Disney Wonder - washing machines?

Hi, I have just looked at the deck plans but unable to find any clothes washing facilities. We are on a b2b and with baggage restrictions I was hoping to be able to wash our clothes. Are there any facilities?
Thanks

I was looking at that when we made our cabin selection as I didn't want to be too near it in case there's lots of noise or traffic so to speak. I found them on decks 2, 6, and 7. There could be more though, that I didn't notice...

Definitely laundry rooms

But they aren't on every deck like the Fantasy. On longer cruises, it can get busy in there. Figure there is only 3 or 4 for the whole ship. Best to try to bring enough clothes to avoid the hassle. If not, be ready to keep trying to get available machines. If you are an early riser, that may be your best shot.

They are on a few different decks but there are five washers and five dryers in each one (might even be six). I always do laundry on the longer cruises and usually don't have much trouble finding one or two that are available. Sometimes you have to wait for someone to come back and remove their clothes but typically people are pretty good about it.

Thank you all for the information. I found another deck plan which did show the laundry rooms

There was noone in the one on deck 7 when I used it in Alaska. I did use it while my kids napped on Ketchikan day, so I am sure that was a factor, but it was easy!

Smart thinking on the noise factor! I had gone back and forth between 9000 and 9500 for my recent Dream cruise, and ultimately settled on 9000 - the laundry is across from 9500. When I went to iron a skirt for Palo brunch, there were two different families in the laundry room (one folding and one getting things going), and the voices while friendly were not what I'd consider "inside" voices at all. It made me VERY glad I made the decision I did!

If you're on a B2B, the morning when everyone else is getting off the ship will be a perfect time to do laundry, you'll have the room to yourself!

Room 6598

We were in room 6598 (5B) and had a laundry room very close to us. I did a load of laundry because my husband didn't bring enough clothes... I had no problem finding an empty washer and dryer. I think there was one other person in the laundry room with me, and it was a sea day...

We were just on the Wonder earlier this month and stayed on deck 6. We were mid ship and pretty close to the laundry room but was on the other side so the noise wasn't a factor. I did laundry twice and both times, I didn't have any issue finding an empty machine. The noise was pretty noticeable walking up to the room, probably at least 5 rooms down the hallway. I didn't do laundry late at night but I did feel sorry for the people in the nearby staterooms since the laundry room is open 24 hours, I think.
I brought foldable hamper so that made it very easy to carry my clothes to the laundry room.

We did laundry twice on our recent Wonder cruise. FWIW, the machines were much less crowded earlier in the week.

We are b2b so intend washing then but is there washing liquid/powder available to purchase?
