Default Diamond Princess to Hawaii, 12/3/07

Scheduled on the Diamond Princess to Hawaii on 12/3/07. I have two questions for those who have taken the 2-week cruise to Hawaii:

(1) Laundry: do they have a plan where you can pay a flat rate for them to do the laundry for the entire cruise?
(2) Internet: do they have a plan where you can pay a flat rate to use the internet for the entire cruise?

My last cruise on Holland America in 2001 (1-week cruise to Alaska) offered these services. Any information would greatly be appreciated as this is our first 2-week cruise.

Hi, We are scheduled to be on this cruise, also, and this will be our first cruise on the Diamond Princess.
I don't know the answers to your questions, but I just wanted to say hi since we are going on the same cruise.

As far as I know, there are no flat rates for either the internet or laundry.
There are two ways to handle laundry. Send it out and pay by the item, costs vary depending on the items: ie pants are so much, socks another cost etc. You put them in a bag and the cabin attendant will take them.
Or you can use the washers and dryers on various floors, available for passenger use. They run about $1.25 per load.


Internet usage is charged by the minute, and they are sloooow. Can add up quickly, so pay attention.

Hi: we are looking at the same cruise but for Jan. or Feb, 2008. Can you tell me what cabin type, deck you chose - have you been on this ship before - are you going out the day prior to sailing?? We live in Western New York and can't depend on the winter weather so we travel a day early. Have you looked into shore excursions, yet?? Thanks.
