Greetings, my wife is wanting me to find out if items such as curling irons or hair straighteners are allowed to be brought on the ship. Mariner of the Seas in 4 weeks!! Thanks for your help in advance.
I thought my wife was going a little nuts the first time she packed our clothes in those clear plastic bags (the ones you get from the cleaners). She said she had heard about that trick from one of her woman friends. When we unpacked after getting to our stateroom, it was amazing how that kept the garments virtually wrinkle-free!
No, you can't have an iron in your cabin. If the ship has a self-serve laundry, then the irons will be there. They're the type that are connected to the wall so they can't be taken out of the laundry room. Many ships now have done away with the self-service and have laundry service for a fee.
Johnboy, are you talking about those flimsy ones that just cover a suit or shirt from the dry cleaner? I have not tried those but have heard from others that the ones that you pack in a suck out the air work well; any comments.
