Hello from the Royal Princess


Recommended Posts

Question for Kiwi_cruiser about the Royal: I know that Princess has self-service laundry facilities on their ships, what I am not sure of is A) price per load and B) whether the washing machines have an integrated detergent dispenser (do I need to bring some of my own laundry soap, or is it provided)? 


Thanks for any insight you can provide.

It is $3 to wash and $3 to dry.  They do have a dispenser for detergent, dryer sheets, etc.  When we cruise we bring our own detergent pods and dryer sheets.  Much less expensive.


So the detergent and dryer sheets are an extra cost? Ok then, I'll bring my own 3-in-1 sheets. When we sailed HAL last summer, the washing machines provided detergent as part of the $2 cost.


Thanks very much!

We missed our first port today 😥


We missed Puerto Madryn as it was too windy for us to dock.

So sorry to hear this.


There is another Royal thread addressing this too. One poster blames Princess.

I went to Volunteer Point  :classic_biggrin: and saw these guys :classic_cool:




Before  I visited these birds, I was told that there would be an "aroma" from their droppings.  My nose detected none.  Did you?  A trip to this part of the world to see first hand these creatures is so worthwhile!

Table was in the closet, NO barrel chair and NO way to get one 😞

Oh dear, the chairs have gone, well and truly.  Great blog and pics here, thanks Stu.
