Default Iron and Board

Good morning. Going on the Inspiration 1/13/2002 and have a couple of questions maybe someone can help with. Are there Irons and ironing boards in the rooms or available somewhere else for our use? Do the rooms have blow dryers in them? On the "formal" nights, is a dark suit required or will a grey one be OK.
Thanks for your help!

Grey suit will be perfectly acceptable.

I believe that the Inspiration does have self-service laundries on board and that they have irons

Burtie ...

I agree with CA that the grey suit will be Just Fine. However, you can rent a tux which will be delivered straight to your cabin if you're feeling snappy.

As to the hair dryers, I have never met a cruise ship hair dryer I liked and I have short, fine hair. 1600-watt international (US and Euro power) travel hairdryers are available for less than $20. The handle folds up and it fits in a (large) shoe. Take along a short extension cord or a cube tap. You usually can't use hairdryers in the bathroom, only in the cabin. (I have never understood that part.)

One of the annoyances of the ships' hairdryers is that they ARE in the bathroom and there can be an unpleasant steam factor from the shower.

If you pack your clothes on hangers and cover them with plastic dry cleaners' bags, wrinkles are almost impossible. I've taken linen as far away as Singapore (and it doesn't get much further) with nary a wrinkle.

Ships' laundries also offer pressing services at a nominal price. Last cruise, I took several clean but unpressed items and just sent them out.

Who wants to spend their cruise ironing ???

Linen?!!! Pamda, you have actually packed LINEN? I have long had respect for the packing prowess of cruisemate members, but now I am in awe!
