    It disgusts me but doesn't surprise me that some people take towels or anything else they can thieve from the room. I cannot imagine ever being so needy as to have to steal a towel from a cruise or hotel. I have taken unused toiletries as mementoes only if they are little used. That's about it.

      I must admit to taking a few coat hangers, some crockery, a hairdryer, a kettle, a pillow, cutlery, a shower curtain, a shower hose and
      a painting+frame off the cabin wall.

      I must also admit to pulling your leg!

        From a cruise, I've taken toiletries, and pens, but I must admit most of my pint glasses have come from a pub or two over the years ................................................Ca rol

          Turns out we took the "fabric" bag NOT the "hessian" bag we should have taken, the steward had accidentally swapped the bags.
          Oops! I should have specified the bag made of the “el cheapo” material. We’ve been given one of the nicer tote bags by the ladies in future cruise sales, but those lightweight Celebrity bags have gone on holiday with us elsewhere and are also good for storing my handbags in to,keep,them dust free.

          Take care, Helen

            Will a towel be big enough for the latest cabin flat screen tv’s. Better get a bigger suitcase.

              I've left hundreds of wire coat hangers on ships over the years, does that make up for taking the tea spoons?

                  Only toiletries from cruise ships. On Our Virgin flights the salt and pepper came in tiny plastic cartoon aircraft on the bottom of which was embossed " Pinched from Virgin Atlantic". Our coffee was served in very nice china cups. I asked the stewardess if they were for sale and she brought me two new ones free of charge.

                    We definitely were given a small umbrella on a Celebrity cruise, I think we were in Aqua class. I take home half used toiletries expecting that otherwise they will be binned but am very careful to not start opening bottles just before the end of a cruise.

                    My conscience wouldn't allow me to deliberately steal from anyone, although pens with advertising are fair game...Carol

                      Crumbs even the better quality bags aren't worth that surely.
                      Celebrity used to give lovely navy fabric bags which were nicely lined & with a loose zipped type of purse that fastened to the inside of the bag, really useful & they were not emblazened with a big Celebrity logo, just a simple little leather tag with Celebrity on it. Azamara bags were similar. Not sure whether it was a concierge cabin. Celebrity bags are poor quality now. Wouldn't bother taking one home.

                      Never stolen any towels or taken anything that's not an obvious freebie.

                        🙋 I bought a Royal Caribbean big pool towel home once by accident. It has been swept up into the dirty washing suitcase by one of us.
                        I spent weeks waiting for a $25 charge to appear on my credit card but it didn’t thankfully.

                          Oh, its you then. Could you please make sure you straighten them all up before you leave in future. I really don’t like using bent ones for my neatly pressed shirts.

                            Is it any wonder that the price of cruising keeps increasing. All these stolen items have to be replaced.

                              I love a nice pen and have always taken them from cabins and hotel rooms. However the coupe of FO cruises I have been on they have replaced pens with pencils, And blunt ones at that!
                              However I now but the pens as they are lovely to write with,nice flow of ink dont you know? I have a Princess waffle robe which was complimentary and a celebrity one also. No towels though. Jan.
