Default No Self Serve Laundry?

I just read the Royal does not have self serve laundry or irons on their ships other than their laundry service...that blows !

Yes, I'm one who packs light and will do two loads of laundry mid week and also iron once I board the ship.

That is truly the one thing I don't like about Royal Caribbean, they need to get some self service laundry rooms. I too like to pack a little less and do just one load of laundry during the week, makes it so much nicer when you do get back home. Plus, like you mentioned, less to pack.

I can work around the laundry but I need an iron, I iron almost everything. Luckily I will be staying in a condo a few days before the cruise and I can iron my stuff there. I might need to invest in a hanging garment bag as that will keep stuff pretty wrinkle free. Rolling clothes makes no difference from what I've learned, will bring along Downey wrinkle release spray too.

Royal has never had laundry rooms or irons for passenger use, at least since I've been cruising with them starting in 1993. NCL had them, but removed them. I think HAL, Carnival, and Princess are the sole holdouts.

I've realized I need to learn about Royal as I don't know much about what they offer.

Does Royal have afternoon tea? We enjoy this on Carnival.

Towel Animals ? Always fun , especially when you go to the pool and you see them on the lounge chairs first thing in the morning.

I hear you have to request robes but not guaranteed to get one.

I only had to ask once for robes, they were still being cleaned from the last cruise, otherwise they are usually in your cabin when you arrive.

Thanks for the list of lines that do have self serve laundry. I forgot who told me that Carnival was pretty much the only line to have it, I found that hard believe.
