I have heard a number of comments from Holland America fans bemoaning the fact that the new Vista Class ships such as Zuiderdam do not have the customary launderette for guests to use.
I have just received a P&O brochure showing the deck plan for the Arcadia, a Vista Class ship that joins the P&O fleet in 2005. It shows launderettes on decks c, D & E.
So it just shows that it was a choice that HAL must have made to not have launderettes rather than a feature that could not be readily accommodated.
