Laundry/Dry Cleaning Turnaround

Recommended Posts

We're in a Penthouse Junior Suite next month - can you give me an idea on turnaround for laundry/dry cleaning if we turn it in by, say, 9am in the morning?  Same day?  Next day by ...?

 

Thanks!

Never used dry cleaning service .. but if you leave your laundry bag and laundry form on the bed by mid morning it will be collected - and returned the next afternoon (all nicely folded and wrapped, inside a cute box).

This means no laundry service on your last full day on-board as you disembark early the next day.

We  have completed 4 Viking Ocean cruises in Penthouse Junior Suites and love the laundry service perk.

Enjoy.

We were in a PS in July.  We had our laundry bag and the form on our bed as helenandfrank mentioned, by around 9:00.  Our laundry and dry cleaning were hanging in our closet by the next afternoon.

Apologies .. yes of course millybess is correct.

Your underwear / socks etc will be in the box but your shirts / trousers etc will be on hangers in the wardrobe.

Thanks for that info helenandfrank.  We used the laundry machines for our undies and socks.

One final thought SabreSailor .. comments above relate to the 'included' laundry service.

On the last full day on-board (ie when no included service available) I believe you can pay extra for same day return of laundry .. which we have never done.

A couple of times we have used the laundry machines to do a quick wash / dry in the evening prior to disembarking.

I use the laundry service about every other day- not included in our PV room, but I can’t stand to have dirty laundry around. Plus, the cost is minimal compared to the cost of time to use the machines (other things I’d rather do and laundry service comes back folded or on hangers). I can also just send things out to be pressed- the irons in the laundry room are sometimes finicky about heat (too hot or not enough) and previous users have sometimes scorched something on the bottom of the iron. 

As said by the others, we leave the laundry bag/bags 🙀 on the bed in the morning and the cabin steward picks it up as s/he cleans. I’ve been seen walking briskly down the hall (no running in the halls!) to hand another bag of laundry to our cabin steward. Doesn’t take long for them to figure out to leave 2 bags in the room.

I also use the laundry service about every other day. i put it on the bed before leaving to go to dinner. It is pretty much always back the next afternoon.

I may be wrong--but I thought that at any point during the cruise you could pay 2X pricing for next day delivery.

We just sent our laundry in daily and got it back next day as we were in Penthouse Junior Suite.

Next cruise is DV6 and we figure for $15-20/day we will pay for laundry/dry cleaning daily. Not worth spending time doing our own laundry on vacation when you look at the per hour cost.
