Default Laundry question

When you send out you laundry in the bag provided, who actually does the laundry ?? The room steward ?
Thanks,
Pat

There is a separate laundry room that handles all linens, crew uniforms and personal clothes, AND guest laundry.

Depending on the cruiseline, some of them have guest self service laundry, for a fraction of the cost...What cruiseline are you on?

On or about my fifth day on the Miracle Carnival offered a Laundry special to do all my Underwear T-Shirts and socks (no trousers or dress shirts) for $15 too bad I had already done my laundry. BTW the self service laundrey was $2 to wash $2 to dry Ironing was free. You get quarters for the machines from the pursars desk.

Donna we are on Zandaam.

Thanks Trip for the info. I am assuming by your post, they wash undies.

I have used self serve laundry in the past, but we are on a 15 dayer and I didn't want to pack so much.

Hi Sassy!
Most of Holland America ships have self service laundry and it is a good thing for longer cruise. Have a nice one. Mateli

Century, and no other Celebrity ship, has no self service washers and dryers.

You will need to send out your clothes if they need to be laundered.

Take care,
Mike
