That thread re luggage tags got me thinking, and I went and looked, and sure enough, there were some clothes we let the ships laundry do a few weeks ago and they still had those little stick-on tags NCL uses when you give em a bagful. Kind of funny. Wonder how they manage to sort things..must be an incredible system that's gets YOUR stuff back to YOU. Ive seen those washers. a bit on the large side to say the least. And if I hadnt found them, where would they ship our clean laundry to? Just so happens were sailing on the same ship AND the same cabin in about 65 days (btw..wheres the countdown clock?) but if we hadn't, our laundry could be shipped to??? shanghai?? bora bora? or..."the port of lost laundry"??

Good questions! You can ask when you sail again in about 65 days. Looking forward to the answer.

Interesting. Maybe they use a pin system but I guess you will have to ask.

In the navy we had a 55 gallon drum with holes punched it. Tied it on the stern with clothes in it and the propellers were like an agitator. Rinse with fresh water and presto clean laundry. We had to go on fresh water hours. You know the ole the Navy, save water, shower with a friend.

Yeh we heard about that. especially the friend part. howsumever, clean clothes was the least of my problems. I got to be intimately friendly with the bugs. you knew you were in-country too long when you finally learned to ignore em. "what bugs??" see how far we have all come? heheheh
