There are no limets, what will go through the Xray machine, same size as the airports...
You may want to consider how much you want to carry on as there are LONG SLOW LINES at the check in process & you may have a bad attitute as I did at the end of the line of the check in...... Our next cruise will be 2-SMALL shoulder bags for the camera, bottled water, snacks & a magizine to read while waiting....

Airline wise, i have no idea, but cruise line wise if it fits through the x-ray machine you're good to go. I have taken Garment Bags before and had no problems.

Cruise line scanners are smaller than airport scanners. The good thing about a garment bag is that it can be "adjusted" to fit through the scanner. The bad thing is possible wrinkles.

We took a hand steamer for the wrinkles, worked great... The Conquest had a laundry on each deck with a FREE iron & board.... Never seen a crowd in the laundry, most always empty as we walked by....

Now , spoiled me will gladly pay the ship's fee to have any of my clothes (that really need it ) pressed and returned to my cabin. I just can't picture me ironing anything in the ship's laundry room, as I can do that at home anytime I want. Instead, I CAN picture me lounging comfortably on the Lido deck and having drinks served to me, and having wrinkles being the furthest thing from my mind. Even face wrinkles. That's why I cruise!

OK, but a new "wrinkle".... Does Carnival offer pick up, wash, iron, & return to room service (like some hotels)?????
Anybody know for sure?

Absolutely! There's a "laundry/dry cleaning " form in your cabin closet where you just fill out what you need done, and leave the clothes to be serviced. You can check whether you want things like press only, dry clean and press, launder only, launder and press, etc. It also lists prices. Your clothes will be returned to your cabin and hung in your closet.
