I thought I would start a thread, for anyone having questions. I know our fellow cruisers will have the answers. I will organize the questions on the second post with the answers for all to see.

Does anyone know the cost of doing laundry on the ships? - Not sure, but can be charged on room card
Is the laundry room open all the time? - not while in port
What type of laundry detergent is available to purchase? - unknown at this time

The only thing I can contribute to the laundry question is the following list of where the rooms are on the Dream.
deck 10 midship - starboard - opposite 10572
deck 9 forward - starboard - opposite 9500
deck 8 aft - port - opposite 8150
deck 7 forward - port - opposite 7014
deck 6 forward - starboard - opposite 6508
deck 5 most aft - - opposite 5192
deck 2 forward - port - opposite 2002
Presumably the Fantasy will have them in the same location.

I understand that you can buy detergent, etc with your room key, which is also how you pay for the machines themselves.

    I think you can't use washers while we're at port. Other than that, I thnk laundry rooms are 24hrs.
    I don't buy soap at laundry places. I use Purex 3in1 sheets, since they're not much bigger than a dryer sheet. Might try the pre-measured 'pods' that Tide has come out with. Travel sites on internt might have other options, too.

    I've looked for the Purex 3in1 sheets here, but can't find them. I also can't use Tide...so I just might have to take my own...thanks for the info.

    I do know the the best money I spent on PCC 2.0 was getting my dinner clothes pressed by the laundry service onboard. It was less than $15 (I really think it was less than $10) to press a couple of pairs of pants and 3 tops. I put the things out the first night and had them back for dinner the 2nd night. I will definitely do that again.

    I find that I can get all my ironing done leading up to the safety drill - no one else uses the laundry room then and then I can enjoy the rest of the week...

    That's a great idea too....but if I know me, I'll be exploring the ship right after lunch before the drill.

    Iron?? :confused3 That's what travel-knits are for. And Downy Wrinkle Release.
    I'm on vacation. Don't want to waste it ironing [not that I iron that often anyway. :lmao::rotfl:].

    I understand shops and the casino (if DCL had one) being closed while in port, but washing machines? :confused3 That makes no sense, and I would bet that isn't the case. If they really do close the laundry rooms while the ship is in port, it's a STUPID thing to do!

    Tried to use washers once while in port. Probably closed because of regs at port about water waste. Or that the closest I can surmise.

    If I need to do any laundry on that trip, it will be at WDW before boarding the ship. I have no need to do laundry on a 7-night cruise.

    I'm trying to cut back on the amount of clothing we usually take....DGD always takes too much, and I figured that if I do laundry one night, that would help on the amount...still thinking about it though, not sure I want to waste time doing laundry when there's stuff more interesting to do on the ship.

    For our DCL Baltic cruise - we boarded in Dover and as soon as we could get to our room, i started laundry - after spending a week in London - I had packed all of our dirty laundry in our carryon - I saw our hostess in the hall and asked and she said to go for it - everything was done by the time the safety drill was done - no one wanted to use either washers or dryers

    :)

    Subscribing! We are first time cruisers and any info is appreciated.
    So anyway, my first questions are about dining. Being a podcast cruise, will they seat you with other dis'ers for dinner? Also, what is the dress for dinner? Are long pants required for men? Would nice golf shorts and a collared shirt be appropriate?
    I always overpack so I will have something appropriate...but dbf brings the necessities.

    I can see the transfers on PCC 4.0 might be a tad confusing so here goes. I am getting in on November 28 & i'll be at Sports by the time the 8th comes around. I am doing the DCL transfer to Port Canaveral & after I get off the ship i'm heading to Pop for one 4 parks in 1 day adventure before flying back that sunday at some point in the afternoon.

    I'm guessing I have to get off the DCL bus & transfer to a DME bus to get back to Pop but i'm not completely sure. I am also guessing the DCL bus that picks me up at Sports & takes me to the airport isn't a direct trip either & i'll have to switch buses in order to head to Port Canaveral. I'm not sure either way, any advice would be appreciated. TIA!
