No irons in cabin.  Also you cannot bring one on board.

Yes, all staterooms have a hairdryer.

Shame there are no self-service iron or washing facilities on board RC ships. P&O have a laundry which you can use at your leisure. It's really just another money making exercise for RC!

Plus the space that would be used for the self-service laundry area would reduce the number of staterooms!😱

Respectfully disagree. If I want to do laundry or cook my own meals, I'd rent a house at the beach. Cruises are for not having to worry about that stuff. 🙂

Just as a heads up, the hairdryer isn’t very strong and you have to hold down the button to make it blow.  It takes forever to dry your hair.    I always take my own.

Respectfully disagree. One of the things I love about Carnival is the self serve laundry.  It gives me something to do for an hour or so on that last boring sea day.    I dont like paying 40 bucks to have a small bag of laundry done with everyone elses laundry and in extremely hot water. I certainly dont like traveling home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes.  Cruises are about whatever the individual wants them to be about

I believe all Carnival owned ships have them. Very convenient and "only" 6 bucks to wash and dry.  6 bucks is a bargain compared to the 40 they charge to do a small bag on RC and you dont have to worry about your stuff being ruined.

I have found that hanging items in the bathroom while the shower is running will steam the wrinkles out of pretty much everything.  However, you have to make sure you don't leave them in there too long or else the steam condenses on the ceiling and drips down onto your clothes.

Those blow dryers in the cabins are a pain in the butt!

Keeping your finger on the button so it stays on is sooo annoying!

As stated they do not dry the hair quickly.

I agree with sellwingri, bring your own.

Princess ships also has the self service laundry rooms.  When we use to cruise with Princess we never used the irons in the laundry room. Nice option for those that want to.

Same reasoning why I cannot see the appeal of an RV.

I’ve cruised on other lines that have a laundry room. Never occurred to me to use them. I also don’t iron at home (haven’t owned an ironing board in at least 40 years). If it requires ironing, I don’t buy it.

I read somewhere on CC that Royal Stewards will bring you an iron & board to use for a few hours.

I really doubt they doing much pressing or laundry, or making much money doing so.

I may be incorrect, but I thought I had read it on CC. No worries!
