NO. No cruise lines have irons in the cabins. Its a major fire hazzard. Some ships have irons available in the laundary rooms but I have never been on the Glory so I can't answer for you. Many of the regulars bring steamers to take out wrinkles. I never bother. You are on a ship where everyone else had to pack their clothes too. No one is going to gasp and ridicule you for having a few wrinkles.

Hi Luv2Cruise2007, As has been posted, there are not any irons in the cabins on the Glory. The Glory has irons in the self serve launderettes. It is also against their policy to bring one on board.
I don't like wearing wrinkled clothes to the formal dinners and functions. The steamers Jim mentioned work pretty well. Downey Wrinkle Releaser seems to work pretty well for casual clothes. I do as Cruisehappy suggested, and at least send my dress shirts down to get pressed.
I have always been a Callaway and Ping fan but I am looking forward to trying out the new Taylor Made irons.
Seriously, once you master the art of carefully rolling your clothes prior to packing you will find that you incur far less wrinkles than conventional flat folding.
That is true there are irons in the self service laundry mat. check layout for location. HOwever, I have always taken my own iron with me. I have been on 10 carnival cruises and no one has ever said anything to me.
cruzincrazy, I am sure that you are very careful with your iron. However, that being said, I am adamantly against people bringing irons on board cruise ships. Not everyone is as careful as yourself and it is just a matter of time before there is a potentially tragic accident that could have been avoided. Cruise line's rules aren't put in place to punish anyone. They see the inherent dangers of irons and they have put forth rules and regulations to protect the cruising public. When we give advice, especially to cruising novices, we have to pay special attention to the information that we disemmenate. Let's set a good example and protect the safety of everyone on the ship.
