Is it OK to pack laundry detergent in our checked luggage? Are there any special considerations as to kinds of laundry soaps? We hope to avoid excess baggage charges by laundering some clothes during our 15 day voyage.

Hello,

Thank you for your question. The laundry detergent soap for the guest laundry facility is complimentary for 2012.

If you would still like to bring your own detergent, I suggest confirming with your airline provider regarding any specific information about your luggage restriction There is no restrictions regarding laundry detergent on the ship. From personal experience with the airline carrier, a travel-sized laundry detergent has been fine to bring if you are packing it in your "checked" luggage as opposed to bringing in on in your "carry-on" luggage. There are also no restrictions on the type of soap.

Thank you,

I've read that the River Baroness does not have laundry facilities. Is there a laundry service available, if so what cost?
Thank you
Valerie

Hi there -

Although there are no laundry facilities on the Baroness, wouldn't past passengers have access to complementary laundry service?

Not sure if the original poster is a past passenger or not - but think that this is certainly one of the "perks" of travelling with Uniworld.
