  1. We know that power strips with surge protectors are forbidden aboard ship. I just stumbled across something that others might find useful. On Amazon, search for "power strip cruise ship" and you will get pages of power strips without surge protection. They all seem to have USB ports as well.
  2. Yes, a Wi-Fi extender like either of those will do the job. I suggest that you set it up at home so that you won't waste precious cruise time figuring out how to configure the device (it's not difficult). Just use it to extend your home Wi-Fi network and then connect to it with your home computers. When you get aboard, simply substitute the ship's Internet service for your home Wi-Fi network (after you sign up for the ship's service).

  5. It's got to be a Hotspot Router, not a regular router. You need two radios and the capability to both connect to the ship's network and create a private network for your devices. Good point. We used a variety of these in RV parks while we were traveling full time. That allowed us to share park Wi-Fi or our cellular data connection. Another point is that both users must be physically close enough for a router to be a solution. One can't be in the cabin while the other is in the Explorer Lounge, for example.
  6. Some folks apparently bring routers aboard to solve this problem. Here is one thread that discusses it: Wi-Fi routers
  7. I understand that the Eurodam now has wall-mounted TVs in the cabins. This morning we booked into a VB cabin for the Hawaii cruise out of San Diego in February. My wife uses wireless headsets to hear the TV. Does anybody know if the TV our cabin will have an accessible headset jack? Thanks.

  9. We decided today to book a Panama Canal round-trip cruise on the Volendam, starting in San Diego on January 3 (just three and a half weeks away!). Partly because everything else is sold out, we are booking an obstructed view cabin (HH guarantee). Does anybody know what the TV will be like in such a cabin? Specifically, will it have a headphone jack? My wife uses cordless headphones, and they require either a headphone or RCA audio-out plug on the TV to work. Our last cruise was on the Amsterdam, and the cabin had a newish TV with a headphone jack, but it was a much more expensive cabin.
