Default About Irons

So I hear that irons are not in the staterooms due to fire hazard, but is there anyone stopping you from bringing your own iron? Thanks.

If it matters, I'm talking about Grandeur.

Dry cleaning and pressing service is available on the ship.

We just got back from our cruise on the Explorer and I brought my own travel iron and had no problems at all.

Hve been on four cruises, all different lines and have ALWAYS brought my own iron. Can't leave home without It.

Gee... sorry to say.. but something strikes me as odd. Fire at sea is perhaps the #1 danger to a cruise ship. It's understood that irons in the cabin are a fire hazzard, yet people still insist on taking them along???

Glad to see so many people taking a chance with everyone's lives in order to take their creases out. Sound harsh? Sorry.. but I can't understand taking the chance to save $2 to get an article of clothing ironed by the ship's laundry.

With so much to pack for a cruise an iron would be the last thing I would want to bother with! I would prefer to spend a few dollars and not have the hassle, and not have to worry about starting a fire!

I have taken a steamer & have to unplug it to stop it from steaming. But it would be best (& safest) to hang your harments in the bathroom while you take a shower & the creases should come out.

I've done all of the above - at one time in the past, I never traveled without my travel iron. But, after reading something about fires at sea, decided the risk wasn't worth it. We figured we were spending lots of money on the cruise, anyway, what was a few more dollars? It was worth the peace of mind. Anything that didn't come unwrinkled by hanging in the steamy bathroom got sent out to be pressed. I agree, it's not worth risking your own or other people's safety just to get rid of a few wrinkles. Some of them come right back, anyway, as soon as you sit down :-)

Try Downy Wrinkle Releaser or Magic Wrinkle Remover (my favorite, but sometimes hard to find). Works great on casual clothes!

I NEVER take an iron, but I DO take a travel steamer that works just great! It's light weight and not real bulky. This is my suggestion to any and all who do alot of traveling
Buy yourself a steamer. I bought mine at Walmart for less than $20.00, and have used it for 3 years and it's still going strong.
