Thanks everyone. I didn't plan on doing laundry, but good to know that there's those services onboard. Does the guest services / pursers / casino give out change, or should I plan on bringing some quarters?
Good to know about not charging for the excursions until I take them. I like that way better as well. There was an instance last time when we couldn't take an excursion, because the port got cancelled due to bad weather (Grand Cayman, on Royal Caribbean), so RCI just refunded that and the port fees by means of an onboard credit.
