Clothes Iron in my Room?

Inside staterooms have clothes irons?

Nope! You have to use the ones in the laundry.

Personal irons are prohibited on the cruise. If you pack one in your suitcase they will confiscate it and return it to you at the end of the cruise. Major fire hazard on cruise ships.
I have used the laundry room irons many times, and have also used the reasonable pressing services from the laundry.

I have a little travel one I used to bring with me, but it's easier to use the one in the laundry.

Ironing on the bed is inconvenient .

NO cabins have irons in them and you are not permitted to bring one (if it is in your luggage, it will be confiscated and returned at the end of the cruise).

There are irons and ironing boards available in the self serve laundry rooms (free to use the irons), and you can send items out for "press only" if desired.

easier and most importantly safer and “legal” if you will!

Legal? When I did carry it on, I'm not sure it was illegal. I carried it without concealing it.

It is unfortunate when contraband is missed in security, lord knows I've unwittingly traveled with things I shouldn't have! My point, made poorly, was that more important than anyone's "convenience" is safety, with which I am sure you will agree!

Did you read into my post that I was suggesting to carry one on? I used to carry one on. By used to it was 1999. Also, I clearly said that it's easier to use the one in the laundry. So no illegal activity with disregard to human safety...

I've never brought an iron as I know it is against DCL's policy.

But dang, my daughter's flat iron is hotter than any travel iron on the planet. Those things get HOT! She has very thick hair and unfortunately, is going through that "straighten" look now (she's 14). I still have a scar on my foot to prove it (when I dropped it while doing her hair). You use it, let it cool down before putting it away. I never leave the room and think, 'did I turn it off?' Because I treat it like a open flame candle. Those things get hot! So be careful with those too.

My flat iron gets super hot also we have a special pad to put it on to keep from burning things. Also very careful to unplug it always but it turns itself off after 20 mins

I also second that its easier to just send stuff out to be pressed. We always pack clothes that are mostly wrinkle free except my husband s shirts always need pressed. I think its like 2.50 a shirt

Best 7.50 I spent on the cruise since I didn't have to stand over an iron for 1/2 hr ( I am a slow ironer)

Your post implied that the reason you use the one in the laundry was based on the inconvenience of using your own in the room. Nothing else.You never mentioned that it was against policy. So, while you didn't suggest anyone carry one on, you didn't discourage it either.

I do use the one in the laundry because of convenience

The previous posts said it was against policy. Why should I restate that? I was simply giving a diff reason.
