Thanks everyone. I will go buy a portable steamer today, as well as the Downy.

As pointed out, there are no irons allowed because of a fire hazard. However, a trick I learned from my dad was if you hang stuff up in the bathroom, the steam will take most of the wrinkles out as people shower. Or you can have it pressed by the laundry service onboard.

Actually, I think RCI must have changed its policy about bringing irons on board. I was quite open about it on my most recent trip and had no problem at all. I carried them in the same bag as my woods.

The last cruise we were on (RCL) the room steward told the people next door to us that she would have to confiscate their iron if she saw it again.....why endanger a whole ship just for a few wrinkles.....and as others have said...No body really cares if you have wrinkled clothing...Just have a great cruise...

It isn't about anyone saying anything if you smuggle an iron into your stateroom, it's about rules and regulations pertinent to the safety of thousands of passengers.

HI Sonny,

To be honest, I think its about making money to be fair, they allow hair straighteners which are as dangerous as an iron if left in too long, by not allowing Irons you have to avail of their 'laundry and ironing service'

And no one in their right mind wants to be seen in wrinkled clothes to be fair.

All responsible adults take care.
