Default Travel clothes iron

I'm getting ready to take cruise and the last time we cruised I had to wait for the use of the clothes iron. Can we bring our own travel sized iron?

No you cannot bring one on, sorry. You can however buy a little hand held steamer which is what I just used and it works great!
What some folks do is, while you're taking a shower, place the wrinkled garment in the bathroom with you to get out the wrinkles.

If you neatly pack your garments they should be okay .

It will be confiscated. Sometimes there is an iron in the laundry room. I have found dry cleaning to be the same price on board as it is at home, so I just wait to dry clean our garments there that I would otherwise do at home.

I'm always on the look out for cruise clothes, stuff that are made of fabrics that don't wrinkle much. I also pack a bottle of wrinkle release and do the shower thing with my clothes that get creased.

I agree with this and I'm pretty cheap

One TSA worker going through you lugagge, can undo your neatly packed clothing in a minute, but I have packed a small steamer iiron, and had no issues...I compare this item with a womans flat iron, it heats up exactly the same,and, many shut thenselves of, with non use. Imagine if the cruise lines said not to that item!! I sit my steamer on a damp face cloth after I use it.

You can aloo pack with plastic cleaner bags, or bubble pack, between the layers, or steam the item in the bathroom,w/ the door shut.

I buy wrinkle release and it works well. I find it at the Family Dollar store for about $1.50 a bottle.
