I've read that you are not allowed to bring an iron on the ship (Explorer of the Seas) and I can't seem to find a clothes steamer that's of any worth. Seems everything good was sold during Christmas time. Can't order anything online because I'm leaving this week. What do most people do to get their clothes unwrinkled? I've heard that Explorer of the Seas doesn't have a laundry room and I don't want to pay a fortune to have all my clothes pressed.
If you pack your clothes inside those long, plastic dry cleaner bags, and also pack carefully, you really shouldn't get many wrinkles. Sounds weird, I know but I have tried using the plastic dry cleaner bags and it really does work pretty well. If you do get a wrinkle or two, hang the garmet in the bathroom and turn on the shower. Let the steam build up and wallllahh!!!!

I JUST BOUGHT A SUNBEAM TRAVEL IRON FROM WAL-MART WITH WATER IN THE HANDLE FOR STEAM. WHEN NOT USING, IT FOLDS UP FLAT. YOU CAN ALSO USE IT WHEN CLOTHES ARE HANGING UP AND STEAM THEM. I THINK IT WAS LESS THAN $20. DITTO ON BEING CAREFUL AFTER YOU USE IT AND PUT IT AWAY SO YOU KNOW FOR SURE THE PLUG IS PULLED.
7 cruises with a travel iron, never a problem....took downy wrinkle releaser in november along with the travel iron and never needed the iron....highly suggest the downy, travel iron too if u think u wwill need it.
Yes, you're not supposed to use an iron on any cruise ship, but we've broken the rule every time. We're just really really careful using our teeny weeny travel iron and hide it away in the drawer when we're done. Works every time.
I purchased a steamer from OREK it works fantastically and has some great attatchments comes with a travel bag just purchased two more a week ago for my group going in April they were $9.99 and free shipping go to Orek.com and pick one up.
I did not have to use my steamer on the last two cruises, but nice to have just in case.
