Many ships do provide a facility, it is not always advertised so I would think Ocean Village will be able to provide the facility, just ask your stateroom/cabin attendant when you arrive on board, however you are on holiday so try and take as many fabrics with you where ironing isn't necessary. Certainly given the weight of an iron it may push up your baggage above the limit for flying off to join your cruise ship. Failing all of this there is a laundry on the ship and it goes almost non stop a bit like the kitchens and the cost is normally very reasonable.

We have done several cruises and irons have never been permitted in the cabins.. too much of a fire risk! The laundry rooms have always been very well equipped.

It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

Thomson Spirit, goodbye old friend?

By Gordon Maney

Well, I am just back from my 3rd stay on the Thomson Spirit, and yet again, it was a wonderful experience.It has been called the friendliest ship at sea and I certainly could not argue with that, you feel like one of the family.As Thomson continue to modernize their fleet, with the TUI Discovery 1 & 2, and the Explorer next year, the decision has been made to let both the Spirit and the Majesty go.What the ship may lack in modern technology, it more than makes up for in other ways.The foo...
