I have just realised that I am talking to Americans when I am from Australia. We have Long Service leave here which I relise is unique to Australia. I have six months leave from work and I also have the opportunity to sell some of my leave back to my employer to fund the trip. This is historical from when we were a British Colony and needed time to get back to England to see family etc. It has just lived on in Australia. We are very unionised and have excellent working conditions

I am doing 3 cruises by your standards. one around Hawaii then over to Vancouver then to Alaska. This is very normal for an Australian . We are so far away from the rest of you all that we would never think of having a holiday fro just one week. It would be a waste of money.

I now realise I will meet 3 groups of cruisers so it probably does not matter if I smell too much . Just joking .

hi Jan. Not uncommon at all in Europe either. In Europe it's called their "holiday". My relatives go away for 3 months out. Good for you. Enjoy your cruises. A'ndrea

Carnival also offers (once per cruise) I believe $15 for everything you can fit into a bag to be washed and folded.

We also use the free wash and fold we get as Platinum members on every cruise. One of my favorite perks.

From what I remember, isn't the bag the size of a grocery store plastic bag? Not very big. Or have they changed it?

I take my own mesh bag, a long piece of rope, and dangle it off the side of the ship....the clothes come out with a nice seashore aroma, and I rinse them in my shower, hang to dry....
