Princess Robes

Recommended Posts

Just had a thought. On the Regal, last week, we were reminded of the tiny Princess robes. I could barely close my robe and I am a 6 foot guy with a pretty average waist line. I would think that at least half the folks on our Regal cruise would have been unable to get their robes closed...unless Princess has some larger ones in their inventory.

Those robes are joke. They should either replace them or just don’t offer them.

Don't forget the lack of a staircase on Royal Princess! Imagine that! People had to use the elevator!!

All those thousands of people who were desperate to walk up and down the stairs (funny really as whenever we walked downstairs we rarely passed anyone else!)

Thank heavens they've built it now.

Same experience. Sometimes we’re lucky with a robe just right. Most often, it’s small

Just off the Caribbean. New robes in all the rooms fit wonderfully. Probably got new robes when they came out of drydock

I agree. Might fit a 5' 2" slim person.

now, wait a minute. This is a real drama! How dare you make light and fun of the missing parmesan bowl?

 

P.S. Some CC poster said that it's not because the robes are actually small, it's because the obese gluttons want more than one entree and then complain about not fitting into the robes onboard Princess.

Same here. The new waffel weave robes are quite large and long.

DH wears a XXL which fit with room to spare.

Way big on me ... but worked for my needs.

Oh boy. Here we go. Off to another tangent with responses of body shaming and it is my thyroid.

Give them a few months to shrink them. ;)

You folks just don't get it. In order to slim down the passengers (so they can close their robes) Princess discontinued the Parmesan bowls :).

They have replaced the robes with new ones that are a nice stretch type material and bigger. They still don't fit someone XL but are much nicer.

They call you on the chefs table and ask you if you want the wine, you say no and it’s suppose to be $15 cheaper, then they go ahead and charge the $15 and don’t take off.... also the ice cream ( really ice mile) sucks!

lol. Honestly, you got it! The secret plan. Oh, and don't forget - no more gelato on coffee cards. That's another ploy to get us to lose weight. I never knew you could buy gelatos with coffee card punches and was looking forward to finally doing it on my upcoming cruise. And what do you know? this was cancelled.

Over the past ten + years I have requested robes on the Cruise Personalizer many times and have NEVER had robes in the stateroom (other than the one time we were in a suite) UNTIL we sailed on the Grand last month. On Day 2 or Day 3 (can't remember which) we returned to our stateroom and there on the bed were two lovely, nice quality, thick terry cloth, generously sized robes. I was shocked! I am not sure why this happened but this was our first cruise as Elite and my thought was that perhaps the robes are an Elite perk (?) Anyway, it was a very pleasant surprise.

they are all being washed on turnaround day - we've made a request to our steward and usually had them sometime the next morning

Kidding....right!?! I'm 5'10" and 175 (that's verging on "overweight" according to BMI index). The robe is MORE than big enough! You get as many pats of butter as you want, the pizza is as mediocre as always, you get 2 (or more) entrees as often as you want, the stateroom towels are as good as most hotels, and so on. Princess is still a great experience!

We had lovely new plush robes on the Royal this past June. They were plenty large even though my granddaughter and I are both pretty small. Just hoping they'll replace the old waffle ones on the Regal before our Baltic cruise in June.

We had previously had a nice plush robe (I think it might have been on the Ruby). But what we had on the Regal (last week) were the older waffle robes (lightweight) made for stick figures. Somebody mentioned that they were Elite and go nice plush robes. We have been Elite for a very long time and were not so lucky. I am wondering (out loud) if there are only a limited number of plush robes and its luck of the draw. We did not think it was that big of a deal and never mentioned it to our steward (to try and get nicer robes). But it is one of those little things we save for CC :).

In May this year on the Ruby one robe showed up in the cabin. This was after 9 previous requests with no robe. I had just left the request ride on my personalizer.

 

So, one day I tried it on and walked out to show the Wife. I was really concerned that she was going to hurt herself laughing. :D Then when she started to hunt for her phone (has a camera) I beat feet back to the closet area and got dressed.

 

It was one size fit very small and did not fit me.

 

Next cruise in Oct, no robe again.

I've never seen "Plush Robes" listed as an Elite perk. If it really was a perk, don't you think Princess would feature it?

after getting our robes i went out to the steward and asked if he had any for fat people. he said no.

 

Too many trips through the buffet line?. You must be overeating at the buffet?:confused:

Those robes are enormous. :)

I recall the plush robes being for suite passengers. I think we got them once early on, but other than that it has been the one size fits some waffle robes.

 

Any time we've asked our steward for one, we've gotten it.

Seriously folks, the robes on the Regal are a joke. They look the same as on other Princess ships but they've shrunk badly particularly in relation to the binding. They're an awful sight and the cabin stewards are very apologetic. I'm a size 10 and can barely wrap these new robes around me! Seems like the fabric was faulty or the laundry boiled the lot!

The plush robes are reserved for full suite guests - I think they give them out with the $100 plus Captains Dinner or whatever they call it or you can buy them - I have no problem with the waffle weave but then I am average for my height and usuall only eat three meals a day plus a few snacks and have never gained more than three pounds on a cruise - the secret is you do not have to eat 24/7 just because it is there
