This is what has been referred to here. If someone doesn't come and get their clothes when they are finished -- whether dry or not -- their turn with the machine is finished. It is perfectly acceptable to remove the wet or dry clothes from the machine after it has finished and no one has come to claim them. There is no way I am going to pay to have someone else's laundry -- especially if they don't care enough to come back when the dryer was going to finish. They obviously weren't just running a few minutes late because they still hadn't shown up when the next dryer was available.
Really? Really??? So, are you 100% certain that there was not an emergency that happened to that person/family? No, didn't think so. It's called a random act of kindness.

There are benches on the Fantasy, as well...and my Kindle, coffee and I tended our laundry late one night! Not sure if there is a laundry room on EACH deck, but there is one on 7, 8 and 9. We were on deck 8, and the room was teeny tiny, so I used the rooms on 7 and 9.

Thanks! We're on 6 so the room on 7 should be fairly convenient.

sorry but I agree with ibgraves. I mean, your right, there might be an emergency however, if that's the case, there are an awful lot of emergencies on the ship.
as to the person who mentioned that you should try and push the restart button, there is a timer on each machine so you would be able to tell just by looking at it if there is still time left.
long and short, i'm not paying for your laundry and i'm not waiting for you to finish your swim. if its stopped, its stopped. your cloths will be waiting for you on the counter and no, not folded. i'm not your maid either.
that's just me, I hate doing laundry, vacation or not. don't waste my time, I will not waste yours.

Fantasy also has a laundry room on deck 2. Not a huge one, but very adequate. No one was in there when we were.

Have you read the rest of the thread for plenty of examples of people just thoughlessly not paying attention? Clothes are always piled on the counter on the last morning every single cruise because somehow people forget about the fact that they did laundry. If you don't remove the clothes from a machine that has stopped and does not have any time/money left, no one else is going to get their laundry done. The only time I have taken time out of my cruise to do laundry was on the PC repo. We had been in CA for a week previous to the cruise so I did our laundry on the 3rd day when it wasn't busy yet. If I had not stuck around and left our clothes in a washer or dryer, it would have been the right of the next person who came into the laundry room when the other machines were occupied to remove the clothes from the washer/dryer that was out of time...even if it was mine. If there was an emergency, the person can deal with their laundry when they have time to...but not have it occupy a machine that entire time. This is starting to sound very much like the pool chair hog threads.

I said something about needing to wait in line again because by that time a couple more people showed up. She said it was hers to use as many times as she wished. I didn't think so. Very frustrating.

She said she wasn't staying with her laundry because it was her vacation and I reminded her that it was also mine .
So.. According to this lady, you only have to stand in line for splash mountain once, then you can ride it consecutively as many times as you would like to even though the line waits are over 20 minutes.

Humm.... That would be AWESOmE! but that doesn't happen EVER.

HaHa! This happened to DH on our first trip to WDW! He would wear swim trunks at night while his underwear dried from being washed before bed. Guess what is the first thing packed now?

We took my nephew5 on the Mex.Riv. cruise last January. My sister in law packed for him. Even though I gave her a list (14 undies at least) she packed a new 5 pack underwear. SEVEN DAYS ! And ever heard of 'extras'? My mom was washing his undies too. He had gotten sick the last sea day and departure day. Ew. Awful.

Happened to my DH as well!!! He bought a lovely pair of MM boxers in the gift shop and washed/alternated - thank goodness it was only 4 nights! Yes... First thing packed!

I have washed our laundry on every cruise we've been on(can't stand taking my dirty clothes home), and the counters have NEVER been dirty. And if they were I would never put someones clean clothes in filth. I will remove laundry from dryers in order to use them if nobody has come to claim them. I have even been "caught" by the owner of the clothes while I was removing them, and it wasn't an issue-they understood. I would expect someone to do the same with mine, though that would never be an issue as I watch the clock and return in time to get my clothes.

LOL! I love this thread!
Personally, I'm not doing laundry on vacation, so those of you on the Fantasy Feb 16-23 have one less family to share the machines with!
