Default Self Serve Laundry Rooms Free?

I had heard a rumor that the washers and dryers in the self serve laundry rooms are free on Princess?

Is this true?

No, it's not free, but it only cost a $1.00 per load of clothes for both the washer and $1.00 for the dryer. They also have a machine that sell boxes of Tide for $1.00.

The laundermats are great and usually open about 7:00 AM until 9PM or so. They also have ironing boards and irons.

Princess is I beloeve the only cruise line that has self-serve laundermats for passenger use.

No Carnival has Laundry rooms too.

I believe most of the other big lines do too.

Are the laundry rooms open on day of embarkation? We are spending a few days in Seattle pre-cruise and it would be nice to get that laundry done as soon as we board.
Thanks for the info.

another tidbit- the laundry detergent selection is very limited. If you have a favorite or have to us a specific brand ( like me for allergy reasons) its best to bring your own detergent. The laundry tabs are great, i bring a small travel size bottle filled with my liquid detergent. Their are laundry rooms on each passenger deck, coin operated. They aren't very big- 2 washers and 1 dryer usually.

Celebrity does not have self service laundries. It is one of the few items I fault them for. However, Celebrity enthusiasts state that they are on vacation and don't want to spend it doing laundry. I always liked that feature on Princess, however, that is no longer that meaningful anymore as we have reached Elite status where laundry and dry cleaning are free. (G)

The Regal Princess has a laundry room with washers and dryers and there is no charge. This is an older ship, the newer Princess ships have machines but there is a charge. Belle
