Dry Cleaning Formal Dress on board?

I read a suggestion that you can have your formal wear dry cleaned on ship instead of before you leave home. I have a formal dress that will get so crinkled in transit. Has anyone done this before? Would you feel comfortable will a special dress? Do you know where I can find prices?

I don't remember prices, but the first thing we do once we're in our room on embarkation day is send our gowns and dress shirts to the dry cleaning service for pressing. They come back wrinkle-free and pressing-only is half the price of full dry cleaning. Princess Schmoo has a price list, so hopefully she will swing by and post it.

We LOVE this service and it is cheaper to have done on the ship vs at home (for us).

That's OK, it's a common mistake, I try not to get too bothered about it.

we always send away dresses/suits/tuxes/shirts for pressing and dry cleaning as it is much cheaper on the ship than it is at home and I have always been very happy with it. My formal dresses have always come back perfect.
