Irons/ Laundry on Magica?

Recommended Posts

I know we are not supposed to have a travel iron in our cabin, so are there places to iron clothes like on other ships? And does anyone know what is costs to have laundry washed?

I was On Magica June 2005 and had several shirts and shorts and t-shirts washed and pressed for about 20 euros.

 

Lily and I have just returned from 2 week back-to-back cruise Feb 12-26 on Mediterranea and we used their special deal of 40 items for $20.

 

It all came back perfectly washed and pressed the next day. Useful when you're on for 2 weeks.

 

Don't tell a soul, but yes, I do travel with an iron and do use it on ships. It's a Maxim 120 Va Model Maxsican. Very light and very inexpensive ($10 at Zellers in Canada) Put a towel on the coffee table when ironing. Keep it well hidden in your suitcase under the bed and ALWAYS make sure it's stone cold before you put it away. Magica and Mediterranea both have North American 110 Volt outlets.

Thanks Fred! 40 items for $20 does not sound too bad. I'm glad to know that I won't have to walk around a wrinkled mess all week :D . I had wondered if a travel iron would be confiscated from our luggage, but it does not sound like it from your post.

Try using the new Downy wrinkle release...its great and no ironing and they have travel sizes now.

On my shopping list! Thanks, didn't know they had a product out to release wrinkles. I was putting my cloths in the bath room when the shower was running, that work somewhat.

I, too, just bought the Downey Wrinkle release as I have read rave reviews about it. If it works that good on our up coming cruise, I am going to use it at home too!!
