I did see adapters on Magellen. Turkey and France the same. I have to re-check. May I ask where you purchased dual-voltage hair curlers? I have the Gold one, which has many heat numbers. Don't know if that is the same as dual-voltage. Originally tried to purchase a cordless travel iron but Conair stopped making them. They have Thermocell which is butane and we all know that won't fly! (pun intended) My last resort is to take along a few prickly rollers so I will at least look presentable. I will go back on Magellen and check it out.
Thanks for all the info. I just love this site.
texancruzer, I think we were on same roll call back in 2007 and we both went to the Med instead , Nov 18.
cruisemom42, weren't you on my roll call for that same date to the Med? We had great weather for that trip.
Believe it or not I got mine at my local grocery store. Think I paid around $20.00. It has 25 heat settings and a seperate little switch for 120 volt or 250 volt. That pretty much means it will work anywhere in that range. Europe is 220 I believe.
Also purchased a converter kit. It was in the $ 35-40. range. It includes all the adapters needed for just about anywhere. Got that at Radio Shack. Havent ever used the converter......just the adapters. But I have it just in case
We did our first Med cruise in November 2007 on Brilliance. We flew into Rome 2 days before Thanksgiving.....had Thanksgiving Dinner in Rome and left on the ship the next day - so perhaps the 26 or 27th ? Was that the cruise you were on? We definately had great weather !
NEXT UP: 9/3/16 SILHOUETTE Amsterdam to Rome - 12 nights
So far: 11 cruises - 5 Royal Caribbean, 4 Celebrity, 1 Princess & 1 Holland America
