Default No recycling clothes in Caribbian in Sept.

Man pretty hot. Just about everything I wore ashore needed a wash by mid-week. Big difference over winter time, 100% humidity and all.

Glad they had a laundermat on the PCL CB.

There is something to be said for ships that have a place to wash a load of clothes on a sea day.

Id say if your going down during the hotter months plan on takeing a fresh change of clothes for each day/shore trip.

I agree. I just cannot wear clothes multiple days and be comfortable. I HAVE to have a clean outfit for each day.

Good post Russell. I thought I had overpacked for our Sept. cruise (Western Caribbean), but NOTHING could be worn more than once - at least on the port days.

Hi Russell,
I couldn't agree more with you. WE had the same problem last week while on Carnival Glory. It was plain HOT and humid and I had known there there would be self service laundry rooms on the ship, so I packed a little less and I did do a load of wash...we were going through t-shirts like crazy and it was also nice to get back home and not have everything dirty. There was a post in the "Cruiseline Suggestions", that basically asked that all ships have these laundry rooms, I'm for that!
