Laundry is normally $20 by the bag. In Europe the same bag has been quoted at $26.
You can purchase an unlimited plan that costs roughly $7 times the number of days in your cruise.

To send laundry on a per piece basis is one of those "If you have to ask, you can't afford it" things.

Thank you, last year we had the suite package and therefore unlimited laundry which was great, just debating do we buy suite amenities package this year or pay for unlimited laundry as we didn't make full use of suite package?

I recall someone reporting the $9.00 price last year, but it didn't seem to last long.

You're "correcting" someone who is on the ship and in a position to know???

We had the unlimited laundry on the Noordam in March and yes, it was $7.00 a day. I don't really think one needs to pay extra for "unlimited pressing" though as everything that came back from the laundry was pressed.

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy.

Thanks, Ruth, for coming to my defense!

We're leaving this morning. I'm sad but it is time to go home.

Geez! I'm going to be on the Noordam for 25 days in 2014, and con't believe there's no self service laundry facilities on the ship.I hate the idea of trusting my clothes to the ship's laundry.
As it is, I am Elite on Princess, can get my laundry done free, and I choose to launder everything myself in the self service laundry so I get to choose the detergent, water temp and dryer temp.
Guess I am going to be forced to pack a lot more than I planned to!!

I am starting to think the price must increase during the European sailings. There was a $9.00 report last year, then it appeared to decrease to $7.00.

We were in the same position, Elite on Princess so free laundry, but have found the laundry on HAL (Noordam & Westerdam) to exceed the quality of that on the Princess ships. Nothing has been ruined (even sent some unmentionables), comes back pressed or nicely folded and wrapped in tissue paper. We've actually packed less do to the quality of the service.

If I'm not sailing in a suite with free laundry, I sign up at the front desk for unlimited. Worth every penny and it's so nice to send out clothes every day and not hang around a laundry room and fight for a machine, which I've done on other cruise lines.

I was on the recent Eurodam TA cruise from FT Laud to Rome. When we got on I noticed in the closet a slip attached to the laundry bag stating for 2 weeks it was $98, so I signed up at the front desk and was told (I think either $117 or $119) for the 13 day cruise. I politely told the clerk that what was in my room stated it was $98 for 14 days. She wanted to go to my room and see for herself, but made a call to someone and confirmed that was in the cabin. They gave it to me for $98 but said that the price increase was for European sailings. Later I received an updated price list in the room So, they do increase prices in Europe.

This will be me next cruise. Saving the $6,000 and going with an OV but I am going to get either the Suite amenities package or the laundry separately. Going on a cruise Tour afterwards and definitely will be worth it for me & the 3 kids!

I too am spoiled by Princess on doing my own (choosing the temperature, detergent & whether to "hang to dry" to prevent shrinkage). I see some of you would rather have the ship do it and are pleased with the results. How do you work with your wardrobe & ship laundry to make this happen? I do not own pants that I can wash & then dry in a dryer. Right now we have made "almost" B2B reservations for Jan '14. The hotel stay in btx will include us doing some laundry, but I'm open for ideas. Thanks!
