Just found out that on the new HAL Zuiderdam they do not have any self service laundrys.
That is correct. That is the new style of ship that Carnival, Celebrity, and RCCL are using with the very narrow decks. They don't have room for laundry.
Funny, we had self service laundry on the Carnival Pride!
Not sure about anyone else, but on a 10 day cruise or longer, I like having the self service laundry. I am sorry and very disappointed not to see self service laundry on the new Vista Style ships.
You're on vacation.....Enjoy!! Let someone else to the few things you absolutely HAVE to have laundered before you return home. How many hotels/resorts have you stayed in that have self-service laundries? I have never in 40 years of travel ever seen washers/dryers in any hotel we have stayed in....and that's ALOT of hotels! JMHO
I agree that if the cruise is longer than 7 nights, you really do need to have self serve laundry. 7-night cruise, I can get by. Oh well, keep on sailing the good old ships.
I think the self service laundries are terrific. We took advantage of them on the Grand in Sept.. Wonderful! Also, fyi the Marriott Marina in FLL has a self service laundry room with two washers and driers. Very handy for bathing suits , undies etc. during vacations, or precruise stays.
our feeling is that we are on vacation and that we would rather pack a few more items then take away from our well earned vacation time doing laundry
the only exception to the above comment was on our last cruise where we upgraded to a full suite and one of the perks is free laundry and drycleaning.
the laundry comes back on a wicker tray covered with tissue paper----very classy
lougee...isn't a nice treat to have the laundry returned in that wicker tray? Such a nice "touch".

and it free too if you dont figure how much more you are paying for the full suite in order to get this "free" service lol
