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!

The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
