Default inspiration voltage

I have just been reading an article on what to pack. It says that most ships were built in europe and therefore the voltage is 220. Can anyone tell me if this is true. is the inspiration 110 or 220

Inspiration.. and most all other ships have both 110 and 220 outlets. There's no problem there. The problem is the shortage of outlets in the cabin. Normally only one outlet in the central cabin area, so taking along a mulit plug extension to charge batteries, etc. is a good idea.

Not sure if their is a 220V outlet in the room in the room or not. From what I remember they have 110/220 outlets in bathrooms but they are intended for electric shavers only. You might need a converter. Also since there are different 220v outlets in different parts of the World you might need a set of adapters.

Yep, there is indeed a 110/220 outlet in the cabin, on, or over the desk.
