So it appears our nearest launderette is on the deck one floor up from ours. Would we be committing a grave faux pas by using it?
rather than walk those never-ending QM2 passageways (you'll see what I mean)You mean when you stand at one end of the corridor and you can't see the other end because it's disappeared over the horizon ?
You mean when you stand at one end of the corridor and you can't see the other end because it's disappeared over the horizon ?Into infinity and beyond.
Into infinity and beyond.I was tempted to reply that if the ship is of equal length, then why is one passageway on the port side the longest on board, surely it should be the same on the other side?
Deck 6, port side passageway is, I think, the longest on board. Quite a walk end-to-end. I timed walking it once, at a gentle pace, now forgotten the result!
I use that handy little bag in the room. Pop your clothes in, and magically they arrive back all clean and pressed !!That's odd - wash and fold at home is $1.20 a pound, and when we were in England in November, I was able to wash four days of our dirty laundry for about 15 quid.
Oddly, it's the one service on board that's cheaper than at home and I do take pleasure from not being ripped off when using it.
I was tempted to reply that if the ship is of equal length, then why is one passageway on the port side the longest on board, surely it should be the same on the other side?There is a wall on the starboard side of deck 6 that separates the forward cabins from the rest. I've never noticed but maybe there isn't a similar wall on the port.
But I won't
Doesn't matter which launderette you use, but please don't throw the iron at anyone!I make no promises!
Most ships I've been on (admittedly a fairly low number) seem to follow a pattern similar to QM2 - a laundry room here, a laundry room there...If you look at the deck plans QE https://www.cunard.com/Documents/201...plans-2019.pdf You can clearly see how they are laid out. Modular construction.
What time does the laundrette open in the morning?I think it was 7:30 a.m. when we were on a westbound TA this past summer. No matter the time, it seemed there was always a queue of people waiting.
One peculiarity on QM2 is that the launderettes are not "stacked" as they are on the other ships. Must be something to do with the one off design. Logically all the laundry facilities would be expected to be run vertically through the decks. Another example of the somewhat awckward lay out. David.Or quite the opposite.
