Unless your clothes are really wrinkled, alot of people buy the wrinkle remover spray to carry along. the spray works great - use it at home and on trips.

We carry a small travel steamer that works wonders!

There are irons and ironing boards for guest usage on most ships. It's best to wait until the second day to try to use them and then do all your clothes at once.

You can use those travel steamers.

You can hang the clothes in the bathroom and turn the shower on full hot and let them steam on the hanger. The wrinkles will fall out fairly soon.

There are services on board for a fee too.

Regards,
Thomas

Hi Donna,
A little packing trip so you will not have to iron....just pak all your dresses, suits in the plastic cleaner bags, works very well, give that a try.

I'd try to refrain from using the shower technique for removing wrinkles (unless you're in the bathroom showering at the time). Otherwise, it's a tremendous waste of the ship's water supply. Sure, the ship makes its own water but producing water costs $$ and guess who pays for this in the long run? Correct, you do!

Celebrity does not have self serve laundries on board, so I would suggest taking a wrinkle release product, pack your dress clothes in dry cleaner bags, or use a portable travel steamer.

HAL offers an ironing service which was actually a fantastic deal. For $15 for the entire week, you could give them anything to iron and it would be returned within 24 hours. It was SO worth it!! If your cruiseline offers a similar service, you should jump on it.
Cheers,
