We have cruised for years and have always brought a power strip as there are never enough outlets in the cabin. This has never been a problem, but this time it was confiscated. Obviously I missed something, as did many others since when we went to reclaim it at the end of the cruise, the table was a "sea" of confiscated power strips. I checked with a friend who was on another line at the same time we were and she said that they did not have their power strip taken. There were two outlets by the desk, so we were okay in the end. I do wish they had a suitable outlet in the bathroom for a hairdryer. The hairdryers on the ship are inadequate to say the least.
