Get real. I called the cruiseline twice and the told me the same thing. It seems you are not of this century so I will tell you irons are not made of iron anymore. Most irons are fitted with an automatic shut off and are safer than you smoking in your cabin after a few stiff drinks. Travel irons weight about five pounds and are smaller than my shoes. They are ment to be taken anywhere. So my fellow passanger can rest well knowing that I will not raise the mercury on the Mercury this week.
