Good point Mark! I took an iron on my first couple of cruises back in the 90's but then decided I could find better things to do on a cruise. The solution is simple-don't take stuff that needs ironing
I used to pack WAY ahead of time out of pure excitement, now pack only the "non-hangables" ahead of time but leave hanging clothes until the night before. Hang them up as soon as your luggage is delivered to the cabin and for the most part any creases will be gone by the time you need to wear them. If you REALLY have an item that looks like you slept in it, then hang it in the bathroom while you shower-works wonders
