While it's not a make or break issue for me, I do find it convenient to have self-serve laundry on board, even if it's only to do a quick pressing touch-up. If I know the ship has self-serve laundry,...

Agreed! We were on a motorcycle and were nearly pushed off the road by a van as it came around a corner. It's very twisty, and I wouldn't say it's a two-way road in many places. More like 1 1/2, at...
