it true that if you wait until the "last minute" to
book a cruise, you get a much better rate?
Unfortunately, that rumor has been around for a long
time. And it isn't true. There was a time you could
walk right up the pier with your suitcase in hand,
book the cruise, pay on the site and board the ship.
That was long ago. Not only do today's security measures
prevent that from happening (all sales for cruises
are cut off several days in advance and all manifests
for sailing passengers are put through a security screen)
-- the cruise lines prefer to offer special rates for
early booking rather than last minute rates.
Those passengers booking early get better rates, and
much better cabin selection as well. All bookings are
tied into a computerized system that controls fares based
on capacity. As the ship fills up -- the rates go up
as well. The cruise lines know if the ship has reached
a certain capacity by a certain date prior to sailing,
whether or not that ship will sail full. They will of
course, charge what the market is willing to pay. Everything
is based on supply and demand. However, we do offer to
our guests -- if a lower price becomes available after
you have booked your cruise -- we will secure that lower
rate for you and apply it to your booking. You can't
lose by booking early. You certainly can lose by booking
late. Not only are you likely to pay higher rates and
have less options for cabin selection -- it is quite
possible that you won't be able to obtain space at all.
|Q: How long is a price
quote good for?
A: Unless you
have instructed us to hold an option for you, which
requires the names of the people who are sailing, the
quote is subject to change until such time you are
ready for us to take an option. An option will hold
the quote for 1 - 3 days in order for you to make a
decision. After that time frame, a deposit will be
required by the cruise line in order to secure the
space for you. The deposit can be from $100 per person
for the shorter cruises -- $250 per person for the
7 night cruises and $350 - $600 per person for longer
cruises, depending on the cruise line. They will inform
us of the amount of the deposit as well as the date
it is due at the time we take the option for you. Your
deposit is fully refundable by the cruise line should
you change your mind about sailing up until the date
they have specified as their penalty date -- and usually
that is up until the date of the final payment due
date -- ranging from 70 days prior to the sailing (for
most cruise lines) to as much as 120 days prior to
the sailing for the longer sailings on the luxury cruise
lines. Holiday sailings also usually require final
payment further out from the cruise date than normal
sailings. Once you have made deposit -- your price
is guaranteed not to go any higher regardless of the
rates going up for new bookings.
|Q: Do I need a passport?
A: All cruises,
regardless of their embarkation and sailing port, require
positive proof of citizenship. For all US residents,
some cruises -- those going to the Caribbean, Alaska,
Mexico, or Hawaii will accept a certified copy of the
birth certificate (state issued with raised seal, no
photostats, no souvenir hospital certificates) along
with a government or state issued picture ID. Children
traveling with parents under the age of 16 will need
only their birth certificates. However, passports are
recommended if you have them. All non-US residents
will require a valid passport along with multiple entry
Visas for all travel. All non-US residents should call
their own consulate in order to ascertain the necessary
documentation you will need for your travels. It does
vary depending on your actual citizenship and the ports
you will be calling on. This is a passenger responsibility.
The cruise lines have no control over this issue, it
is an INS rule that is strictly adhered to. Without
proper documentation, you will not be permitted to
board the ship -- no exceptions are made. HOWEVER --
we do recommend that all passengers carry valid passports
for all travel. If you do not have a passport, perhaps
you should consider applying for one. As our world
changes, personal preparedness for changes in our travel
documents would be wise.
|Q: What kind of clothes
do I need to bring?
A: It really depends
on where you are going, which cruise line, and the
length of the cruise. All cruise lines permit resort
type casual wear aboard the ships during the day. No
swim wear is permitted in the dining rooms, however,
food is available on the deck for those wishing to
remain in their swim wear for the entire day. The dining
rooms require that appropriate clothing along with
shoes, be worn at all times. Country Club type casual
wear is permitted most nights in the dining room (no
jeans, shorts, or tee-shirts) and on most cruises there
will be at least one formal night (shorter cruises,
less than 7 night) -- for 7 night cruises there are
two formal nights -- and for longer cruises there will
be at least three formal nights, and depending on the
cruise line, there could be more. Most cruise lines
will also designate at least one other night during
a 7 night cruise as "semiformal"
and more on a longer cruise. Those nights suggest a coat
and tie for the men, and dressy pants outfits or dresses
for the ladies -- much like you wear out to a fine dining
type restaurant. Formal nights suggest dark suits and
ties or tuxedos for the men and after-five type apparel
for the women. However, many women do choose to wear
very conservative type dresses rather than the flashy
sequined ones. It is certainly a personal choice and
your interpretation of "formal" that remains within
the cruise's guidelines for appropriate attire. For those
guests not wishing to participate in the formal nights,
alternative dining options are offered on most all the
ships (buffets, bistros, pizza bars, etc.), as well as
|Q: Is a cruise suitable
A: It doesn't
matter how old you are, there is something for everyone!
Most cruise ships have wonderful programs for children
that can keep them entertained all day.
Most all cruise lines are very family friendly. There
are children's counselors on board and many age-appropriate
activities are provided. Most children meet new friends
and become avid cruise enthusiasts just as the adults
do. Many families are choosing cruising for family vacations
due to the educational opportunities provided for visiting
new and exciting places as well as the opportunity for
everyone (including moms and dads) to participate in
as much or as little as they personally choose to do.
And there are wonderful options to choose from! There
are no excuses for boredom on today's cruise ships.
|Q: Why do cruises seem
so high in price?
A: When the costs
of a land-based vacation is totaled up, the price can
be staggering, and far greater than the budget expected
when the trip began. Try adding up the cost of a first
class hotel, three gourmet meals a day, plus snacks
all day long, the transportation costs of changing
locales every day, professional live entertainment
every night, nightclubs, dancing and discos every night,
activities, parties, first run movies, and more (that
is what you get for your cruise fare) -- then compare
that with your cruise price -- and we believe you will
find that the value for the cruise far outweighs the
value for the land vacation that affords you the same
luxuries. Today's floating resorts just can't be beat
|Q: Will I get seasick?
A: With the technology
these days, the ships have everything including stabilizers
to keep the ship from rocking. So, there is almost
no chance of getting seasick.
For those fearful passengers who expect to get seasick,
they certainly will. For most of those who do not expect
to get seasick, they probably will not. In fact, most
people report that they are usually not even aware when
the ship is sailing. For those who do become ill, there
are many new products today to help prevent discomfort
ranging from patches to be worn (must be prescribed by
a physician) to mild OTC meds designed just for that,
some herbal remedies, as well as various types of pressure
bands to be worn on the wrists and cause absolutely no
side effects whatsoever. We do recommend that no "preventive"
meds be taken until you actually do suffer from some
type of discomfort from the motion. The oral medications
can cause dizziness and drowsiness, that you might not
even need to experience in the first place.
|Q: How much luggage
can I take with me?
A: The airlines
all restrict the number of bags permitted per passenger
to one personal item (purse or briefcase) and one additional
small carryon. They permit two bags to be checked that
fall within the guidelines of size and weight for domestic
or international travel. The particular airline for
which you are traveling on will be able to give you
the specific information for them. If you are driving
to the port, you are not as limited as you are for
air travel, however, keep in mind that most passengers
travel with far more items than they will need on the
trip, and there is limited closet and drawer space
in most cabins. The ships all have great shops and
stores on board for "forgotten" items, and also
for new clothing, as well everything from tee-shirts
and swimsuits to formal attire. There are jewelry stores,
perfume shops, cosmetics, and just about every other
type of item available in any mall. Save some space
in your luggage to pack those new clothes and gifts
purchased either at sea or in port. All bags and passengers
go through the same screening process for boarding
a cruise ship as you do for boarding an airplane. Carry
all medications and valuables with you in your carryon
bags. Luggage checked in an airport can no longer be
locked since all luggage is now subject to being opened
and searched at a far greater number with the new regulations.
All bags are now screened for explosives. Anything
that even remotely appears to be "suspicious"
can necessitate the hand search of a particular bag.
If bags are locked and cannot be opened should they
deem that yours needs to be -- the bag will not be
processed through -- but will be disposed of.
|Q: Should I purchase
A: As your travel
professionals -- we never travel without it. Most people
are unaware that their own medical insurance is not
valid outside the US. While only a small percentage
of those traveling will ever need medical attention
in a foreign port, or on board a ship -- some do. The
cost of an unexpected illness or injury can be devastating.
Travel insurance covers those expenses up to a particular
amount depending on the actual coverage you choose.
It will also cover your medical evacuation from the
ship, should it be necessary, and also will provide
transportation to return you back home should you have
to terminate your cruise or trip. Again, the limitations
of the coverage are dependent on the type coverage
you choose. Probably the most used of all coverages
is the trip cancellation portion. The date the penalty
begins with the cruise line or tour company, is the
date they will begin applying fees to you should you
have to cancel beginning with the amount you paid for
your original deposit, right up to the full penalty
-- or 100% of the total cost of the trip -- if you
have to cancel within a short period of time just before
the trip (all cancellation policies and penalty amounts
are listed in each cruise line's or tour operator's
The peace of mind of knowing your investment is protected,
as well as your health should you encounter a problem
while traveling, is well worth the cost of the insurance
for most people. There are also baggage allowances for
lost or late luggage, missed connections for flights,
and trip delays. There are those who travel frequently
and never take the insurance. It is certainly a personal
choice. If the insurance is taken within a week of the
first deposit, many policies will waive any condition
that would be termed "preexisting" if you meet certain
restrictions. Insurance can be purchased up until shortly
prior to the travel date -- however, any preexisting
condition that should cause you to have to cancel or
to be treated medically on your trip may not be covered.
We tell our guests that the trip cancellation / interruption
/ medical coverage provided is insuring against the unexpected
-- not the expected. If you don't need the insurance
at all during your trip -- you may well consider it an
unnecessary expense that you could have done without.
However, should you have to cancel your trip just before
the departure date, have unexpected illnesses back home
with family members, or experience a personal illness
or accident while away, then the insurance was worth
every dime you paid for it. We will be happy to provide
you with more information regarding the various coverages
and the cost per person for your particular trip.
|Q: What about all these
people getting sick with the Norwalk virus on cruise
A: Good question
-- and we have one for you -- what about all the kids
at school who are also sick (did you still send your
kids to school?) -- or the people you are shopping
with at the mall (are you not going shopping?) -- or
the people in your office (will your boss understand
if you tell him/her that you think you will stay home
for a few days until everyone else is well?) Unfortunately,
the media hype over all this has been far out of proportion
for the "problem". As reported by the CDC -- the
Norwalk virus has been around for many years and a
major number of people will have the symptoms from
time to time -- it is passed from person to person
-- not ship to person. Good hand-washing alone can
greatly diminish your possibilities of picking it up
regardless of where you may be. The ships are not "infected"
-- however, there will certainly be guests boarding
for every sailing who are -- and it is an impossibility
to screen passengers who are boarding with any type
of infectious virus, just as it cannot be screened
for in a school or any where else for that matter.
Staying home and isolating yourself from everyone else
may be the only protection you have from that or a
common cold -- which actually lasts longer and has
more potential for moving on into something more serious,
such as bronchitis, respiratory problems, and even
pneumonia. It is really unfortunate that so many have
become so super sensitive to the things we all took
so for granted --such as "stomach
viruses", flu, common colds, etc. -- prior to Sept.
|Q: What if I get bored
on a cruise ship?
A: Most people
who have never cruised are certainly a bit apprehensive
about not having enough to do. Well, most people who
have sailed will tell you that there were far too many
activities to choose from and far too little time to
do them all. In fact, on a typical week's cruise, most
people report that they didn't even get to see the
entire ship, or enjoy all it had to offer. The days
off the ship in ports of call can be very exhausting,
and just a nice nap, a pool-side drink or a chance
to sit on the deck and read a nice book can be just
the answer. Don't forget that in addition to all the
planned activities going on throughout the day and
evenings -- there is a casino, shops, television in
every stateroom, movies, a spa offering facials, massages,
saunas, hot tubs, etc. -- a fully equipped gym -- an
extensive library, cyber cafes, open and spacious decks,
lounges for reading or sunning, swimming pools, live
bands, and nonstop dining opportunities. Every night
provides live entertainment in the theater ranging
from individual performances by known entertainers
to productions of Broadway type performances with lavish
costumes and sets, and Las Vegas type revues. Many
ships have basketball courts, some have rock climbing
walls, in-line skating, ice skating, jogging tracks,
miniature golf, pubs, game arcades, and Ping-Pong tables.
(Sorry, skeet shooting is a thing of the past). Every
ship will have a passenger satisfaction survey taken
at the end of each sailing. Statistics have pretty
much proven that 97% of those sailing had a very positive
cruise experience, and that 85% of those will sail
again. Of that 97% --3% found it so incredible that
they scored everything as excellent. Chances are --
those people are just happy people enjoying life where
ever they happen to be. Only 3% on the average hated
the experience. They can usually find nothing that
met their expectations from the room, the service,
the food, the ports of call, the entertainment -- and
probably even their traveling companion, although that
question is never asked. Chances are -- most of those
same respondents would not be happy at home either.
So based on all the options offered on board the majority
of the cruise ships -- only the traveling passenger
will be able to determine whether or not boredom will
|Q: Can I park at the
A: All ports,
just as all airports, provide parking areas for traveling
guests. There are charges for this privilege, which
varies from port to port. Most charge a daily rate
and the ranges are usually between $10 and $15 per
day. Most of the parking areas provide both open parking
and parking garages. Most all are very secure -- however,
just as it is anywhere else -- it is park at your own
|Q: If I am flying,
how do I get from the airport to the ship?
A: If you have
purchased cruise line air, the cruise line will provide
your transfers to and from the airport and the ship.
If you have purchased your air separate from the cruise
line -- you are responsible for getting yourself to
the port and back to the airport after the cruise.
Some ports are not far from the airport, and taxis
are quite reasonable in price. In some ports (many
foreign port departures and also Anchorage, Alaska,
as well as Port Canaveral in Florida) -- the closest
airport is quite a distance from the port, and taxi
fares could be exorbitant. In those instances, we recommend
that you purchase the cruise line's transfers. We will
be happy to provide you pricing for those at the time
of your booking.
|Q: What if I miss the
A: We wish we
could tell you that never happens. If you have purchased
air through the cruise lines, you do have a level or
protection that you would not have with independent
air. We recommend that you plan to go a day early,
especially if you are booking your own air. With today's
delayed flights due to the new security procedures,
canceled flights for weather delays or mechanical problems,
they can create a stressful situation that can affect
the entire duration of your vacation. Building an extra
day into your travel prior to your trip can help you
get your trip off to a much better start, get a good
night's sleep, have a leisurely breakfast and head
off for the ship relaxed and ready for a great experience.
If your schedule will simply not permit you to go a
day early, then book a very early flight that will
permit you to have some built in time for those possible
delays. If you do miss the ship, there are port authorities
and cruise line personnel available to advise you the
best method to catch up with the ship in another port
-- if possible. We, as your travel professionals, are
also available to you seven days a week to assist you
in case of such an event. Unfortunately, boarding down
the line is no longer possible in some situations --
and sometimes only if you have purchased the cruise
line air. So even if the cruise line's air package
is more costly than you can provide independently --
a very strong consideration needs to be made regarding
the possibilities should you miss the ship. Let's say
for example the particular cruise you are scheduled
for is canceled for some reason -- and unfortunately,
that sometimes happens, although it is rare -- if you
have the cruise line's air -- you are totally covered
by the cruise line. If the departure date is changed,
or even the departure port, you are taken care of by
them. If you have booked independent air, quite possibly
there are no changes that can be made without stiff
penalties by the airline.
|Q: Are all the ships
or cruise lines fairly similar?
A: There are cruises
designed to suit virtually every interest and personal
preference. The choices include: boutique, luxury cruises
with globe-trotting itineraries; large, contemporary
ships with a fantastic array of recreational facilities;
classic vessels evoking the time-honored traditions
of cruising; special-interest or exploration cruises
specializing in unique destinations with an accent
on cultural enrichment. There are cruise lines that
feature soft adventure expeditions to such unusual
and rustic frontiers as Antarctica, the Amazon Rain
Forest or the African Serengeti. Or discover historical
legacies closer to home with enlightening itineraries
to New England, French Canada and the Colonial America
coast. For experienced travelers, destination-focused
cruises specialize in culturally-rich ports of call
with itineraries dedicated to illuminating such historic,
world-class treasures as the antiquities of classical
Greece, the Polynesian paradise of Hawaii or the fabled
splendor of Norwegian fjords. For many, the perfect
vacation includes the nonstop fun and sun of a tropical
resort-style cruise to the Caribbean, where you can
sample a variety of island cultures and cuisines while
working on a terrific sun tan. Plus many cruise lines
create special "themes" on board, with entertainment
ranging from jazz festivals and classical music concerts
to golf clinics and murder mysteries at sea.
The differences between the cruise lines can be as varied
as the differences between all the restaurants, hotels,
or shopping choices we have in our home towns. There
is something there for everyone -- from the budget traveler
to the seasoned traveler who wishes to experience (and
pay for!) all the possible luxuries a cruise can provide.
There is a rating system for cruise lines based on the
space ratio for passengers, the number of crew per passenger
-- which affects level of service -- the amount of money
spent per day per passenger -- which affects the quality
of the food served. While there is never a shortage of
food available on any cruise, there can certainly be
a difference in the quality of the food being served.
Just as everyone has their own preferences for their
dining experiences, or hotel or motels they choose when
traveling -- the same principles apply to cruising. We
will be happy to assist you in selecting just the appropriate
cruise line for your best opportunity to meet your own
|Q: Are there different
classes of service?
A: Today's cruise
ships are all "one-class". Everyone can use all
of the ship's facilities. The price of a cabin is based
primarily on its size and location. Regardless of the
category you book, you'll enjoy the same courteous
service, menus, activities, and entertainment as everyone
else on board. Some of the cruise lines do offer some
extra amenities to their guests who are sailing in
the upper category suites. While everyone on board
will have twice daily steward service in their cabins
for cleaning, fresh linens and towels, ice and water
-- some suites also offer a personal valet (butler),
concierge service, and other extra daily amenities,
including formal tea in your own suite every afternoon
and canapés prior to dinner while you are dressing.
|Q: Can I take my hair
dryer or shaver?
A: Most ships
have 110-volt outlets in the staterooms. And most ships
will even provide hair dryers in each cabin We will
be able to assist you as to the availability and usage
for your own personal items depending on the ship you
are sailing on.
|Q: What about mealtimes?
A: Again, there
are choices and more choices. During the day there
are many different dining options -- in the formal
dining room, on deck, in a pizzeria, buffet, or at
an espresso bar, to name just a few. There is room
service as well, already included in the cost of the
cruise, and is available 24 hours a day. There will
be a menu in each cabin with the many selections available.
At night, most ships offer several venues. Some ships'
dining rooms can accommodate all guests at one time,
called a "seating". Many ships offer you a choice
of several seating times, and others encourage you
to come to dinner whenever you like -- for "open seating"
-- also known as "personal choice dining" -- and
"freestyle dining". More traditional ships have
two seatings in their formal dining rooms, which differ
only by time -- typically 6:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. To
choose, just decide whether you prefer to dine early
or late -- then let us know your preference when you
book your cruise. Frequently, you can choose to enjoy
dinner someplace other than the formal dining room, such
as in an intimate restaurant that features, Italian,
Chinese, Japanese or Southwestern cuisine. More and more
cruise lines are opening up their informal lido areas
to evening dining where the dress and dishes always are
casual, and sometimes, you can even eat out under the
stars. And a large number of ships offer romantic in-cabin
dining -- especially nice for those who have personal
balconies. The choice is yours!
|Q: Is cruise ship dining
as good as I've been told?
you've heard about cruise ship dining is true. At each
meal, you'll find a varied selection of entrees (appetizers,
salads, soups, vegetables, and desserts too) and each
day the selection will be different. If you've ever
wanted to experiment with a cuisine or try a dish,
you can feel free to order more than one entree or
appetizer (or dessert!). But just because your cruise
ship offers plenty of delicious food, doesn't mean
you'll come home out of shape. You can choose low-cal,
spa, vegetarian or fitness menu selections that are
just as tempting as the regular menu. Best of all,
the one thing you'll never see on a cruise ship menu
is a price. Because your meals are included!
|Q: Can I get a special
A: Most ships
can accommodate salt-free, low-carb, low-cholesterol,
Kosher, or other diet preferences. However, this request
must be made in advance so be sure to advise us when
you book your cruise if you have dietary restrictions.
|Q: What about dining
companions -- can we sit just with our family and friends,
get a table for two, or will we have tablemates?
cruisers say they prefer sitting at a table with several
other diners; some lifelong friendships have been made
this way. But the cruise lines are geared to accommodate
each guest's wishes, and it is possible to request
a table for two or four. In the unlikely event that
you do wish to change tablemates, speak with the maitre
d', who will make every effort to seat you with more
compatible dining companions -- discretely and politely,
|Q. What if I smoke?
A: Virtually all
ships have smoking and nonsmoking sections in the public
rooms and on deck. In fact, most dining rooms and some
entire ships are totally smoke-free, reflecting passenger
requests. Most all cabins are "smoking optional" except
on the smoke free ships, where it is totally prohibited
there as well. No cigar smoking is permitted in any
public area, and is permitted in those areas designated
for cigar smoking.
|Q: Can we celebrate
a special occasion?
Most cruise lines will even treat you to a complimentary
cake and a chorus of "Happy Whatever" to honor
the occasion. Your birthday or anniversary can be more
festive with champagne, flowers or canapés You
can even arrange a special private party. Just let
us know in advance so we can set it up for you.
|Q: How can our friends
or family reach us while on the ship?
A: Quite easily.
Most ships now have either internet capabilities direct
from your stateroom (you can use either your own notebook
or rent one from them) -- or an Internet cafe area
with computers. Each ship's charges for usage vary.
There are also telephones connected to satellite in
every stateroom, where you can either call out or receive
calls -- however, these can be rather pricey. Costs
per minute can range from $9.95 to $15 -- but will
be posted near the phone. The charges are then posted
to your onboard account. You can also send or receive
faxes through the Guest Relations desk -- and they
will provide you with the information and form you
will need for those. And as a method of keeping up
with world news while on board the ship -- there are
televisions in every stateroom with news briefs running
in print format 24/7 -- as well as CNN on most ships.
There will also be a daily printed newspaper available
on most ships -- received via satellite feed by the
ship and printed on board.
|Q: What about tipping?
A: Tipping is
a matter of individual preference. A general rule of
thumb is to plan on about $3.50 per day per person
for both your room steward and your dining room waiter,
and about $2.00 for the assistant waiter (or busboy).
Other shipboard personnel can be tipped for special
services at your discretion. Some cruise lines state,
"Tipping not required"
-- meaning it is at your discretion. However, we have
personally found that the crew aboard those ships also
are dependent on tips for their primary income. Based
on our level of service -- we tip them as well. Some
cruise lines maintain a total no tipping policy -- those
will be a few of the luxury cruise lines where both the
level or service you receive and the privilege of receiving
it have been well taken care of for you in advance and
included in your cruise fare. Some cruise lines have
also now gone to either offering "prepaid" tips
-- or tips automatically charged to your shipboard account
each day. We do not recommend paying tips in advance,
personally, as we feel that we still have the right to
choose to whom and how much we will tip based on the
level of service we receive on the ship. Even for those
cruise lines that automatically charge a set amount per
day per person for your tips -- you do have the right
to go to the Guest Relations desk and adjust those amounts.
Our concern here is that we want to be certain that those
individuals who have truly gone the extra mile for us
are the ones receiving our tip money. It is a shame,
however, that some of the cruise lines have felt the
need to do the automatic charging due to the fact that
so many guests were failing to compensate the crew who
have worked so hard to see that your cruise experience
was a good one. One of the reasons we refuse to ever
participate in prepaid tips -- is that we feel that is
a recipe for poor service. Again, tipping is very personal
-- but should certainly be practiced. When you figure
your basic tips computed with the figures given above
-- you will have to agree that you would be unable to
go out to eat in your own home town at a fine dining
establishment, three meals per day -- and pay such a
small amount for tips. It is a delight to sail on the
luxury lines where the crew are well paid, and the service
is demanded of them -- and the tips are included in the
cruise fare -- but that service, again, has already been
well compensated for in the cruise price.
|Q: Are there medical
services on board?
A: While cruise
ships are not comprehensive medical facilities, cruise
lines understand that some people may have health needs
during a cruise. Thus they are committed to providing
first response and emergency care to guests until they
can be transferred to a shoreside medical facility.
Most cruise lines have 24-hour medical services and
staff operating under guidelines developed in conjunction
with the American College of Emergency Physicians.
Cruise lines, and travel agents, encourage vacationers
to obtain traveler's medical insurance, travel with
adequate supplies of medical prescriptions and devices,
and to disclose preexisting medical conditions before
|Q: Are there laundry
services aboard a ship?
A: Almost all
cruise ships have laundry facilities and dry-cleaning
services aboard, for a fee of course. However, many
ships also have self-service launderettes complete
with irons and ironing boards as well. We will be happy
to supply you with the information regarding the particular
ship you have selected to sail on.
