Who has used the silicone or metal straws Carnival now sells for the whole cruise

Recommended Posts

I have been using one I got off Amazon for some time now and have had no issues. Yes, I do rinse it out after each use and wash as soon as reasonably possible. Mine came with both a brush and a squeegee type thing to clean the inside easily so I have not had an issue with anything building up inside. Making the adjustment to this type of straw wasn't a huge deal to me.

Metal or Silicone... ?

We used metal collapsible straws with no silicone tips on our last cruise, and will be bringing them on our upcoming cruise.  The metal straws held up well, didn't taste funny, and were overall easy to use. The straws came with a carrying case and brush cleaner.  I cleaned them every night and I didn't have any problems.  I used them in alcoholic drinks, so I figured the alcohol helped kill any germs.   Honestly, I would encourage anyone who is planning on taking their own plastic straws to give the metal ones a try, it really wasn't any big hassle.  I would think that carrying around individual plastic straws would have been more trouble than a metal straw in a a case clipped to my lanyard.

Silicone. It has a holder on a lanyard similar to the one in the picture posted by someone else.
