Default Self serve laundry on NCL Epic?

Does anyone know if there are self serve washers and dryers on the NCL Epic? If so, what is the cost per load? Thanks!

There are no self-service laundry facilities on ANY NCL ship. They used to have such facilities on a few ships but several years ago, they closed them all down.

To the best of my knowledge, of the major mass marketed cruise lines, you won't find self-service laundries on NCL, RCCL, Celebrity and the newer ships on HAL. Only Princess, Carnival and HAL's ships built before Zuiderdam have them. There also were self-service laundries on QM2.

This is something I wish NCL would bring back so I could pack less.

Having the laundry is a big plus for me, too. Looks like the trend of all lines is away from them, unfortunately. Heard that the maintenance is a problem and bet they make more money from laundry fees. Plus doing away with laundries gives them more cabins to sell.
All pluses for the cruise lines and not for me.

As stated above, no self-service facilities onboard any NCL ship. Look for the Bag Special ($24.95) and cram everything you can into the bag.

At least Platinum Latitudes members get a free bag of laundry. That helps.
