Is a garment bag considered a carry on luggage? Also, are you able to access your room once you board?

It probably depends on how much you put in it.

I put all my suits, dress slacks, Jackets, and shirts (other then T's and polos) on hangers in a garment bag--I've found they stay much nicer; but I can barely lift it and always put it with the checked luggage, on flights and ships.

A good ball-park estimate for when the cabins are ready is 1:00. You cabin may be ready sooner, but not much later.
This is why, if you plan to try to board early, you have whatever you may need in your carry on bags. And even if your cabin is ready by 1:00, you may not see all your luggage until 4:00-5:00 or later.

Thank you. I was trying to figure out how to keep our formal wear nicely pressed.

As long as it fits through the x-ray machine you can carry it on. I have carried in a fairly good sized suitcase.

As for the cabin, sometimes if they are still cleaning it you can drop off your luggage and go eat lunch.

Teachabcdee- Put your clothes in those dry cleaning plastic covers. If each are in those I find that they come through much less wrinkled than without.

hi Teach. Also keep in mind that the laundry room will have an iron and ironing board if anything needs a last minute touch up. First night on board is very casual. Usually what you arrived on board wearing.(within reason, of course) A'ndrea

Thanks Andrea, Unfortunately I am an iron freak so I'd better get used to somewhat wrinkled clothing.

It never fails that I always overpack, say I'll never do it again, and I keep repeating that same pattern. For the most part, you will live in your bathing suit for the week. If you keep that thought in your head, you just might pack more sensibly than I.

You can use the laundry service on board and have your clothes ironed for a small fee. It's worth it!
