I was told by a few people that they have a laundromat on the ship where you can wash your own clothes rather than having them do it for you at a minimal price. Is this true? If so we don't have to take as many clothes and will save on luggage space! Excited as we are first time cruisers and leave in 9 days!! We are on the"Navigator"

RCCL ships do not have laundry facilities onboard. Showers do have a retractable clothes line in them so you can hand wash items and let them dry.

Take a hard look at what you are packing. Most people (ourselves included) take things that they never end up wearing.

21 cruises and we've never had to wash anything...usually we have clothing leftover that never got worn.....but if you do need to do some laundry, hang it in the shower....Remember, you are on vacation and nobody really cares what you are wearing and if it's wrinkled...Just go and have a smashing good cruise...

If You need to have laundy done, they offer a special were you get a laundry bag you can stuff for $20...cleaned and folded. I never had to use laundy service yet.

It's too bad they don't have selfserv laundry. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to pack so much in a few year when we go on the Oasis. I've already been experimenting with a carryon for my cruise in May. At least they'll have laundry. I don't like to have to pack so much for a week. Can anyone actually get by with only a carryon for 8 days, and no laundry. What do you pack?

Just how big is your carryon?...I don't think I could get a 7-9 cruise in a carryon....unless you are planning on living in shorts and t-shirts...but as stated here, you can get your clothes washed for a fee.....I guess you could wear many layers of clothing on the plane....and put the rest in the carryon....Whatever you decide, just have a great cruise..

If you have water shoes, I highly recommend them. If not, don't worry about it. They do have them on board if you want. Just make sure you have room to pack what you buy while you're gone.
