Default How much tip necessary to get someone to iron few garments?

Has anyone any experience in this arena?

Who were you thinking of asking? You can send in your clothes to be pressed; I am not sure what the charges would be. The clothes will then be delivered to your cabin; I don't think any tip would be necessary.

I was thinking of asking the cabin steward? Is this the one that cleans the rooms?

The cleaning lady in aruba did my laundry and pressed the clothes for a large tip.

The cabin steward is a very busy person. You would be better off sending them to get pressed. There are also irons available on each deck. 15 mintues and your done.

There is a set fee for any type of laundry service, washing, ironing, etc., the fee schedule is in each stateroom. Be wary of using the iron in the laundry rooms until you look it over carefully, we used an iron to press a blouse and there was a burr on the plate of the iron which pulled the fabric on the blouse and it was ruined.

your room steward does not do laundry. You can either press your garments yourself, or you can send them out to laundry services for a set fee. The fees will be posted in your stateroom.
