Default Irons?

This may be a stupid question but do most of the ships have irons you can use or do I need to pack my own? We are going on RCCL?
Thanks,
Jamie

Hi JamieLynn,

No, it's not a stupid question. Irons in your cabin are a BIG no-no . They are a fire hazard and not allowed.

You can bring a clothes steamer. I also like the Wrinkle Release spray. Also, if you pack everything in dry cleaning plastic bags, it will keep the wrinkles down.

Or you can do what I do. I take mostly knits, so I don't have to iron .

I haven't sailed RCL, so don't know if they have laundry rooms on board, but you can send things out to be pressed.

Have a great cruise,

Default Wrinkle Release Spray...

Nevermind... Saw it in another post. THanks though!

I always wondered if that stuff worked. Which kind is the best or does it matter? I had heard that before about the Cleaning bags, I think I will give that a try.
THANKS!
Jamie

Just back from PCL CB and they had an iron on a timer in the laundermat.

Check with the cruise line regarding your particular ship.
