Lynda folds her laundry
Lynda from Colorado was one of the nicest passengers we met on
the Silver Whisper. We met Lynda and her husband Ron on our first evening
at dinner, and she later showed us how to use the washers and dryers in the
self-service laundry on Deck 4.
The Silver Whisper has three launderettes, each with two
washers, two dryers, and an ironing board. There's no charge for using the
machines, and detergent is also free.
Unfortunately, it can be hard to get a washing machine or dryer
when the ship is full. And early in the voyage, the ironing boards are often in
use as passengers iron the wrinkles out of their formal dresses and other
Here's how to avoid queuing for the laundromat:
Use the ship's laundry and dry cleaning service. Prices are
about what you'd pay on shore, and it costs only a few dollars to press a suit
or dress--and when you give dirty or wrinkled clothes to your stewardess by 9
a.m., your clothes will be back by 6 p.m. (Note: If you're in a high-priced
suite, there's no charge to have your laundry done.)
