What will the electrical sockets be in the cabin?

The cabin has one Australian socket and one European socket above the refrigerator, and one American socket by the dressing table. Also a shaver plug in the bathroom.

There will be at least one formal night as well as "Gatsby" and "bianco" parties. If you are able to log in to p&o's cruise control, you will find more details there.

Like Trinny I and hubby are also sailing on this cruise and it is our first P&O cruise being more Princess and HAL cruisers. I don't find any day by day itinerary on my personal cruise info with regard to when the formal or special nights are and it is only a few days until we cruise - do you not get this info until you board? Also - any advice on the shore excursions for the ports such as Airlie Beach, Cairns and Port Douglas? The ships tours are quite expensive although you have peace of mind re any delays. I would love to see the Great Barrier Reef but I do not swim so need to consider either the pontoon or flight - any recommendations and from which port is best. I have ear-marked the Skyrail, Kuranda and Scenic Railway tour from Cairns with the ship but am yet to book.
