Default Wrinkled dress

The dress I have for formal night is silk. I know it will be wrinkled when I unpack it. Does the laundry service on the ship (Mariner) steam or press a dress? Any suggestions on how to get wrinkles out?

Hi CJ,
Yes, Mariner will have a laundry service and can and will press your dress if needed. You may want to pack it in a plastic cleaner bag, may not wrinkle at all. I've had very good luck packing everything in a garment bag that way. There is also some sprays you can purchase that take wrinkles out and a travel steamer may be another good idea.

i totally agree with Donna. Hang your dress up, put the plastic drycleaners bag over it and pack it in your garment bag.
I do not know if you can use the wrinkle reducer sprays on silk
Another option is to hang it up in the shower in the bathroom, turn on the hot water, shut the door and steam the wrinkles out.
