Tissue paper or leaving the plastic bags from the cleaners cuts down on wrinkles as well. You can hang your items in the bathroom and the steam will remove most of the wrinkles. I wouldn't worry too much, everyone has a few. They also have laundry service on board.

Rolling works for me also, less wrinkles. The semi exception is my dress shirt, I fold that in a more traditinal way and then roll it. I'm not sure what my wife does, She seems to get a lot of stuff in 1 suitcase and it all looks good to me, even the sequined gown for formal night.

My problem, other than not packing correctly, is packing too much. For instance, last Christmas holiday, I visited NY for only 4 days and brought 3 suitcases. I am going on the Carnival Liberty 8 day Western Carib in October. I might break a record. Is this a "woman" thing or do men have problems with over-packing?

There is an issue on the ship having to do with CPS or cycles per second with the electricity. So I think some things under-perform and other electronic or electric things don't work at all.

It is true about the hair dryers on board, they are not very effective but they are in all the rooms.

This man has always had an overpacking problem. Year by year I manage to whittle off a little unnecessary stuff--but after 30+ years I still come home each time with things I could have left home.

I ALWAYS use less clothes than I take; mainly dress slacks and shirts and underware. I keep forgetting that with all the swimming I do, and a couple of showers a day, I just don't need that much.

But I'm still working on it.

Ken, yes, they have been in every cabin I've been in, and yes, they are not as effective as what we use at home.

You may take your own, but it probable won't perform any better than the one in the cabin.

About the hair dryers, I found this info. I am not sure if it is 100% because they are refurbishing all of the Fantasy Class ships. They are suppose to be re-doing the bathrooms. I don't know if putting in hair dryers is going to be a part of it.

We have taken a clothes steamer a few times and they didn't say anything. We unplugged it and stowed it away after use, so I don't know if they even knew

I guess I'm guilty on most levels. We have taken our clothes steamer and I have taken my flat iron. I'm traveling nowhere without my flat iron.

I go to the laundry room to use the ship's iron.

you're worrying too much. a few minor wrinkles don't show up in the photos, and no one else cares....
