Default Re: Laundry facilities

Unlike Princess, Celebrity does not have self service laundries. I know people say that one should just enjoy their vacations and send the items out to the ship's laundry but since we take long cruises, I'd like to be able to do a a load or two during the trip. (I do the laundry in our family.) For long Celebrity cruises, I pack my oldest underwear that I was about to throw away anyway and just discard them.

I know the prices aren't bad and I usually have my tux cleaned on board but I am reluctant to send as much as I'd put in a load of laundry to the ship's cleaners. That could get to be more expensive than I'd like. And I don't like washing items out in the sink and hanging them in the shower as I've heard some people do.

But there is nothing one can do. If one sails Celebrity, they have to be aware that there are no self service laundry facilities. If it is that important, than one should book other lines. I deal with it if the itinerary and cruise price are attractive. However, if the food drops below Princess', which I've heard rumored, than that would push me over the edge. I'll find out in May when we sail the Constellation again.
