=COOLHello, I am a new member to cruise-addicts.com. I heard on another forum that RCI was giving free laundry and dry cleaning to suite guests. Has anyone else heard or knows anything about this? Tnks,
From the RCI website ... (please note that there are colums, but I couldn't get them to line in in the cut and paste).
Q: Are laundry services provided?
A: Self-service laundry facilities are not provided onboard our ships, but we do offer full laundry and dry cleaning services. We do not provide irons in the staterooms as they constitute a fire hazard.

RCI usually runs a "special" where one day on the cruise they will do one plastc bag of clothes for a flat fee ( usually $20 ). Be sure you get the special bag from your room stewart, otherwise you will be charged the standard rates per item.
I was really hoping they had selfserv laundry on the Oasis of the seas. I can pack enough in a carryon bag as long as I can do laundry half way. But they charge too much for laundry service. Whats better airport luggage fees or laundry service fee part way through a cruise? I really don't like having to lug around so many clothes.
founding member of this thread...................... well the original one.
We used to get the horseradish coming in where 152 comes into town, we always went down 5 and across on 152 on our way to Watsonville and that first mile coming into town was a killer, I think there were some processing plants if I remember, haven't been through there for several years so may well have changed.
Oh OK, now I know........Gilroy Foods [now Conagra] is about a mile east of 101 on 152. That is where they process all the garlic......that's usually the smell we get on warm summer nights. Nancy says it reminds her of going into the dining room aboard ship on Italian night.
We have a son that lives in Watsonville, so we go over Hecker Pass quite often.
