Default power outlets on board

Hello. My family is going on a cruise aboard the Star Princess in February.

My question is: are the electrical outlets in our cabin compatible with typical North American appliances? ie: hair dryer, iPod USB Power Adapter, electric shaver.

Thanks

Mark

Yes, but in most cases there is only one plug in the cabin. And a low voltage plug for razors etc in the washroom.

We always take a power chord along equipped with extra plug ins.

also the plug in the bathroom will not accomodate your hairdryer, curling/straightening iron, its a non-polarized plug.

A power strip with a built in surge protector is a plus. Ship's power is not the cleanest or the most consistent. It also helps if you plug in a hair dryer at the same time as your computer.

It may cost a few dollars more, $40 vs. $10, but it's money well spent.

Take care,
Mike
