Default Electrical outlets on ships

Are electrical outlets on the Emerald compatible with North American or European plugs/voltage?

110 Volt AC, American type of wall socket. The shaver socket in the bathroom can accomodate both 110 V AC and European (2 prong) 208 V AC, but is not rated for high power such as one would need for a hair dryer.

Default plugs

The only plus are beside the desk in non=suite rooms. Take a power stripif you have more than two items to plug in and re-charge!

There is a "hidden" european style plug in the Emerald cabins. It is behind the beds and you lose one of the bedside lights if you choose to use the plug. My DH uses a cpap which is dual voltage and we were pleased to find this as it made using the machine very easy since he could plug it in right beside the bed. All we had to do was use the plug adaptor. We did replug the light before we left the cabin. The beds are a little difficult to pull away from the wall.

The socket under the bed is 2-pin German standard 220V. If your device is "smart" (look for voltage rating on the label... if it says something like 120-240V 50/60 Hz.) you're OK

All you'll need is an adapter. Look at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss...+usa+to+europe

This outlet is great for a CPAP - no need for an extension cord. I crawled under the bed the first day, unplugged the lamp, and plugged in the CPAP. Stowed the CPAP on the nightstand shelf during the day. Reversed it the last day. The steward let it completely alone.

In addition to the outlet on dressing table, there's also one behind the TV - at least in the outside cabins. never looked there when in an inside cabin.

A little help, please!

I do understand the need for an adapter for the plug under the bed, and will get one. Great find for the CPAP solution!

For the other outlets, though, I am confused by some of what I read in the thread. Do the ship's outlets accept a standard 3 prong extension cord, or do I need to get an 3-2 prong adapter for that? It is difficult for me to tell from the photos (not a problem with the photos at all, just a possible inability on my part to interpret what I am seeing and reading above).

Thanks!

The two outlets in the cabin at the desk are US 3-prong 110v outlets. You can plug in any 2-prong plug or use any 3-prong extension cord. The outlet in the bathroom is 110/220v, US or UK 2-prong plug.

Except for the under-bed outlet , all "regular" outlets are standard USA 3 prong grounded outlets. No adapter necessary for any US/Canadian device, power strip, or extension cord.

Thnaks to both of you! I guess my senior moments are becoming senior minutes, and I sure got lost in that one.
