sleep apnea ~ CPAP machine~ electical outlet?
 
Anyone know if the Carnival Legend has electrical outlets near the bedstand?

A late reply but maybe it will still be timely... Yes, there are outlets near the beds.

Always pack an extension cord for the CPAP
 
Pack an extension cord because you can never be certain the outlet by the bed will work. Better to be safe versus sorry. Also, check the power immediately upon boarding and if there is an issue be sure to get the ship working on it because they can be very very slow.

Glad someone asked this question; my wife and I are cruising on Celebrity Inifinity in Sept. and I've been wondering if there were outlets near the bed, as we both use CPAPs.
anyone been on Infinity that can verify?

Almost every ship has only one 110 outlet in the main cabin. So always bring, at least a ten foot, extension cord.

As a former CPAP user I always carried an extension cord, with a multi plug end, in the CPAP carrying case. The extension cord STAYED in the case and was not used for anything else.

Most hotels, motels, cruise ships and some of your friends homes do not have outlets next to the bed and the extension cord is a life saver. A CPAP should never be placed on the floor because it will suck up the carpet dust and contaminants that sink to the floor. The filter will filter most of them out but your CPAP will "smell" and I don't take the chance.

The cords are cheap and can be found at any hardware store, Wal-Mart, or other store. Buy one and keep it in the machine's carrying case.

Take care,
Mike

Thanks, We're thinking about taking a cruise again but we've both been dxed with OSA since our last cruise. Is there any problems getting the equipment onboard --thru security or thru airlines security?? and is there room to place the equipment by your bed?? we're thinking Alaska this time and flying to Seattle-- I think the ship would be Carnival Spirit

We have brought a cpap on both of our cruises with not a single problem. But like many have said - bring an extension cord! RCL had a plug right by the bed, NCL did not.
