Hello. There are no irons available in the staterooms. They do have a dry cleaning, and laundry available for a fee. You can always put your clothes in the bathroom, during a nice hot, steaming shower. Have fun, and Bon Voyage. Lil' Lori

If you put things that tend to wrinkle easy into a plastic bag, it will really help. Also, we bring a portable steamer with us, and it works great.

Hi corkgirl. I hope this isn't too late for you to see before you fly out.

I can attest that putting clothing into a plastic bag works wonders. The key is making sure that the fabric does not fold onto itself. I packed three gowns into our garment bags this way for our last cruise, and they arrived wrinkle-free after an 8-hour flight.

Bon voyage!

I'm curious?? What kind of plastic bag? A plastic bag from the supermarket, a plastic trash bag. Does it matter what kind? I just had to ask! Lil' Lori

I use the thin plastic dry cleaning bags that come back with the cleaning at home. I then put the garment on the hanger, dry cleaning bag over it, and either fold/roll it for the suitcase or hang it in the garment bag. I do this separately for each dress that might wrinkle. I suppose plastic trash bags would work, too, if they're long enough.
