Type of hairdryers on the Eclipse

Recommended Posts

I have thick hair and wondered what type or more importantly what is the power level the included dryers Celebrity has on the Eclipse.  I hate to bring my own because of luggage space but if the dryers are the old, attach to a walk or drawer, I will have to bring a stronger dryer.  Any information would be appreciated.

Not attached to wall or drawer.  Button must be held down to work, I have fine short hair and it works fine for me.  If I had thick hair I would bring my own dryer.

I was asked to check recently and they were 1,500 Watt.     The description jelayne is really good.   I believe the fact you have to hold the button and the wattage causes many people concerns.

I too have thick hair that's long as well. I always bring my own. The ship dryers, although not attached to a wall or drawer are weak and you have to continually depress the button for air flow or rig a thick strong rubber band or duct tape. It does a very poor job. The ship dryer takes at least 45 minutes to dry my hair. That's too much valuable vacation time wasted and my hair is frightful! I'd suggest bringing your own and omit (sorry) an extra pair of shoes! There are also some powerful travel hairdryers that are smaller and lightweight available.

Me too!!  I have never found a ship hair dryer that works for me.  For Christmas I got a Sephora travel hair dryer.  It is so tiny and light weight that I was skeptical....but it does a great job and bonus it is dual voltage.  It is under $50.   I did a lot of research on-line re travel hair dryers and this one was highly rated - I can see why.
