Hi McGuire - Are you saying that Island cruises employ people who don't clean under beds?? On RCCI suitcases are scanned on their ships, one couple told me that their suitcase was consficated by security. It wasn't returned until 2am (14 hours later) The couple had to track it down and got their wrists slapped for bringing an iron on board.
I've been on OV1 so can only speak for that one. Don't waste space taking an iron - there is a huge laudry with about 6 ironing boards and iron - very well organised and all the washer/dryers/irons work.
Hi matt as i say its luck if you get it through they do get scanned at port of palma as well when they come off coaches and they do clean under beds its like drink you are not suppose to take drink onboard which ican say i have not take juice on also they do have laundry on ship at a price also they iron as well for you .
Sorry mcguire, but you & people of the same mind,put all our lives at risk by disregarding rules that are in force for our protection. (bringing irons on board.)
DONT DO IT.
