From Carnivals website:

Self-Service Launderettes

Each ship has at least 2 self-service launderettes located on the stateroom decks.

There are two or three washers and dryers, and one iron and ironing board in each launderette. The cost is $2.00 per washer load and $2.00 per dryer load. Vending machines dispense small boxes of detergent and water softener at $1.00 per box.

Note: Due to local environmental requirements, the washing machines in the guest' launderette will be closed in port, per each ports specific requirements; the dryers and irons will be available for guest use.

There was always a long wait to use the washer/dryers on the Elation (I just sailed 4/4/04) had to get up there and wait 1 1/2 hours to be one of the first to do wash after we left a port. Even got up in middle of the night to try to get a washer and they were all running (couldn't believe it). So moral of the story, try to not have to do laundry or use the ships laundry service - on the 2nd to last day of cruse they offered a full bag of laundry washed, dried and folded for $15.00 - try to wait for this and utilize before using self serve washer/dryers.
