I need to bring an extention cord and need to find out if the outlets are grounded or non-grounded. If it makes any difference, we are on the NCL Sun.
We usually take a coarse nail file along, so that I can file the wider prong of the extension cord down to fit, if necessary. Never had any problem charging our toys, such as iPods, cell phones, cameras, etc. Grounded outlets or not, did not seem to matter.Why polarization is good, and using a nail file is Bad: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AC_powe...s#Polarization
Ok...maybe I'm being a bit contrarian here but...grounded? Can anything be grounded on a floating ship? I thought "grounded" meant connected to an uninterrupted conduit which is buried in the ground.OK answer from a master electrician. Yes the ship is grounded by being submerged in the water. The ground wire does not have to be buried in earth it just has to have contact with the earth. Water serves as the conductor and as long as the ship does not leave the water it has contact with a ground source.
Yes, the receptacles accept three prong plugs. ...but, grounded? .., I'm not sure.
