Hi, my second cruise coming up this weekend, TS Chris or not! Unrelated strange questions:
1. Can my 11 year old son and nephew sleep out on our balcony?
2. Are lights (camp lights, twinkle lights, etc. ) nice or necessary or dumb on a balcony? (With or without campers)
3. Will a 3 prong power strip work in my stateroom?
There are no regulations against sleeping on a balcony. As for lights on the balcony.. there is no power source on the balcony itself. For any lights out there, I would use something battery operated for fire consideration. As for the 3 prong power strip, usually there's no problem using those. I always throw in an adapter just in case. Generally though, the plugs are grounded 3 prong plugs.
Your kids "can" sleep on the balcony.
You can put lights on the balcony but they should be turned off at a regular time. Have consideration for your neighbor if they are bright.
A three prong power strip is fine and actually a very good idea.

Wow, children sleeping on the balcony, I wouldn't risk it, they are somewhere new and if they wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom they might be a little disoriented and think they are still in their bedroom at home. My grandson occasionally sleepwalks so there is no way I'd allow him to sleep on the balcony. I make sure the balcony door is locked real good before we go to sleep and have even put a chair in front of the stateroom door because he sleepwalked right out into the hallway on one cruise and was walking down the hall in his pj's, good thing I'm a light sleeper.
EOTS has three prong standard power receptacle above the desk. There is no power plug in the bathroom, so if you plan to use a hair dryer, curler, etc. in the bathroom, take a 25' indoor type extension cord with a three-way tap.
