Adapter advice

Recommended Posts

We're first time cruisers, and I've reading about the lack of outlets in cabins. We thought to use adapters for the 220v outlet, but I seem to remember reading that there were some fit problems. Any recommendations?

We use our euro adaptor all the time when we cruise. We've never had a problem.

Tagging on here - I'm wondering about adapters for hotels in Beijing and Tokyo. Any advice about that?

In the Cortis Auckland hotel New Zealand, the had one and only one adapter. But I had an adapter converter, as well as the international kits for both my kindle and iPad.

The front desk will not give you a "surge strip", they are forbidden on cruise ships. They will give you a plug strip or plug bar, which is just a multiplug strip with no surge protection. Almost every electronic device made in the last 10-15 years will work on any voltage between 100 and 240 volts. Even my CPAP machine works perfectly on the 220 volt outlet at the desk. I do bring a plain vanilla extension cord and a European plug adapter to reach the bed. Most HAL ships also have USB charging outlets. So unless you are setting up massive amounts of equipment, there are plenty of outlets without having to smuggle a plug strip onboard.
