Not sure about laundry, but I don’t think there are facilities on board.

This may be a dumb question. This will be my first cruise. 14 days is a lot to pack for. Are there laundry facilities on board? If so, is it do your own or do you pay to have it done? Does anyone have any suggestions about what to pack? Thanks in advance! So excited.

the price of the bottled alcohol in the liquor/cigar store is hard to beat for the mainstream drinks. We bring back vodka ( Canadian so prices way more than the states). We buy it early as we have seen the vodkas sell out. They will deliver the last day before we are done.
If you update from classic Alcohol to premium on the ship it is 10 US plus 18% so 11.80 per day per person. Do this with the bar you will frequent most.
The first day the specialty dining lounges have deals.
Excursions dont have to be done through the ship. howevere if you do an afternoon one and it may be close for time then do it through the ship. They wont leave without you this way. Off ship.. Buh Bye.
Ask your room steward to empty your fridge so you have room for your stuff. If you tell the bartender you are going to drink it later on he wont take the cap off. Good for water too.
Bring a small plug in that expands and has usb ports. like a belkin single plug.
If you can find them and plan to go to the beach get your hands on a few blow up doodles. We had a lady get them for us in the states .
Small underwater cameras are great as they take a beating.. can get wet, sand and still take good pics.
If you are select dining. schedule your dinner times in before you go. You can do this online. You can always change when on the ship.
Don't try and do everything.
Us the stairs as much as possible.
Bring a first aid kit including antibiotic ointments various size bandages. pain meds etc.

I have checked in by 11:00am each cruise on Eclipse and walked on right after on all cruises but one. The one time we had to wait as Customs had not cleaned ship yet.

- to your room attendants and waiters. They work really hard and the better you treat them the better they look after you!

Buy a drink package. On ship days the pool fills up quickly. People come to the pool and "save" their chairs by putting a towel down.....then they leave and go have breakfast or go back to bed This is against the rules, so if you can't find a seat, talk to a pool attendant and they will remove towels from "saved seats". Strike up conversations every day with strangers.....you will meet fascinating people. Pack your suitcase and then take out 1/3 of the stuff. You won't need it. Bring lots of sunscreen, the sun is much stronger on the ocean and on the islands. Join in fun activities....you will likely never see these people again! Don't buy anything onboard until you have shopped on the islands (like jewelry ,watches, clothes).....And wait until the end of cruise because stuff goes on sale then. I could go on and on and on! Those are just a couple tips.
