Default No self service laundry room on Magic !

I am enquiring where the self service laundry room is on Magic and the Carnival agent tells me there isn't any for Magic . There is only laundry valet service on Magic. I hope this is not true. I hope she is just making a mistake or her info is not updated.

Could someone who has just been cruising on Dream tell me whether there is a self service laundry room ? Magic is supposed to be a sister ship of Dream.

Thanks.

There was self-service laundry on the Dream... I think there were three maybe, but I'm sure someone else will chime in here as well... there was one on the floor we stayed on for sure (deck 7)

Here's the locations for the public laundries on the Magic:

Main Deck 2 - midship / across from 2375
Empress Deck 7 - midship / across from 7347
Lido Deck 10 - forward / across from 10264


The locations are identical to those on the Dream.

I imagine Platinum cruisers will still get complimentary wash and fold.

On a 7 day cruise, how much laundry do you need to do?

Looking at the deck plans, Carnival Magic has the same white space in the laundry room locations that Carnival Dream has. I don't think they did away with them.

Cool Carnival ALWAYS has self serve....

...smart move; I bet CCL makes more per ship of combined self and valet laundry than RCI makes per similarly sized ship with just valet laundry (some will just opt NOT to do laundry
if it is the more expensive valet).

Hey I like RCI, but is seems they just aren't as savvy in their business models as Carnival.

Dream has 3 laundry rooms but they are not marked on deck plans and are barely noted. One is on deck 10 and I think it is across from 10224. Others are on Decks 2 and 7

Each laundry has an ironing area and a soaking tub in addition to the washers and dryers.

I did laundry twice in 12 days, so I know that.

We were on the Magic in May out of Barcelona and had to do the laundry five days out. Yes there are self service laundries onboard. Three dollars to wash and three dollars to dry. Have a nice trip.

I'd be looking for another agent. But it just goes to show you that you can call carnival with questions-- doesnt mean you will get the right answer

Just off the Magic and I can confirm there are self-serve laundries. We used them.

I always bring some laundry powder and dryer sheets so that saves $.

There were only three washers in the laundry room but more dryers. One day we rinsed things out in our cabin and threw them in the dryer. Saved us the time of waiting for a washing machine along with the $3.

This was a 12-day cruise, so yes... we were laundry challenged! Platinum cruisers on board were sending things out every other day with good results.
