You could probably check out a week's worth of towels on day 1, use one per day, and turn them all in on the last day.

The cruise line has gone to using card scanners and not paper sign-out sheets for the towels. This is connected to the computer just like a bar purchase would be. Thus it is quite accurate.

Well, TexCruise, you might just have to book another B2B

I think it's a good policy. Some people may think twice about leaving their towels on lounge chairs for a long period of time. If no one is at the towel exchange area (which is very seldom) I just take my towel to my room. If I'm with a small group, just one person gets the towels for the group - the same person has to return the towels. You don't have to use your seapass card just to exchange a wet towel for a dry one. How simple can it get?

Glad to hear that they have gone to scanning on the towels as that does make it quicker than waiting for someone to show up and hopefully check off your name so you don't get charged for a non return.
