However, it has been designed to be shipboard safe. The ON switch is
not lockable and extended use triggers the thermal switch which
shuts it off. Ours had a removable plastic cone to increase airspeed
but using the cone also adds some back pressure and the internal
heat soon tripped the breaker switch off.
I have found that on cruise ships and most hotels, if you have long, thick hair it would be quicker to just blow on it yourself than rely on the supplied dryers. I have a nice little travel one that folds up small but is still powerful. Wouldn't travel without it!

I always being my own fold up travel hair dryer. I have short hiar, but very thick. The one in the room takes forever (I tried it once) to dry my hair and it smelled musty. If your not picky or have thin hair it would probably be fine.

Also the hairdriers operate on 220v and only work at the vanity. They will not plug in in the bathroom which is a bummer because the mirrors fog up really bad in the small space and short of opening the door and letting cold A/C air in the olny options for us guys is to shave with a towel streaked mirror or freeze. I've suggested to RCI after every cruise that the upgrades include electric mirror defogger pads on the back side of the mirrors so they can't fog up in the first place. They're less than the cost of a table lamp and save time cleaning streaked mirrors.
