    We sailed on Aurora in 2010 & had a cabin with a shower over a bath. My wife prefers a shower & I enjoy the occasional bath as well as a shower, so the arrangement suited us both. It's worth mentioning that the bath on Aurora was small, very small, I could sit in it, but no chance of stretching out, but enjoyable non the less. At home we've just had a downstairs toilet / shower room fitted & left intact the shower over bath arrangement upstairs - we are both happy now.
    The most "interesting" shower on a ship we sailed on was on one of Hurtigruten's small ships & the cubicle was probably not much more than a couple of feet across with a very clingy curtain. When the seas were rough the grab rails in the cubicle were very necessary.

      That reminds me of a tale about a gentleman from Texas, who was sailing on a Princess cruise ship - the former Royal Princess, which subsequently transferred to P&O as Artemis. Every bathroom on that ship had a small bathtub, with a shower above the bath.

      And as you will probably know, many aspects of Texan life are unusually large. The Texan gentleman complained that although he managed to get into the bath, there was no room for the water.

        We use RCI a lot and as far as I'm aware most cabins have showers with sliding doors, baths are a rarity. Unless you can afford a suite. These showers are compact but suffice. If I really want to have a big shower cubicle and maybe the use of a steam/ sauna room before hand, then I head to the gym, where these facilities are available for free.

          Well, thanks to my current knee injury I have now invested in a bath board to fit over my tub so I can take a shower without further injuring myself. So much fun getting older, eh?

          Take care, Helen

            Shower nearly all the time, and even though I am not small the curtains on a ship don't bother me, I can manage to shower and avoid them.
            I still love a good soak in the bath at home, especially if I am aching from overdoing the housework . I don't need the candles, but half a bottle of radox ( the OH says I should only need a capful!??!!) and the radio on and I am happy for an hour or so. Occasionally topping up the hot water by turning the tap with my foot.......wouldn't want to overdo it.
