I recently read that the new Viking Star will have self help washing machines & dryers.  If washing machines and dryers were available on more ships would you use them on cruises over 7 days?  


On a recent long cruise I did use the machines & dryers about 6 times.  It took little time and the powder was included in the cost of the washing.  Dryers were complimentary so if you had articles that got wet, you could dry them free of charge.  The ship even had an iron.   

Normally on a vacation I don't like to be stuck spending time doing laundry.  The machines are a big help to families, though.  


What are your thoughts.
