Default Am I the only one??

who thinks the lotion and shampoo on Celebrity stinks, literally? The lotion is like bug spray and it's so tacky to have it mounted on the wall...does this bother anyone else or am I being too nit picky?

Do you NORMALLY use the hotel-provided products???

I DO NOT!!! Now, when I try them, am I interested or not? NOT!!! Low class quality!

cruising with marti:
I think you are the only one that has mentioned the soap in this thread so far.

The Zenith had the bar soap with oatmeal and it was okay. I carry my own brand with me all the time due to some allergic reactions.

The shampoo is not the quality that you'd buy for your own hair type from a salon. The lotion is too thin, not creamy enough. The soap is okay, I guess!

Wow - Am I The Only One - who REALLY LIKES the Celebrity lotion?!! I love the coconut smell. In fact, they have free little bottles of the lotion in the ladies changing room in the spa and I take as many as possible and take them home to use. Brings back wonderful memories of my great Celebrity cruises when I smell that great coconut smell.

was just on Galaxy, concierge class and you would think the lotion would be a little upscale? NOT! smelled like some kind of herb gone bad, no coconut OR vanilla!

Well, I use the lotions that most hotels offer because it's decent stuff. My skin gets dry, especially if I've been in the salt water. It just strikes me as cheap to have it mounted on the wall in a dispenser and then it smells bad and is kind of sticky.
The soap is fine....

You might be comparing apples and oranges here. Remember the CC and suites get a different grade of toiletries.

I've always found them to be acceptable in the suites.

Was the lotion dispenser mounted on the wall or did you get little bottles of it? I know the little bottles in the public bathrooms is much nicer than the stuff in the cabins.

One of the reasons cruiselines went to the dispensers is because of people taking too many bottles home with them.

Remember -- use what you can on the cruise, but it isn't meant to supply you at home! On some cruises they have stopped putting personal supplies in the Spa areas simply because they have been taken by passengers.

I don't like the lotion in the dispensers -- I find it very sticky and icky. The shampoo is too drying for my hair, so I just bring my own.
