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.

Happy Sailing

Yes, she can bring a curling iron. There is a blow dryer in your cabin. Irons are not allow so pack your clothes in plastic bags to keep them from getting wrinkled.

That's really a great suggestion, Sonny.

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!

We pack that way all the time now.

Can you borrow clothing irons from the ship at no charge?

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.

A portable hand steamer works great if you need to remove wrinkles. We always bring one on a cruise.

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.

Peter1, yes, these are the flimsy clear plastic bags that the cleaner puts over your shirts and suits.

Don't understand the physics of why they work, but they do!
