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.

Excellent customer Care

Booking our first time cruise, Alana was a great help with her suggestions but was always focused on our own requests, she gave us many different quotes and changed them to suit us. Very patient and made us feel very appreciated. Later Vickie also helped with separate requests.... We now have two cruises booked. Very professional service. Quick yo respond and always very pleasant on emails and phones.
