Celebration - October cruise
 
First cruise will be from Jacksonville, FL to Bahamas. I am concerned about wrinkles as I am not a wrinkle free packer. Is there usually a line at the iron/board in the laundry area? How much hanging space is in the cabin?

You are going on your first cruise and you are worried about wrinkles??
You will be on vacation - enjoy it!
Take the "nice stuff" out of your suitcase as soon as you get in your cabin, and hang it up in the closet (there is plenty of space). The rest of your wardrobe should consist of a swimsuit, cover-up and flip flops, to enjoy your days lounging by the pool!
I wouldn't know about line-ups for irons, I've never used or needed one on a cruise. Just a little tip: neatly ROLL up your outfits when packing, usually saves on most of the wrinkling.
Bon voyage!

Downy Wrinkle Releaser is awesome!!! All you have to do is mist your article of clothing, and after misting pull down you piece of clothing to stretch out the wrinkles than hang-up to dry. You can buy this in a travel-size bottle. Not only does it smell great it works wonderfuly! Enjoy your cruise!

Go to Walmart and get yourself a travel size bottle of Downy Wrinke Releaser, this stuff works. Also, take the cloths out and hang them and the night youre going to wear them, hang them inside the bathroom so when you shower the steam will do most of the job.

You can litely spray with Downy Wrinke Releaser and then use the Blow Dryer in the cabin to quickly dry it and watch the wrinkles disappear.

Go here and see how it works:

Thanks so much for the suggestions. I wouldn't have thought about the Downey Wrinkle Releaser. I will pick some up. I do roll my clothes but still seem to have more wrinkles than I am comfortable with.

I hope to enjoy the cruise. It has taken my husband four years to get me to try one. I get motion sick so easy. I tried a one day casino cruise out of Galveston about 5 years ago and had to take medicine and slept the day away. He and my daughter had a ball and woke me in time to get off. I do plan to try the wrist bands and will take the patches but they do make me sleep.

I don't expect to spend much time lounging by the pool as I can't be in the sun too long. But I hope to enjoy some people watching!

Excellent advice - go to Walmart and get Downy Wrinkle Release. It works wonders and even better the airlines will let you take it onboard as long as it is in the quart size bag with your other liquids!
