Default electric curlers to Alaska

Hi All,

Had a couple of questions. We are going on a Alaskan cruise on Princess. Can you bring electric curlers and a steamer on the cruise?

Has anyone been on this cruise and have any good tips?

Thank you!

Yes, you can bring electric curlers and a steamer, just no irons....What are your ports and where to you start your Alaska cruise?

We took Coral Rincess from Alaska to Vancouver. You can check my review in the review section of the website.

I had my steamer confiscated when getting on a Carnival ship (and both lines likely have the same rules).
