Anyone who has been on a cruise knows what this blog is about! There is no better surprise than to find a new towel critter in your room after the cabin stewards’ visit. These creative towel folds delight and add whimsy to your cruise trip. Anne likes most of them so much, she wants them left in our cabin until the end of our cruise.
Some cruise lines emphasize towel animals more than others—we have actually been on a cruise where they proudly display animals on the deck chairs, our Carnival Breeze sailing in 2014. The designs are creative and fun. There is no doubt they add true enjoyment to your cruise. Towel animals are found on almost every ocean cruise line and often on river cruise lines. We like them so much we even inducted one towel animal into our Traveler Hall of Fame—Eddie Elephant represents all towel animals who have traveled with us. To see more of the wonderful folks who have traveled with us and are members of the Dream Destinations Traveler Hall of Fame, PLEASE CLICK HERE (we would love to add you!)

There are even classes on some lines and books that will teach you how to make these when you return home. It is a great way to add to the memories of a good vacation. What an awesome idea—a new traveling companion who adds joy, costs nothing, and reminds us all not to take life so seriously!
Here are some of our favorites from River Cruises:
