Silver Whisper laundromat photo


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 clothing.

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.)

  • Wash small items by hand. Bathtubs have retracting clotheslines--and because the Silver Whisper and Silver Shadow have separate bathtubs and shower stalls, you can have a shower even if your bathtub is decorated with hanging laundry like a street in Naples or Lisbon.
