Default Bringing Fan On Board

Can I bring a small table top fan on board? I have slept with a fan for 25 years & KNOW I won't be able to sleep without the "white noise." Can I bring a fan & will I need an extension cord?
Thanks!
Pam

Pam- I too can't sleep without a fan. We have always asked for one from our room attendent. With a little cash tip.....I always have one plugged in and waiting for me when we return!!!

I too cannot sleep without a fan. For my next cruise, I have bought a small portable one that easily fits inside my luggage. I will be taking an extension cord just in case. Some friends of mine always carry their large regular size fan on their cruises in the box that it came in and have never had a problem.

I always take a little portable fan (5" blades) and plug it into the vanity outlet. Works just fine, and moves the air around in the cabin. No problems with taking it aboard at all. 8)

Good advise on the extension cord!
I will never cruise without one again.
When I realized I needed one on my last cruise, the pursers office would not give me one unless it was for medical reasons!
I had to wait till we got to Nassau to buy one!

You might check Walmart or online but I pretty sure they have travel size fans that run on batteries...It would keep you from having to mess with an extension cord. I can't imagine lugging a full size box fan and extension cord on board but as we all know, what to pack is a very individual, subjective thing.

I always bring my 10" fan which operates on batteries or electricity. This little fan works great, I purchased it at Wal*Mart for under $15. It is light, compact and has lots of power.

Definitely needed, as it appeared the AC was not as strong while in port.

For a Northern Guy in the Caribbean, it was extremely warm and humid in the room (yes, I know.. that is normal down there... however, that is why I love my AC)
