I have not sailed on Royal Caribbean too often.  It's been hit or miss on Princess if I am able to get a fan on board.  Does anyone know if it's possible to bring a fan on Royal Caribbean??

I'll give it a try...    It says.... and any other item that may create a fire hazard. 

 

I used to put one in my checked back on Princess and they called me down to the naughty room and took it.  They said it was a fire hazzard.  After that, I started carry it on in my carry on bag.  That worked sometimes...  Other time they took it....

 

Thanks.....

Wow they really brought this list to the 21 century to include Hoverboards  and CBD Oil. I haven't looked at it in years. Now I want to check out the other lines.

I always bring an electric fan...not a big box fan, or rotating thing...but a 5" desk fan...I need air blowing on me to sleep....hot flashes....and this works ok for a week.  At home, the ceiling fan is on HURRICANE setting...but I make-do on vacation!

We used to request a box fan for our cabin every cruise but the last year or so they have not always provided one and instead sent us an email saying box fans are allowed as long as they are in good working order.  We have just started bringing our own.  The cruise we did on Allure last year we put a luggage tag on it and left it with the porters.  It went to the naughty room just long enough for them to "inspect" it and make sure it was okay (no frayed cord, etc.) and we were then able to pick it up a couple hours after boarding.

I would love a box fan...  I like it for the noise.  It helps a little with everyone slamming there doors to block it out a little...

But as I said in my earlier post, over the last year or so they have not been providing them and have said we need to bring our own. You can try it though!

I used to request a fan each cruise, however, the last couple they've replied stating they are no longer available but I can bring my own.

 

I usually stop at Walmart or Target and pick one up for $15 or less.  I have a battery operated travel fan, but it does not make enough noise. (which is the reason we use it) 🤨😐
