We always use a garment bag and have never had a problem. I keep everything in the plastic cleaner bags, so no wrinkles. Its the last thing I pack and the first I unpack, so give it a try, I'm sure you too will have no problems.
This time, I'm taking my suit in the garment bag, but having it pressed when I get onboard. The cost is basically the same as at home and I don't risk paying twice because it got crumpled up on the way there.
My husband has lost some weight and has decided that he'd rather take his light colored sports coat to wear for formal night instead of his dark suit. He has a variety of colored shirts and ties he can wear with it. His pants will be a light weight dark beige/light brown. Is this TOO casual for formal night? I will be wearing a long dress with spaghetti straps and a sparkly wrap. I tend to think I'll be overdressed or "within mode" while he will not fit the attire rule.
I have not really pushed him because we have been concentrating on hurricanes lately down here in Florida and I just want to get on the ship next weekend. Should I urge him to take the black jacket,at least? Lynne
Last cruise I took two suits with me. I carried them in a garment bag in the dry-cleaners plastic and after surviving a flight from LA to Puerto Rico and then manhandled on the pier they came out looking great. Can't say the same for my suitcase. American Airlines managed to break off both handles and one wheel making it nearly impossible to move.
