Default irons

I'll be traveling on Paradise May 19th and I was wondering if anyone knew if there was irons or iron boards in the rooms? Just to know if the dress clothes get wrinkled. Thanks....

There are no irons in the rooms and you are discouraged from bringing one as they are a very bad fire hazard. The Paradise DOES have ironing boards and iron in thier laundry rooms free of charge but they are mounted to the wall there. Either use them or bring you a small travel steamer, they work very well.

Thanks Jim, well if we need to iron we can just use the one in the Laundry room, no need to bring more stuff then we already have to. By any chance do you know how many nights we have to dress formal, semi-formal, and casual on a 7 day cruise?

The map of the ship indicates there are laundry rooms on every deck. That is NOT true. I think they only have laundry rooms on two decks. It appears that they have converted the original laundry rooms into regular rooms on some of the decks. When we used them for ironing we had to wait a few minutes for someone to get done. I would recommend doing your ironing well before the formal nights. As I recall the first formal night is the second night after sailing and the second formal night is the second to last night. I hope that helps. Jeff

Jennifer,
On a seven day cruise you will have two formal nights and basically the rest are casual as they have pretty well eliminated the semi-formal.

Jennifer, try packing all of your formal/evening outfits in plastic dry cleaner bags. Include a few light hangers too. Remove them from your luggage as soon as possible and your wrinkles should be limited. Pack very tightly so clothes do not move around. This is what causes wrinkles. Also, fold outfits with tissue paper like you were gift wrapping them. This too helps. E-bags sells great Pack-It envelopes that I can't live without. Great buy if you travel enough.
Bon Voyage
