I was surprised to hear you can not use an iron in your stateroom. When in a hotel we set up with our laptop, speakers, small coffee maker, iron and grooming appliances. Will that not be possible on a cruise?

Not if you follow the rules.

And I suggest you do. A cabin on a ship is much smaller than a typical hotel room. But the main reasoning for the rules is the fire hazard.

When at sea, fire is a big concern for the safety of all the people on board. An appliance could be left un-attended or malfunction.

They do allow me to charge my video camera, and plug in my cd player, and if I had a laptop I am sure would be fine. They just don't like things with heating elements in them.

They have coffee and hot water 24/7, just call they will bring it to you.

And yet, apparently, steamers are allowed.

everytime I came back to my cabin my camera charger was unplugged. I bring a 3 way strip so I can plug in my cam charger my electric Tooth brush and anything else...My stewart unplugged it whenever he saw in plugged in. no big deal I understand the dangers even if the chance is small there is still that chance to ruin the cruise for all on board,
just my 3 cents

The power strip may be the problem. I've left cameras and laptops plugged in - by themselves and with no strip - and never had anything unplugged by the staff.

Terri R.,

This past cruise was the first time I recall them mentioning all that at Muster Drill. We have taken travel irons in the past with no problem. But when I heard it was a no-no switched to the steamer.

So now when they said about heating elements, I just sent my shirts down to get pressed. But I used the steamer on my dress pants and jacket and then unplugged, emptied it and stowed it away.

So, I am trying to be a good cruiser, but they changed the rules from no irons to no heating elements. Since I had it I used it. But will just send everything down from now on that wrinkle reducer, or a good steam shower does not cure
