Default Princess eucalyptus lotion and shampoo?

Does Princess still provide the eucalyptus scented lotion, shampoo and conditioner in your room and in the spa?

I remember it from my 2006 cruise. That was good stuff.

I will be on a cruise in August and don't want to get my hopes up high if they no longer have it.

Thanks,

Ann

They had it in October....I would think that you would have it on your cruise in August as well.

Thanks for the reply.

I hope they keep it. I must admit, the lotion was a factor in choosing Princess for my cruise.

It was in the rooms on the Sapphire in April. The bath gel is nice in the tub.

When I saw this topic in the headline, I had to laugh! I am sooooo glad to know I am not the only one in love with these products on Princess. I horded the ones we got in our Cabin on our South America/Antarctica cruise in 2008 and brought them home. It filled two large Ziplocs! I still have them over a year later, as I only bring them out and use them on special occassions. I can't wait to get more on my Princess cruise next summer!

On a side note, if you really like these products check out Bath and Body Works' Eucalyptus Spearmint line... it is similar (and will hold you over until your next Princess cruise!)

We had them on the Golden last week. They are OK, but I prefer the citrus scented Elemis products that HAL provides.

Hey, tell me about the Star (by the way, I totally agree with all the posters - that lotion is great, and we too have saved it since our cruise in December.)

We're going on the Star this coming December - sorry, would have liked to join old friends on the Coral, but the lure of South America was too great! How did you find the Star in comparison with the Coral and the Royal, the two we've been on previously? I'd be grateful for any information!

Great tip -- I'll have to check that out. I love the lotion, and that is a B&BW fragrance that I probably would have never checked out otherwise! Thanks!

I also bring several of the eucalyptus items home and when I use them, it reminds me of being on a cruise. I especially like the soap.

In our cabin on the Grand in January 2008, there was this great Caress body wash with Japanese infused oil. I loved it and was able to find it once in the store when I returned home (Target!), but now it is nowhere to be found. Does anyone know i this has been discontinued?

Thanks,
Michelle

I leave August 23 on the north bound Alaska Inside passage tour on the Coral.

I am already planning on leaving space in my luggage for the lotion. If I recall, I think you can buy bottles of lotion at the Spa. Is that correct?

The nice thing too is that they now come in bottles rather than the packets they used to come in for everyone.

I guess I am the only one that does not like the lotion. I just got off of the Golden last month and the lotion was so thick that I could not even get the lotion out of the bottle and I practically stood on the bottle to get it a tiny amout out. It is just too darn thick for me and that is not the only time I have had the problem. but now I do love the Shower Gel. Now that is one of my very favorites of the whole line.

I wish that they would provide an alternative for those of us that are allergic to eucalyptus. That Caress body wash with Japanese infused oil sounds really nice!
