  Several cruise trips have already been cancelled this year. See when major cruise lines plan on operating again. No major cruise line - including Carnival and Royal Caribbean - will be setting sail around the US until March the soonest.The cruising industry initially saw a quiet period after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted and extended its no-sail order as the coronavirus pandemic began surging in 2020. But after months of of waiting, in October, the CDC replaced its mandatory sailing pause with the "Framework for Conditional Sailing Order," a list of rigorous requirements needed for cruise lines to continue operating again.

  Are You Ironing Wrong? 8 Tips on Getting it Right © George Doyle/Stockbyte/Thinkstock

Banish wrinkled shirts and rumpled sheets for good with these perfect-pressing tips from Donna Wallace, product manager for Rowenta Irons.

1. Sort clothes according to temperature, working from coolest to hottest. Iron silks and synthetics on low to medium heat (approximately 350°F), wool on medium to high, and cotton and linens at high temperatures (400°F to 425°F). Since the right temperature is critical, let the iron sit for a few minutes after you have adjusted the controls.

2.  Hang up or fold your garments immediately after ironing them.

3. Never use circular strokes — you can stretch the fabric. Iron lengthwise and eliminate wrinkles by blasting the area with steam.

  Watch Kate Middleton’s First-Ever Personal Selfie Video You don't often see a royal taking a selfie."You do not turn your back on the royal family, and you do not attempt to walk up and talk to them," Greg Agnew, a royal fan who attended the Queen's Buckingham Palace garden party in May 2017, told the publication. The palace did not confirm this rule, but Meghan Markle reportedly did in 2017:"We're not allowed to do selfies," Meghan is said to have told a fan in Nottingham. She did, however, break protocol for a selfie in 2019.

4. When ironing large items, such as a tablecloth or curtains, set up two chairs next to the ironing board and fold the piece carefully onto the chairs as you work on it. You could also iron large items on a tabletop padded with a towel, provided that the table won't be harmed by the steam or hot temperatures.

5. Iron sensitive fabrics with a pressing cloth — a clean cotton cloth, handkerchief, or napkin. Iron fabrics inside out to protect them from becoming singed or shiny.

6.  If you must use an extension cord with your iron, use a 12-ampere cord. Lighter-weight cords could overheat, causing fires. Make sure that you arrange the cord so you won't trip over it.

7.  Press pleats starting from the bottom, working from the inside of the pleat to the outside. Set pleats with a shot of steam.
