We always bring enough clothes such that doing laundry - even with the ship's cleaners - isn't necessary.

We do the same. I have never even been in one of the laundry rooms. Saw the same situation once where this one group was in there all day doing laundry. Was the same group that was arguing in the hallway about $10. I just shook my head.

We were spending the week after our Alaskan cruise with in-laws in Seattle. I packed one suitcase with "Seattle clothes" which I left at the in-laws while we were cruising. The problem was that I packed all of our underwear in the Seattle suitcase. I did spend time in the passenger laudramat. . . It wasn't like we could spend the week in our swimsuits! Lesson learned....

I also never do laundry on the ship. That would be like cooking or doing dishes on the ship. So not appropriate.

However, I did walk in one once. It is small but adequate for a quick load (not two).

Why would anyone (other than an emergency) want to do laundry on the ship? Waste of good cruise time.

Jack 2007:

Since this post of yours is titlted "idots on cruise ships", you should check-out my post titled "new sleeping arrangements for one cruise ship passenger". It is further down the list here in General Cruise Chat.

Unfortunately, yes, I've run into many. The ones that let their children jump up and down on the sofas, climb in the curtains, and the ones that act like there's no one else on the ship but them. The smokers that are inconsiderate (I do smoke, but am trying to quit). And the ones that want to show off their bodies (who shouldn't) especially at the buffet (nothing better than a big old hairy beer belly to whet your appetite). But as with every day life, you just go somewhere else.

Sorry guys... It was all my fault. I had a little too much to drink and, upon returning to my stateroom, I ordered room service. I told them that I wanted the bread toasted!! Well, it wasn't. So, I stumbled down to the laundry room, turned on the iron, and placed it on top of my bread. The rest is history... Good sandwich, though.

jack2007, after three years as 1st officer on cruise ships I could give you a mile long list of the stupidity some people showed.

Besides from the weather and girls, pax stupidity was in fact the most popular conversation topic on the bridge
