Pack lightly and launder clothes in the on board self service launderettes or wash and drip dry in your bathroom and use the ships pressing service. I never use ships laundery service as clothes have been damaged in the past.

Hi! There are no self service launderettes on RCI ships. Laundry & Pressing service only......Wilba.

I stand corrected. I have never sailed on this line. I would still avoid the laundry and use the pressing service only. Having travelled extensively over the years and in some very out of the way and primitive places, I know there is very little you can't wash and drip dry in your own bathroom. A cruise ship bathroom is a doddle. Or just use a bigger suitcase, pack the lot and have them all pressed.

Like most cruise lines, Irons are banned by RCI as they are a fire risk! Read RCI's T's & C's ...Wilba.

I always take an iron but i dosnt get has hot as in england but if you want a ironing service thats not a problem your clothes will come back pressed lovely. last year when i took my iron when we got to miami sea port security they made me take it out of my case put it in my hand baggage and had my name and no of cabin i was staying in but after that it was ok.

I'm sure that irons are banned on RCI ships due to fire hazard. Check the FAQs on their website.

I suggest you read the Terms & Conditions of RCI & most other cruise lines. So when there's a fire on board it'll be so nice to know your clothes are nicely pressed as we all scramble for the lifeboats!!

A trick I use is to roll your clothes up rather than folding and you will find they don't need ironing!!!!

Life as a Crew Member The ...

By Elise Otaki

The endless rumours about crew life always tickle me – working 24 hours a day, getting paid next to nothing and sharing a room with 184 other people. The simple truth of the matter is – you do work long hours, you are away from home for long periods and it is blooming hard going sometimes BUT you get a job that takes you around the World! Surely a bit of overtime is worth that?I have to confess that I was lucky – I joined P&O in the Shore Excursions department, so I auto...

So this week marks the Japan week promoting various different cruise lines that are incorporating a stay and cruise, with new 2018 itineraries now in place.So why is Japan a top destination in 2017 – Here’s what my colleague Holly had to say.“Japan had proved to be a top destination for 2017 and is already in demand for 2018 so why is this the case? After visiting Japan myself in 2016 and also with Joanna Lumley’s Japan airing on ITV in September 2016 it really is of n...

Over the last few years here at www.CRUISE.co.uk we have seen the cruise industry change massively. Gone are the days when a simple cruise will suffice, people are now wanting more from their cruise.We are seeing a steady rise in the requirements to do a land stay prior to the cruise (or after it in some cases). Not only that but people are wanting tours and particularly escorted tours that really give an essence of that region.Our most popular package of the last few years has undoubtedly been...
