No. None of the Celebrity ships (true for almost all other lines as well) have washing / ironing facilities available.

Not being one, I can only speak for the ones with whom I travel (wife and daughter). The sink works well.

The ship also provides same day and next day laundry service for whatever you've got. Laundry prices aren't cheap -- a bit higher than local shops in the U.S. Note, however, that the dry cleaning prices are outstanding.

For long cruises I bring a small bottle of lingerie detergent and also a wrinkle remover spray that works well in humid climates(I think made by Downey). I believe most Celebrity ships have a clothesline in the shower. Otherwise I send out anything that I might want to wear again. Mainly I just bring lots of undies, and too many clothes!!!

My husband would not be very happy if I tried to bring six suitcases!! As it is, on our last cruise, we had to pay an extra $25.00 for an overweight suitcase. These newer suitcases hold way, way too much!

Me too, always bring too much.

This time I am in deep doo doo. We will be gone 2 weeks. Spending three days in Rome pre-cruise and then 10 in the Med. Don't know what to pack. Would like to travel light, ha-ha - how do I do that on a cruise?

Sinks come in handy for washing out delicates. However, they also don't take up too much room. I pack ALL my clothes in very large zip lock bags that I get at BJ's. All the clothes get rolled and you can pack a lot into your luggage, taking up little space. When you unroll them out of the zip lock bag you will be amazed because they won't be wrinkled.

I learned this tip from the boards and thank the poster for their great words of wisdom! However, now I pack even more because I have so much space in the luggage........HELP!
