What does one do for laundry on a river cruise. I noticed in FAQ that no laundry or laundromat facilities on the ship.Do I just pack extra. 12 days is a long time without laundry.
Thks for the info

We were on Scenic & they did have laundry service but most people just washed their things in the sink ..take wash/wear quickdry items then you do not have to worryI think you mean 6.50 euros, which is about 8USD.
The laundry was quite pricey 650euro for a pr of trousers
The River Queen (Uniworld) also has a laundry room.I wish they all did for past cruisers..
One of the perks for past passengers on Uniworld is that they will do laundry for you once on an 8 day cruise. We did send it out - and it was returned promptly that evening.
We usually do some hand washing when we cruise. We tend to travel lowest category (aka Aquarium Class) and there is often a ledge below the window. So, we can hang laundry in the shower area, or lay it flat to dry below the window.
Can't remember prices - as we have not paid for laundry to be done. However - each cabin usually has a price list posted somewhere.
If you know which line you will be travelling on, you can post a new thread - and ask people to look up the prices for you, and post when they return.

Sometimes details tend to blur... but I seem to remember at least one shower on a river cruise that had a clothes line built right in. But - can't swear to that.Yes, Fran, several cruise lines have the pull-string clothes line in the shower. The last trip that we took, Viking, had one.
Laundry service is the way to go unless you want to pack tons of clothes or do your undies in the bathroom sink.I agree. Who wants to do your own laundry when on vaxation?
It amazes me that people spend $10,000 or more on a river cruise yet they get upset about spending less than $100 for having laundry service. Yes it's a relatively expensive service but so is your trip.
Just put $100 in your vacation budget and you can get a couple of sets or more of clean and pressed items.
We did a 14 day Viking cruise and we rinsed out undies and sox as necessary and hung to dry on the line provided over the shower. Major washing was done once in a laundromat at a town where we stopped for more than one day. We were in Europe for over 5 weeks in Oct/Nov and only took one medium suitcase each.You are my hero! I know I need to get better and packing. I just always add stuff "just in case". My goal for our 18day European trip is to pack much less. You have inspired me!!
