We are debating our packing list, and wondering how much NCL charges if we wanted to have some laundry done - to save us having to pack for all 10 days. Any one used this service?

Which ship? many of the newer ships have free laundry.All you have to do is purchase the detergant which is Tide and one box will do two loads. Otherwise, about 1/2 way or a little more through your cruise NCl normally offers a special. $20 for all the laundry you can put in the little bags they furnish. These little bags hold about 3 times more than you think they will. We always opt for the deal.

Thanks for your quick response Nita! We are on the Pride of Hawaii next week. Can't wait - and now I won't have to pack so much! :) Have a great night!

My first time on NCL. I'll be on the Jade for an Eastern Med cruise in Apr '08. Is this one of the ships with free laundry?

Have only cruised Princess ships before, and there are laundromats where you can do your own laundry.

Thanks in advance for any info.

NCL ships with self service laundrymats are

Dawn, Jewel, Jade, Pearl, and Gem.

The use of the laundry is free, there is a vending machine for the detergent, which isn't that expensive - a buck or two, which you can avoid if you bring your own detergent.

All NCL ships have a ship laundry that provide valet services. Here's a Valet Service order form



NCL usually has a fill a laundry bag special mid way through your cruise for 20 bucks. Don't expect overnight service with the laundry bag special.

On our first NCL cruise they offered the $20 bags, but on the 6 or so since, they never offered it, and one was a 14 day cruise, luckily they have 1 laundromat with 3 machines on each floor for everyone to fight over.

You can bring your own detergent too.. I would recommend doing laundry very early or very late as people can be absolutely rude and inconsiderate when it comes to fighting over use of the scant facilities.

I hope you all don't mind my bumping this thread to the top. My brother and SIL will be reading this page soon, in search of exactly this information. Just making it easier for them to find.

Thanks NIta, Don and Dusky.

Nita, I believe NCL only offers the fill a bag promotion on just ships without any self service laundry mats, but I'm not sure.
That's might be the reason you haven't seen this promo lately, you've been sailing on ships with self service laundry mats.

Just a thought.
