Yes, you can have things pressed only. If I remember correctly, they have specials that helps to watch out for.

I don't remember the exact price.

What ship?

As far as the iron. You have the right answer. They are not welcome, but I have found that wrinkles are a part of cruising, and most if not all don't even notice.
We are going on the Triumph. Leaving the 17th.

I am glad to hear that there is laundry onboard. We are actually leaving home 5 days before the cruise and spending a couple of days at Disney. I was trying to decide if I need to pack 16 to 18 outfits per person or if I would be able to do laundry half way through.

Thank you for your help!

Do not pack to much!!!! We have all done it, and we have all regretted it.

Want me to find out where the laundry room is from your room?

That would be great! I believe (I don't have my paperwork with me) that we will be in room 7428.

For one thing, good choice for your room. Excellent location.

From your room, turn right and go down the long hallway. You will pass the first set of elevators, but keep going. About half way down from those elevators you will see a sign above that says laundry room.

It is across from 7349.

If you see the second set of elevators, you have gone to far.

Now, They also sale Laundry detergent and softener, and bleach. It gets kind of expensive so this is what I do. I try to find the tabs that have all of it in one, but if I can't, I baggie everything. My soap in one and dryer sheets in the other. If I really need bleach, I buy it in the dispenser.

Yes, I would avoid a ship where I knew someone was intentionally bringing an iron on board.

I was referring to the issue ofher impression of my attitude, NOT that I planned on bringing an iron !!!!! I NEVER stated I was "intentionally" going to bring an iron on board !!!! Just to recap...I initially asked if it would be confiscated. If the answer was "yes" I would not bring it. If the response was what it was about being a hazard I said o.k. and already purchased a steamer !!

Don't get your undies in a twist !! I am not a person who blantantly disobeys rules, especially safety rules !!!!

I don't worry about an iron - I invest in Downy Wrinkle Releaser - it's awesome!

I can solve the problem for all concerned about wrinkles and irons--- sail on nude cruises only. That way the only wrinkles we have to worry about are the ones we can't do anything about--- and surely no one would bring iron then---maybe a hibachi grille -- but no iron !!
Smooth sailing to all !

Frightful idea, this nude cruise idea. If the wrinkles don't get to you, the sunburn probably will.

Wouldn't a steamer burn and cause a fire if left on and plugged in just as a travel iron would? Whats the difference?

The heating coil on an iron burns at a much higher temperature than a steamer does. A steamer does not pull nearly the amount of power from an outlet or heat up nearly as much as an iron. A steamer only needs to heat up to the point of converting water to steam, while an iron would heat up to 3 or 4 times hotter than that.

blueliner..... I read on another board that someone is bringing a crockpot on their cruise. How dangerous would that be ? (gotta go back and find out now why anyone would want to bring one !)

I gotta think that would be confiscated as well. Cooking food in your cabin in any way would be strictly forbidden I have to think. Although, I can't think of anyone that would want to cook on a cruise when you have a staff of cooks and chefs onboard to do that very thing for you!

I don't know if a crockpot per say would be forbidden in any cruise written literature or policies, probably because no one at a cruise line would believe someone would come onboard with their own cooking utensils! However, if caught I have a very high probability of belief that it would be confiscated.

The heat on an iron is generated to the open flat surface. Therefore, if it remains plugged in, that surface remains HOT. If it was left on, and then tipped by the movement of the ship, is where the trouble would begin.

A steamer has an enclosed heating coil. It heats the water in the device, not any external surfaces.

You guys are scaring me. Maybe I should start worrying about wrinkles.

I now receive a magazine that sales clothes that are guaranteed not to wrinkle. Of course they cost a fortune, and they look like crap, but you won't wrinkle.

Default ???TRAVEL IRON???

Tips from an experienced traveler: Buy shirts/blouses that are labeled "Wrinkle Resistant", and put them in a garment bag, NOT a suitcase. For shirts/blouses that do get wrinkled: hang garment on the back of the bathroom door when you take a shower. After your shower, while the shirt/blouse is still damp from the steam, stretch out the wrinkles and go over them with a blow dryer. Most (if not all) wrinkles will disappear. For pants, lay them out length-wise seam-to-seam between the mattress and box springs before you go to bed. Your pants will be pressed when you get up in the morning. Now, how do you get someone who can't sing out of the karaoke bar? (Maybe I should start a new string for that).

Thank you I think I will stick to folding my clothes flat and putting white tissue paper between them to keep the clothes almost winkle free.

I have heard people come on here and say they roll their clothes. I have never tried it, but they say it works.
