Ok just for fun who walks around the ship in a bathrobe?

Recommended Posts

On our recent Celebrity Solstice sailing, we booked an Aqua class cabin. To use the Persian Garden, passengers are issued thin robes and sandals.

We preferred the thicker, longer, robes in our cabin and our own sandals. So we walked from our cabin to the Persian Gardens in robes and sandals. And yes, we walked directly back to our cabin. :classic_smile:

I certainly use the robe in my cabin and on the balcony but never elsewhere on the ship. 

I consider the cabin to be like my home and corridor to be like the street outside my house (so I may venture into that to grab a paper from by the door or to drop off a room service tray). Everywhere else is treated as a public area like the shops, casino, public pool etc.

Don’t wear a robe at home, don’t wear one on a ship.

I need to cover up, especially when it is cold.

Well, that's rather rude...

 

Maybe it's an American-centric thing.  Kind of like the hatred of men's brief bathing trunks (aka "speedos") where it's the norm in other parts of the world.

I stay by my point, clueless, sorry if you think it is rude.   Someone here said they have never seen anyone in a robe in the buffet... I have.   Even if I was going to the spa, I would go, change there, not walk around the ship in a robe.

People wear hair curlers?????  Haven't seen those in at least 40-50 years.  Wow.


Jennifer Garner posted a selfie of herself in the school drop off line in curlers a few years ago.  Anymore they don't look like those ugly pink foam things, or worse yet the metal ones that had the brush inside to keep their shape and poked you in the head unmercifully that we had in the 60's.

Bathrobes are for in cabin use.  Bring a cover up for the pool in your luggage.

I don't recall robes on any of our 14 cruises

except for this one time on a (Carnival) Canada cruise out of NYC

when we were still in Port, after sunset.

 

I came across a small gathering of about 4 Japanese? ladies, in robes

trying to find the Jacuzzi pool, which was way up on the fwd. superstructure!

 

I knew where it was, so I offered to lead them there -and did.

Not much of a story, I know....sorry.

Like many other things - it depends:  going directly to or from pool or spa, wearing a robe is a common sense approach frequently followed in hotels with spas; hanging out in the atrium, or any food area it is kind of cheesy.   Failing to see the difference seems kind of sad.

Maybe some feel they are covered up, so they feel like at home. The biggest problem with that is that they are not home, they are in public.

My husband and I will wear robes to and from the pool and hot tub if the outside temperature is cold.  

 

We pack lightly. With available robes, we don't have to bring cover-ups, even though the robes are huge on us. One size DOES NOT fit all.

Agreed.  Once I started traveling a lot internationally, I realized that other people and cultures do some things differently (and often better) and it won't cause the planet to shift on its axis.

If it's very early in the morning and I'm heading to the pool to swim laps, and all I do is go straight from my cabin to the pool and back again, I might wear a robe.  (I do bring coverups as well, which is mostly what I use.)  But that's it for the robe. I agree with others that wearing a bathrobe anyplace where food is being served is just gross.   Last summer on a HAL ship, this guy walked up and stood next to me on the buffet line at lunch time.  Gross.

Never have, probably never will.  I don't like the look, plus for me they are too large and heavy.  I can barely lift my arms!  If they are there I will usually ask the steward to remove them since they take up storage space.

I am not against speedo type suits in general.  I AM against some men who really should cover up more wearing them.  Men like me. 🙂

 

Same thing with string bikinis on some women. 😄

 

I have worn a bath robe to/from the spa in a hotel.  But with sports shorts under it.  No need to dress to go to the spa to undress.

but why is it gross?

I've seen women in barely there swim suits with the completely transparent cover-ups at the buffet. How's a robe which covers a lot more and is not transparent become gross?

Please, no body shaming.  If one person can wear something then all can.

I wasn't make any comparisons, and if that guy in his bathrobe doesn't strike you as gross, then there's nothing I can say to explain it.  You are certainly entitled to your opinion that there's nothing inappropriate about someone showing up in a dining area like that.

I guess that if we were a couple of busy bodies who were of the opinion that everything we did, wore, or how we acted should be the standard for the rest of the world then we might give it a seconds thought.

 

But we are not. We believe in MYOB.  Besides, we have no control over what others wear so it is hardly worth our while to fuss about it or crticize it.

Wow!  And it is cinched quite tightly.
