A couple of questions

Hey everyone, just 11 days to go! I'm so excited! I wanna thank everyone for their replies to my previous questions.
I was gonna start packing and I had some more questions:
1. For dining with kids: is there formal wear required for dinner? I know that shorts aren't ok, but are jeans and sneakers/sandals all right? Are the kids not allowed to wear shorts either?
2. Is there a laundry or washing machine facility on-board the ship?
3. What are the telephone facilities on the ship? Will I get signal aboard the ship or should I leave the ship number provided in the catalogue at my office?
4. Any idea what the internet charges are like on board the ship?

I would really appreciate any help regarding these queries, and see all of you'll soon!

1. I think it is fine for kids to wear shorts, but having checked the weather you might need a pair of long pants
2. Yes. You swipe your room card to pay
3. No clue
4. Costly and unbelievably slow. Think old dial u

I have to work when I'm on each cruise and I buy 500 minutes of connectivity and it costs $150. It is not the fastest, but I was never disconnected suddenly. There is wi-fi in the rooms and it is reliable, just not very fast.

I never tried any of the hotspots on the ship. I always connected within our room.

I tried logging into check my emails once and took ages to even get connected and cost a small fortune, for nothing.

At sea you won't get a signal, only at sea signal, which again is unbelievably expensive. On port days you will be able to connect to local networks and find wifi spots in the towns.

Laundry on each floor, they are usually busy in mornings and evenings,

One of the posters doing a later Med Cruise posted this in their pretrip report. It's a great link for Villefranche

Also, any idea whether payments on board the ship will be in euros or in dollars?

Just had my last day in work!!!!! Got the weekend to pack and make sure I don't need anything else. If I do, I then have 2 days to sort it.

Just need to drop my tortoise to my brothers and put the cat in the cattery just before we leave and I will be all set. WOW, the day is almost here.
