The Complete Guide to Laundry Services at Sea


Editor’s note: This blog post was last updated on by

If you’re cruising for one, two or even three weeks, chances are you’re going to want to wash your clothes at least once during your wayfaring adventure atop the high seas. Whilst laundry will likely be the last thing you want to busy yourself with on your next cruise break, washing your clobber will give you the chance to wear your favourite slacks or that sultry little black number on multiple occasions during your trip.

Happily, contemporary cruise ships are equipped with a complete range of on-board laundry services and amenities — giving cruisers the option to wash their clothes as and when they like. If you’re wondering what laundry facilities are offered by a specific cruise line, check out our handy guide to laundry services at sea below.
