Yes,this year we were on the Ventura,i used the well equipped laundrette 3 or 4 times,but do take your own powder,you can buy tablets at the shop though.The irons are fine,and the washers and dryers are free.

Yes! The launderette facillites are OK . Take your own washing tablets or soap powder, much cheaper than buying out of shop. Try and go early on port days when everyone goes ashore. A full wash only takes about 30 mins. Drying 20 mins. SO easy!

Yes i used the Laundrette and found it to be very good, i bought my tablets from the shop on board not expensive! as i would have rather taken something decent to wear than load my luggage up with soap powder and increase my baggage allowance. The irons and boards were well kept and easy to use.

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
