Default CARVIVAL INSPIRATION

We are taking a 5 day cruise on the inspiration on 4/20.

Does anyone know if there are laundry rooms and ironing boards>

Also we are going with our 3 teenage grandsons, will there be a lot for them to do on sea days?

Yes there will be laundry rooms with ironing boards.

What ages are your teenagers.

They have Circle C for 12-14 and Club 02 for 15-17. There is also the pool, Water Park, Arcade, or just hanging around. So there will be plenty for them to do.

It's worth the few dollars to send the ironing out. Why bother with washing and ironing on a cruise! Give your steward whatever ironing you have as soon as you get on board. This is only a five day cruise. Inspiration is too much fun to waste time doing housework! Not only that - three teenage grandsons - the girls will love them and you probably won't see them except for dinner time....

I SAILED ON THE INSPIRATION LAST AUGUST FOR THE 5DAY CRUISE TO COZUMEL. IT WAS GREAT! THERE WAS SO MUCH TO DO FOR EVERY AGE GROUP THAT YOU COULDNT ALWAYS DO EVERYTHING! I RECOMEND GOING TO THE SHOWS AT NIGHT. THEY WERE GREAT, AND IF THEY HAVE A LATE NIGHT COMEDIAN.....THATS A FUN TIME TOO!
YES THEY HAD A LAUNDRY AND IRON ROOM, SO DONT FRET ABOUT THAT. JUST SIT BACK...HAVE A DRINK....AND ENJOY!
BON VOYAGE!!

I totally agree...forget laundry and ironing until you get back home. You are on a fairly short cruise, so take full advantage...it's a vacation!
And our 2 teenage nephews had a ball on the Inspiration last year. Even though they were just over the age limit for organized activities, they found plenty to do. Fun to hear them go on and on during dinner!

If you send the ironing out, how much does it cost? Is it based per item? I know that our things are going to be wrinkled by the time we arrive on the cruise so, should I even bother ironing ahead of time?

Shake them out when you unpack and take some plastic hangers. Hang the ones you care about up in the shower and steam them that way. Believe me, there is no need to be wrinkle free, since everyone is in the same boat (literally!). The humidity in the outside air will also take wrinkles out of most things, so don't worry. If you feel you absolutely must iron everything, or even just a couple of dressy things and don't want to pay to have it done, use the iron in the laundry room. But, you will probably be the only one in there!
