I took a steamer on a cruise on the Glory and had no problems as far as Carnival was concerned. I did however did end up regretting bringing so many outfits that had to be steamed. I was having so much fun, I didn't want to take time out of my schedule of eating, socializing and exploring ports, that steaming was the last thing on my mind. JMHO.
Another options my friend suggested is to vacuum pack clothes before packing. The apparatus sucks out all of the air and neatly engolfs your clothes in plastic. This is cool because it also would save on space in your luggage.
I might break a record. Is this a "woman" thing or do men have problems with over-packing?
I am a young man, who definetly has a problem with overpacking. My problem is thinking too much about "What if...".
What if someone on my shorexcursion cuts themself bad, or similar emergency occurs, I had better bring my giant Johnson&Johnson first aid kit.
What if I loose something I need, I had better bring 2 of everything important
So on and so forth[/list]I need to break that bad habit. This next cruise of mine I will try.
Getting back to the topic of this post. I just might bring a steamer along with me. It might save allot of time I waste in the laundry room with the iron. Hopefully, I will save allot of space by packing less, so I can bring a steamer with me.
