Default Laundry special ??

I keep reading about a " laundry special" during your cruise...what exactly is that? We'll be on the Carnival Spirit in May....will this be available?

Hi Judy,

There's usually a laundry special about halfway through a cruise. Depending on the line, it's $15.00-$20.00 for all you can "stuff" into the laundry bag they provide. It's not a very big bag, but if you roll the clothes and "squish" the air out you can get quite a bit in the bag !

In case you want to take an hour or so to do your own laundry (and I know lots of people don't ), from the Carnival website:

Can I wash my clothes while on board?

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

Have a wonderful cruise!

read your Carnival Capers everyday while on board, the specials will be listed. Sometimes they offer dry cleaning specials, pressing specials, and the "all you can clean in the bag" specials.

Do you have to take your laundry to a special location and drop it off and come back and pick it up or do you leave it in your cabin and it is delivered to you?

Your cabin steward will pick it up and drop it off.

Take care,
