Can anyone tell me if the Pearl has laundry machines for the guests to use? Priness had them on the Island Princess and the Star Princess. We like to do the very active excursions and we have tons of dirty clothes by he end of the trip. Having use of laundry machines cuts down on the amount of clothes we have to pack if we want clean clothes. Yes I know that most lines can do your laundry for a fee, but to have a T-shirt cleaned for 3.00 is outrageous. I rather bring an extra shirt and wash the dirty one when I get home.
19 cruises total on all different lines including RCCL, NCL, Celebrity, Princess, Holland America and Sea Dream. Our 20th Cruise is October 2007 on the Mariner of the Seas.
Washers were free on the Jewel; I am certain this is the case with all the new NCL ships. The Jewel had 4 decks with washers, dryers and ironing facilities. You can purchase small boxes of detergent the reception desk for about a dollar. It says one box per load, the machines are a little small. We found 1 box would easily do two batches. I was afraid if I used a box for 1 load the soap would never come out.
