I’m not sure if there are facilities to do your own laundry but we got ours done by the maids. It came back absolutely beautiful. Folded and ironed. What a treat 😊

When you present for breakfast you need to speak to a staff member in the dining hall and order your lunch as it is extra so not difficult to organize and choice of meals is good and are very reasonable cost wise.
