For those who've been on deck 7 on the Symphony, is it correct that there's no self service laundry on 7, and that you've got to go up to the one on 8? Thanks.

NONE ON 7 OR 5 and they restrict the one on 10 to Penthouse guests so everyone had to use the one on 8 or 9, one of the few things I like better on Serenity

I suspect the same will apply on the Symphony once they create those new suites on Deck 9, which will leave the rest of the ship (Decks 5, 7 & 8) all having to use the laundry room on Deck 8 which is already inadequate. Hopefully, someone has thought that one out and found a space for a second laundry room to service those decks in the dry dock plans....

No new laundry rooms or improvements to existing laundry rooms in the drydock. However, the new deck 9 penthouses will get their own washer/dryers so deck 9 laundry room should remain unlocked and be even less. crowded. If your stateroom is on deck 5 or 7 you should go to 9, not 8.

Sounds like a benefit of the new washing machines/dryers in the suites is that it will reduce demand of the common area laundry facilities for those in standard rooms and all of the existing room PH/PS/CP categories who don't have them. Hopefully there will not be any issues with leakage.

Whilst you clearly have more knowledge of what will or will not be post drydock than I have, I doubt very much whether the laundry room on Deck 9 will have open access. If you look at the new deck plans the Deck 9 laundry room is situated right in the middle of the new Seabreeze Penthouse and Seabreeze Penthouse Suites, and if you read the blurb on the website for these new suites it lists "self-service launderettes (Exclusive to Penthouse Decks)"... I guess we'll have to wait until the Symphony emerges from her drydock enhancements to know for sure what self-service laundry facilities will be available for use by the standard staterooms guests......
