Wow- how did you find out we are traveling together? I thought we had to wait a month before the trip- this is my first Olivia cruise- thank you so much for reaching out to me- this has been my biggest worry about sharing a cabin -about the fragrance free issue. I use arm and hammer free of fragrance detergent but there are many out there- they will say free and clear of any perfumes and fragrance- the other big issue is fabric softener- I can’t tolerate any of that and pretty much it isn’t needed, the other thing is to start washing the clothes you would bring several times before the trip with unscened detergent as the scented laundry products stick around in clothes, I am fine with a body spray outside the room; and I won’t have a lot of control over sunscreen, because everyone will be using it- if you want to look for a fragrance free one that would be great- there are lots of them: as to shampoo and soap and that stuff- I use my own fragrance free stuff but I can tolerate them in others as long as they have a mild fragrance- but I can’t tolerate hair spray, there are good unscented shampoos and cream rinses and I use Dr: Bronners citrus bar soap which has very little fragrance: I am also happy to bring shampoo and cream rinse to share with you- but we all have different preferences and needs around that. Bug spray would need to be sprayed outside the room too.
I am from Massachusetts but was born in New Jersey and am a young 62. I am really looking forward to this trip- I have been a Chris Williamson groupie since my early 20’s and I am a singer. I also love the water and swimming is my greatest joy. I am a psychiatric nurse and this trip is a big treat and also I don’t know what to expect...let’s keep this conversation going and I am sure we can figure this out- if you want to speak on the phone I can call you- let me know what good times would be- also this is my email- firstname.lastname@example.org.
again- thaks so much for reaching out- I am a bit of a fragile soul with my environmental allergies and I also have many food allergies- which is something I need to go over with the cruise line. Stay in touch and it would be good to talk sometime.
All the best- Jamie
