  1. Hey everyone, Before we set sail (HAL Noordam from Vancouver, BC to Seward, AK July 21, 2019 sailing), there were a lot of forum questions about laundry options and pricing. The Noordam DOES NOT have self-serve laundry, so this pricing may only apply to the ships that don't. Attached are 2 pictures of the laundry options. One is a letter explaining packages and the other is a per item price list as well as laundry package form. Our Experience: We did the $49 package and it was well worth it. The service was very fast, normally within 24 hours. You put your laundry in the blue bag, fill out the Laundry Form (image attached) and we just checked the unlimited laundry package. After the first time we used/signed up for the service, we checked the package on the form and noted that it was already purchased. We would mark how many of each thing we were sending on the form and include it with each bag. The forms are triplicate and they return your laundry with the pink copy of the form and you can check to make sure it's all there. Your steward collects and returns your laundry to your room. For us, this happened during housekeeping in the day and when they provided turn down service in the evening. Anything that can be hung (slacks, jeans, t-shirts, tank tops, leggings) is hung, and everything else is folded and delivered in a basket, all together in tissue-like a gift box with no lid. The laundry service attaches a sticker with your room number and other identifiers to the hem of each item. These stickers are very sticky, but the peel off when you find them with no issue and they don't poke you if you miss one. Everything came back in great shape. We used the service every morning and evening and nothing was lost or damaged. We didn't send anything that we wouldn't normally toss in the washer or dryer though as that is the service that you are buying with unlimited laundry or the $20 blue bag.
