Default Serenade of the Seas question

Is there a laundry area on the Serenade where you can go to iron your own shirts, etc.? Which floor(s) is it on? We will be on Deck 10 in a JS. I know that they also provide a laundry service, but want to iron if needed ourselves. I know irons aren't allowed on board, and would rather not bring it anyway. Thanks! It is getting closer!

Hi Kit,
No, none of the Royal Caribbean or Celebrity ships have self service laundry rooms. They do, however have a laundry service. You may want to think about bringing a travel steamer if you think you'll need it. Its always a good idea to pack suits, dresses in the plastic cleaner bags, they arrive with vertually no wrinkles. I've been packing with them for ever and it does work.

Thanks so much for your reply, Donna. I seemed to remember that RCCL does not have laundry (self) service available. A small inconvenience for a wonderful cruise. Shorts and some t shirts get so wrinkled, but, you are right about the dry cleaning bags===I save them all year until my next cruise, and they help tremendously! Happy cruising! We just cannot wait!

Default No self serve laundry on Serenade of Seas

We just returned from a week on SOS and there is no place you can go to press a shirt. The crew recommended the laundry when we asked about the laundry room provided on so many of the other ships.

kittarwen was asking about Serenade of the Seas not Sovereign of the Seas

Roland,

SOS can go either way, can't it? Serenade or Sovereign...

Nope,
Serenade = SR, Sovereign = SS, Splendour = SP

The poster you were referring to used SOS, not one of those 2-letter designations you like to flaunt.

Since Sovereign of the Seas was first, I presumed SOS meant that ship!
As for the 2-letter designations, they are the official ones!!

You should not "presume" anything Roland. Especially since the title of the thread refers to the Serenade, not Sovereign.

As for the official designations, you are the only one who uses those. The average person reading and writing these posts always use the more familiar 3-letter abbreviations.

Anyone ever look at their luggage tags, seapasses, any of those things? All use the "flaunted" two-letter designations.

Perhaps the average person never goes on a cruise

Tracy,

I am not disputing the official 2-letter designations. I am only saying that people like you and me never use those when we refer to a specific ship. The only time I have ever seen those letters used here are in posts by Roland.

Roland, I consider myself an average person and I have been on 20+ cruises. Perhaps you consider yourself an above average person...

I do consider Roland an above average person and an expert on Royal Caribbean :-)

Tracy,

I guess you are an above average person too! Have a great time on the FR. I know you will.

I am just an average white boy myself.... bigger is not always better....

On another note, as Tracy said, the luggage tags have the 2 letter designations. Afterall, there are three EOS, three SOS, two VOS, three MOS and two ROS.

I am aware of the multiple ships which can be used for each 3-letter abbreviation. My whole point though is that those are the more commonly-used letters on the message boards rather than the official ones! And when the topic of a particular thread specifically names the ship in question and someone responds using the 3-letter designation, why would another person presume that the second person was referring to a different ship when BOTH ships fit the abbreviation?
