Review summary

No laundry facilities - are you kidding me? The only laundry option is sending to the ship cleaner with socks starting at $3/pair. We travel a lot and packed for 5 days plus two sets of nice evening clothes figuring we'd do laundry twice since this is a 12 day cruise and would pay $3 to $4 per load (wash and dry). We were shocked and appalled to learn Celebrity does not have laundry facilities on its ships. We've cruised with other lines other lines and they all have laundry facilities so it never dawned on us to ask the question. The cost to have our clothes washed was absolutely ridiculous as each load came to almost $100.

Ship tip

Travel heavy and inconveniently and pay the airlines bag fees or travel like most people and pay Celebrity an obnoxiously insane amount to have clean laundry.
