Default Laundry on the Dawn Princess

I read somewhere that the washers/dryers on the Dawn were free.

Is that TRUE?

Any laundry hints appreciated..... is it better to overpack and just take home dirty clothes?

Thanks.

The self-service laundry is not free. A buck to wash and a buck to dry. Plus another buck or so if you need the suds.

Thanks. I had read the thread that you linked to, but that was for the Diamond, not the Dawn.

A cruise review I read recently said it was free, which is why I was asking. I found that hard to believe.

No Princess ship has free self-service laundry.

Perhaps they were talking about the Elite Members who get free laundry.

Here's the review with the mis-information. Just to show I'm not crazy.

That review is so far out-of-date. Maybe written 5 years ago or so.

Piglet, it's pretty easy to be confused !

It's the NCL Dawn that has the free laundry (you have to buy your own soap and softener).

The Princess laundries use quarters and you have to buy your own detergent and softener (if you want it) or bring your own with you.

JMO, but we always bring our own laundry soap and dryer sheets.

None of the Princess ships we have been on have a 'free' self-serve laundry. I don't think that website has accurate information. BUT I will be on the Dawn Princess next week (beginning Sunday). I will check it out and let you know.

What about using the iron in the laundry room? Is there a charge for that as well?

No charge for that or for the board.

Laundry on the Dawn Princess was not free. Wash and dry is 75 cents each.
