I don't worry about it because everyone else is in the same boat. (Sorry about the pun)
The humidity on board seems to help, but we tried a steamer once, and it was not worth the hassle. By the end of the cruise, your clothes will be so tight due to the sudden weight gain that they will look perfect.

Put each garment into its own plastic bag from the dry cleaner's. Never a wrinkle.

for future travels, you may want to look into TravelSmith.com. They have many types of outfits, interchangeable, for both men and women. They are wrinkle resistant. My dress and slacks hang perfectly everytime.

Most ships have laundrettes where you can iron things yourself, or they'll press 'em for you, if you're really bugged by the wrinkles, as I am.

I've never really had a wrinkle problem. Lot's of my clothes are knits. And I pack very carefully. Everything is folded or rolled. I pack the night before I leave and try to unpack as soon as possible so the stuff doesn't stay in the suitcase any longer than needed.

If you layer your suitcase with Tissue Paper it will prevent wrinkles.

I guess either I have never read this info anywhere or never questioned about it but I was not aware we couldn't bring an iron. I have bought a travel iron the last 3 cruises and ironed what need to be as soon as I got my luggage. Never left the room until it cooled and then put into the drawer until time to pack up. Should I not do this anymore? Darn if I do, I am going to feel guilty. I should have skipped over this one.
