I have borrowed a tiny travel iron with two settings (120 and 240). Will this be OK to use on board the ship? I know they say the ship has standard 110 volt outlets but my electrician brother says 110 and 120 are pretty much the same and I should have no problem.
I am sailing the Jubilee from Galveston on April14. Any one sail that ship and use one? Any other electrical experts know the scoop on this appliance. Don't want to blow a breaker on the ship.
Irons are a no-no onboard ship due to their being a fire hazard. Leave the travel iron at home. There is an iron for your use in the self-serve laundry room and you can also bring a small travel cloths steamer. When you pack place one of those plastic dry cleaner bags over your outfits, they help keep wrinkles from forming for some reason.
While they won't put you in the brig for having one, the experianced sailor will cringe at the mention of an iron. They are quite a fire hazard and at sea the #1 danger is always fire. It isn't like you can leave and go stand on the corner until the Fire Department arrives and take care of it.
