Hello everyone! Even though Randy and I have been super busy these last couple of weeks, we think about this cruise every day and are really excited. Luckily we have something big to keep us from losing our minds thinking about this cruise. We are anxiously waiting for the birth of our grandson. He is due in the next couple of weeks and I am waiting to hear from DD so I can head to AZ to welcome him into the world and help her and her husband with whatever they need.
I have a question for those who have done laundry on the ship. Do I need to bring coins or do we use our KTTW card? Are there any suggestions for making laundry as pain free as possible?
Thanks!

Awesome! Congratulations! Is this your first grandchild? Steve and I have one of each from two of our three sons. They're called GRAND for a reason!

No cash necessary as you will use your KTTW card. I'm sure on a cruise this length I will probably do a couple of loads myself.

Hoping all goes well and keep us updated.

What great anticipation that must be as you await the birth of your grandson! Congratulations to your daughter and husband as parents to be and to you both as grandparents to be!

I am going to tag onto your laundry question. Does anyone know if the ship also does dry cleaning?

Yes. In fact Mommaluvsdis and I don't worry about pressing or dry cleaning before we leave and send everything that needs it out the first day. Makes packing so much easier and everything is fresh when you need it. Their prices are very compare able to dry cleaners on land, too.

I just got my Purex 3 in 1 today! Those are the best to travel with if you like to bring your own - they also have detergent for sale.

I got mine on Amazon. They will be a part of my FE pack - I thought with a 14 nighter even if you don't do laundry they work great for keeping things smelling fresh!

Aren't they great? We have 6 grand kids this will be number 7. We are so very excited. This is our youngest daughter's first.

Yes, they have dry cleaning and laundry service. Bag with prices in closet, stateroom attendant picks up with morning cleaning.

pahrumpgirl, Great idea! Really frustrating that you spend money on dry cleaning prior to boarding, but you can't tell from how your clothes look once unpacked!

MPS516, Thanks for the logistics of how DCL works. We've only cruise RCCL and the process sounds about the same.

Thank you both for the dry cleaning info. My friend who is cruising with me said she was planning on packing like she does on a 7 day cruise. That sounded pretty logical to me. When we did a B2B with RCCL, I tried to pack shirts I could hand wash and line dry. Worked well and then sent out some capris and pants to dry clean. RCCL does not have washers and dryers on board. Not sure I really want to spend a ton of time washing clothes on a cruise anyway.

Pressing only services are half the price of full dry cleaning services.

FYI, I have heard that the Mexicali Menu from night 7 has been replaced with a Taste of the Caribbean menu. I have ALL of the menus if anyone is wanting to see them. Feel free to send me a PM if there are any you want.

Also, planning our DCL trips is like crack to me....can't get enough and I like to be super organized about it. I have a mad-crazy chart that I made, showing each day's port, show, menu, dress code, and navigator highlights. If anyone else would benefit from that, I'd be happy to share.
