Default Strange laundry question...

We plan on buying the laundry package on our upcoming cruise.

If I were to put my panties in a mesh bag, would they just wash them in that as opposed to letting them fly around loose? I'll hand wash my bras, but I really prefer my panties to be washed in the laundry when possible, and I've found that the lace gets pulls when they aren't in the mesh bag.

I thought they put all your clothes in a mesh bag anyway. I don't know; I think you'd have to ask.

Thanks. I might just end up hand washing to be on the safe side.

Default they are good to work with

I have found they take special requests for laundry. I have asked them not to put my silk shirts in the dryer and they have always hung them to dry. Just put a note at the bottom of your laundry slip and you should be fine.

They will take specific requests, but they also have occasional mad moments ... like the time they started attaching the identifier labels with a staple gun

So if your delicates are particularly, well, delicate then you might want to send a test batch and see if you're happy with the result. If not there is a retractable laundry line in the shower.
