In your case, I may consider taking your own, especially if you have long thick hair. Theirs are on the low power side and could take awhile to dry. Although the one I just had on Freedom of the Seas was almost too powerful.
I, too, have long thick hair and with the hairdryers provided, it takes about 45 mins to dry my hair. I purchased a travel hair dryer from Sharper Image (1875 watts) and it packs nicely in it's own carry case. Much easier to pack than my regular hairdryer. This was the only strong wattage travel dryer I have found and was reasonably priced.
Okay, I don't actually have a use for a hair dryer (check out my pic)
My better half is not crazy about the hair dryers on any of the ships. They're okay, but hair dryers seem to be like cell phones: they all work, some just have more power and work better than others.
As far as voltage goes: you should find 110v outlets in your cabin. Good luck, Steve

I agree....take your own hairdryer if you have the room in your luggage.
