Generally, on the newer ships there is an outlet available next to the bed. But I wouldn't bet on it. You will most likely have to run an extension cord from the desk to your bedside table. Yes, your steward will get you one, but I just bring my own. Just make sure it's in great shape and DOES NOT (seems counter-intuitive, I know) have any fuse or surge protection in it. I use something like this, which also provides a couple of "spare" outlets for chargers!!
