I am starting to think about stuff to pack for the Oct 12 cruise, and it occured to me that I didn't know if there were any laundry facilities aboard for guest use, or how much it would cost to have them done for us if there were no laundrymat on board.
Any of you previous Millenium cruisers know the score on Millenium laundry?
Sorry, but there are no self laundry facilities on Millennium. However, the laundry, pressing and dry cleaning services are reasonable and they do a good job. My wife and I were on a 14 day cruise and had no problems using the service.
I would say the costs were only slightly higher than what you might find locally. But I think they are much less than you would pay in U.S. hotels for laundry services.
The ship is wonderful, I am sure you will enjoy your trip.

As mentioned, laundry services are reasonable. I bought plastic Clothes pins and washed underwear and socks about everyother day. Hung Golf shirts on a hanger to dry in the shower. If you have a verandah, you can put a t-shirt on back of a chair to dry where no one will see it. For daytime, I brought 4 pr. shorts, 3 pair of slacks with coordinating tops. For evenings, take one less outfit per dress recommendation; 2 formal, 2 informal, 5/6 casual outfits, 2 pr. comfortable walking shoes, 2 pr. dress shoes, 2 pr.daytime/casual shoes. A light nylon jacket should be enough for cooler days. Don't forget a Water bottle.
