These posts are all accurate. Best to do hand laundry yourself, and in that regard, try to bring thinner undies and socks to speed drying. I set up a little laundry day during the voyage in the bathroom sink. Washed, wrung, placed on towel draped chair, changed water and rinsed twice, wrung, squeezed out with towel, then hung on the retractable line in the shower. I wished I had brought thinner socks, but it worked out fine all in all. They replace your towels very generously, so no worries there. The prices for laundry service were per piece and were very high, so I was glad to have brought some Woolite packets.
