Default Does the Norwegian Sun have a laundromat?

I know it sounds completely sad that we will be on holiday and will be worrying about washing , but we will be on a 4 week holiday around Canada and I need to work out where we can and can't get washing done so that we can reduce our packed clothing as much as possible, otherwise my partner will be trying to pack a new shirt for every day! .
If there is a laundry area, can anyone tell me how much it costs and how we pay for it please?
I'd be grateful for any advice. We are on our first cruise ever, so I really want it to be fab!
Cheers xxx

There is no self-service laundry. Got to sent it out with the cabin steward.

Thanks for letting me know . I bet it will be expensive to do it via the steward, so I'll try and get it done before and after the cruise.
Thanks again and enjoy your 2 up and coming cruises.

They do have a special. You can put whatever fits in a bag and they will do it for like $7.50 (??). On your cruise, they might do it more than once.

Hi gingerspice,

Welcome to Cruisemates!

As Irish Shark said, about half way through your cruise there should be a "special", all you can fit in the laundry bag for a certain amount. I think it was $20.00 on our NCL cruise. If you roll your clothes and "squish out" all the air, you can get quite a bit into the bag!

IMO, it's worth the cost to have your laundry done for you!

I hope you and your partner have a wonderful cruise and come back here to tell us all about it!

Just a note - two weeks ago when we were on the Sun they didn't offer the special - Or if they did we didn't get the usual bag in our room.
But they also only did 1 formal night and there was no captain's party for formal night. How weird is that?

The fee is $25.00 for all you can "stuff" into the bag. If the bag is not in your cabin ask your steward. This special is an NCL fleetwide thing. But, sometimes not well publicized.

When you get into a Port it is easy to find a laundrymat, you can always hand wash and hang it in the shower dries really quickly. Laundry prices outrageous especially on a long cruise.
