Can I plug in my electrical equipment on board?

The electrical voltage and socket types used on board cruise ships can vary depending upon the cruise line and point of origin, however, ships are usually fitted with standard US, European or UK sockets or a mixture of these.

Standard electrical supply in the United Kingdom operates at 240V and three-pin UK sockets on cruise ships operate at 220V or 230V volts which should be sufficient for charging electrical equipment like laptops and mobile phones.

Most cabins should also be fitted with a hairdryer and a standard electrical shaver charger.  

You will find that most cruise lines have European or American sockets onboard with the exception of P&O Cruises. The P&O fleet operates with standard UK three-pin plug sockets with the exception of ships Oceana and Britannia which also have US two- pin sockets in addition to the UK three- pin ones.

Another cruise booked with the amazing Elise Jones. Elise is so helpful and managed to sort us out the perfect cruise at a great price. We'd recommend her any day.

Went the extra mile for us to secure the free drinks package

Booked Fred Olsen Cruise for us quickly and also had to challenge them to put the free drinks package back on as advertised when Fred had removed it.

Fantastic service.

Fantastic information and I am really impressed with the service, I have received from Nicola(Boyd). So impressed I recommended family members who booked up straight away. I cannot speak highly enough of the manner , warmth and efficiency of NIcola. Within a week I have booked 2 cruises with her, as the price and advice was second to none.Well done Cruise Kings!
