Towel Artists of the Seas


August 19, 2012 by csukach

In addition to cleaning and tidying cabins on cruise ships, stateroom attendants share their creativity via common household items.

Towel animals are a common sight in passenger rooms aboard ships like the Radiance of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean International cruise liner that makes trips around the world with stops in Australia and Alaska.

During a recent day at sea, crewmembers shared the secrets of their specialized towel-folding craft with passengers.


Common staples found in staterooms of cruise ships are animals made of towels. Recently the crew of Radiance of the Seas showed their guests how to make these towel animals during a demonstration onboard the Royal Caribbean ship.

Host Kashi Kenzi narrated the presentation.

“…and you’re going to rest it there and tuck one arm under the next… ”

Oftentimes it takes more than just one towel to make an animal. Most of the creations demonstrated included rolled and folded towels and washcloths.

The crew shared their skills in an atrium filled with guests who were all eager to document the show.

Some of the cabin attendants explained they’d come to their profession knowing how to create towel animals while others learned the skills on the job.

After much folding, twisting and rolling, the towels began to take the shapes of the legs, bodies and heads of their intended animals, much to the appreciation of the audience who’d gathered to watch.

Guests applauded the cabin crewmembers for sharing their knowledge. Reporting aboard the Radiance of the Seas, I’m Chris Sukach.
