    Golly. Good job mine are pretty sturdy. They've got years of value to catch up on!!!!

    Mind you, the laundry bags in the cabin are 'free' so I guess my laundry bags are even better value.

    Tesco, M&S and Lidl bags are pretty useful as laundry bags too although obviously, if one has a choice, the M&S bag offers a much superior product. I aspire to a Waitrose bag, one day!
    One can but dream!
    The laundry bags on MSC are paper and not exactly massive, maybe the size of A3 paper perhaps, so not a great size or sturdy for taking things home

      M&S for you then or maybe you've reached Waitrose status or you could always sellotape up those holes in a Tesco bag.

      'Our' hotels have large laundry bags. Between them, Cunard and M&S...we're sorted! Re-cycled bags rule...'ish.

      Wow, nearly a whole page on laundry bags for a cruise. Let no one say our forum doesn't have diversive cruising threads!

        Well here is another post on laundry bags/vacuum bags, we have only used vacuum bags for storing clothes, these we purchase from a store called the Range, which sell virtually everything for the home and garden.

        But have always found when we take the clothes out they still need ironing, no matter how well you fold them before putting them in the bags.

        Going on holiday the only clothes which I really need ironed are my shirts and trousers, I find if they are ironed, folded and packed properly in the case, they do not need vacuum bags or ironing when I unpack. I understand how they may save space if used to pack clothes which do not need ironing.

        Maybe we are using the wrong bags, what size vacuum bags do you use.

        We always take a plastic laundry bag for our dirty laundry and keep that in our case.

          At least it's not another political thread and actually relates to cruising!!

          As we fly cruise, and unpack as soon as onboard/luggage delivered, having only packed one or two days before flying, the clothes aren't in there long enough to get too creased. I'd guess when using them for storage as the clothes are packed away much longer they'll be more susceptible to creasing.

            Too right!!

            I use Lakeland vacuum bags at home. Spare bed duvets/bedding are kept in them. My cashmere sweaters are 'summered' in them as they take so little space in wardrobes and other items are vacuum packed away, saving loads of space.
            Vacuum packed summer cottons etc always need ironing but that's no hardship at home.
            As for packing, I have an excellent packer in the form of my husband. It's a bit of a palaver but all our clothes come out virtually creaseless, even after days in a case. Grrrr.

              Hi Mrs M

              Thanks for that we have summer and winter duvets and bedding which we keep in the original duvet bags, kept in the loft where we also have a couple of clothes hanging rails, where our winter clothes are kept hanging during the summer in suit bags etc, visa versa in winter. Our loft has easy access and is boarded and well lit.

              I pack my own case when we go away and I like to think I am a pretty good packer as none of my clothes ever need ironing when I unpack and I am fussy about shirts and trousers being creaseless, except where they are meant to have creases.

                    The only time I've had a severe bout of something that may have been noro was in 1972. I got it from the local water supply, along with a lot of other people in the city; it was nicknamed the Pompey Bug. I lived in a small flat and even then struggled to get from the bed to the toilet, I was so weak. I was a tiny little thing and lost around half a stone, which was the only thing that pleased me.

                    I don't clean my cabin. I do use handrails on the stairs, but then I do that everywhere. I wash my hands a lot, and I use the gel on board ship. Touch wood, I haven't come down with it on board ship.
