• Personal grooming devices such as hair dryers, flat and curling irons, shavers, etc., are allowed on board when used with proper caution. These devices should not exceed 700 watts and should not be used when other electrical appliances are plugged in. However, if such devices are determined to pose a hazard, they will be removed and returned the last day of the cruise prior to debark.

 

LOL! Who's is going to determine if they pose a fire hazard:confused: Boy that has cover my butt written all over it.........

Clean out the dust bunnies and make sure the cord is broken or frayed and you should be fine.

I would guess if someone had a hairdryer with electrical tape wrapped around the cord they would maybe flag that. :D

Electrical devices such as fans, power strips, multi plug box outlets/adaptors, and extension cords will be removed if determined to pose a hazard and returned the last day of the cruise prior to debark.

 

Back to the fan and power strip issue.... :cool:

To easily cover this I would think if you bought a power strip new and kept it in its original wrapping til you borded they couldnt really say anything?

That might work but I really can't buy a new hair dryer and straightener every time I cruise.

Who knew that taking a vacation would become such a chore? They want you to dress up and be all beautiful for the photos to purchase and then tell you that you can't bring on the tools to do it with??? *****??? Back to the condo at the beach. Have to cook & clean, but I'm a pretty darn good cook and have lots of help in the cleaning department. I can also bring all the extension cords, hair dryers, George Formans, etc. I can carry and no one gives a rats behind. Don't have to smuggle, just tote it right on in, and if I were so inclined, I could bring the not so legal stuff at my own risk. Not to mention the beach, 24/7.

 

I grew up a long time ago and don't need someone to 'big brother' me. I have a mom, and that's enough.

If it looks like crap or junk or in disrepair or we have a problem kicking breakers we're gonna junk it and save you from burning your house down when you go home. Sounds like a plan to me. The most upset have been the people who have purchased quality items for those same reasons and I would expect they would agree with this policy. I certainly don't want to be on a burning ship-I don't swim well. :eek::eek: Yeah we're covering our A$$ and yours also-Thank you not required.

Oh just reread that I guess you have the unalienable right to burn your house down as they will give it back to you-Get some wieners and marshmallows and have a great post cruise party.

 

 

HAPPY SAILS TO YOU!!

Because it is legal only in the prescribed state.

Not so at all. If the items in question are in good repair there won't be any issues.

You're not going to believe this...you can only take on two bottles of wine, you can't take any other booze at all. Those beards....must be trying to get us to cruise elsewhere. :confused:

What's next no luggage at all?

I would LOVE to believe that but they DID take a curling iron from a passenger last week, BEFORE the new rules were in effect.

 

Believe me, I don't want to burn up in my sleep, but I think they overdid it this time. Lots of covering their own a$$.

No worries. I'm going to use the white noise app on my phone and leave my fan at home when I leave in a couple days. Not taking any chances.... :cool:

Notice the red! No one uses hair dryers that are that weak, that is the complaint with the ones on the ship to begin with.

Do the suites have hairdryers on the Ecstasy?

Nope. None of the rooms on Ecstasy have hairdryers. Pack your own or you'll save LOTs of money on pictures like I did.:)

So for clarification....electric fans are okay as long as they are in good working order??

Confiscated Items

• Alcohol (hard liquor)/sealed, unopened bottles

• Beer/sealed, unopened bottles/cans

 

Prohibited Items – will be disposed of prior to boarding

• Alcohol in unsealed containers

 

So are they saying we can't bring our alcohol on board, but we can drink it all while in line to board? That'll make it a FUN embarkation line!
