Movie Monday: Creatures We’ve Found in Our Staterooms

Snake or swan? We're not really sure what it was meant to be...

If you’ve never cruised before, one of the things you’ll discover waiting for you each night in your room are towel animals. Your stateroom steward takes any towels you’ve used during the day to create them.

Sometimes we don’t always know what they’re supposed to be. (Depends on how seasoned at towel animal making our stateroom steward is.) Like the towel animal pictured above. Is it a swan or a cobra? Could be either to some extent really.

Or this next one. We’re at a loss what it’s supposed to be.

It reminds me of Cousin It.

Wayne said it was our Ghost in the Bed. That could work!

But then you get some that are amazing. You definitely know what they’re trying to represent.

We were delighted to find this little elephant waiting for us upon our return one night.
Cute little towel monkey swinging from a hanger!

I decided to put some of the towel creatures we’ve found in our staterooms into a movie to help promote the cruise. How many can you identify? How many leave you with furrowed brows wondering, “I have no idea what that might be?”

  1. You certainly know a lot more about ‘movie making’ than I do. The towel creatures are so cute, regardless to what they represent. Inventive chamber maids doo them too in some more exotic 5 star hotels, but they seem to be a cruise speciality. The art is called origami (I think).

  2. LOL! I don’t know anything about making movies, Inka. I just put stuff together and see what turns out! But I would love to stay in an exotic 5 star hotel sometime where the chambermaids create origami towels. (I didn’t know if it was origami or if that only applied to paper, but I like the sound of it! πŸ˜‰

  3. These are sooo cute! (adds to the excitement of staying somewhere) I like the elephant one the best!

    A waitor made the monkey one before at my table, but he presented as the chicken o_O

  4. A chicken??!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s funny. How could a monkey look like a chicken? I love when waiters (or anyone for that matter) has a sense of humor like that. How fun!

  5. LOL! I never thought of it like that, Ayngelina. Eyes are new. They didn’t used to do that. And now I will always think of your comment when I see a towel animal with eyes!
