Hi, last time I was on Island Star April 2008, I sent a few items to the laundry and I thought the prices quite reasonable. Approx prices were T shirts £1.60, Trousers £2.30, Jeans £2.00, Dress £3.30, Shorts £1.60, it was a quick and good service and everything came back in first class condition. The price list and instructions on what you have to do is found in your cabin. Hope this has been of some help.
Thank you for your answer it was most helpful.
Cruised twice on Island Escape this year, towards the middle of the cruise there was an offer of a certain number of items at a set price which made it more reasonable. We had a clothes line in our shower which made it easy to wash out underwear etc. Would have preffered a self service launderette as on thompsons and Ocean as it means you can bring less clothing, perhaps the star will aquire them once Thompsons take over.
Hiya star is not going to thompson its escape cant see this happing lose lot of money that way cause quite popular i think .
We disembarked from the Island Star on the 1 January 2009, and the laundry prices do not appear to have increased. The only comment I will add to the previous post is that if you require your laundry to be returned to you on the same day and not the next day, there is a 50% surcharge for the express service.
Price list and laundry bag will be in the wardrobe either on top of the safe or on a hanger, if you are still concerned ask your cabin steward or phone Guest Relations (ext 70)
Enjoy your cruise.
