Extension Cords

We were on the Magic 3 years ago and 'used' an extension cord from the ship. We put down a $25.00 deposit and it was refunded when we turned it in.

The worse case scenario is a fire at sea on a ship. Since nobody can guarantee the quality of said electrical strip plug I for one would agree on a ban on such items. They do supply electrical outlets in each cabin.

It's all about fire safety. That's why there are no irons in staterooms plus I can't imagine where you'd put one/use one. I've also read reports on other cruise lines that hair dryers etc. have been taken. I think that's probably a bit rare and I can't imagine that anyone goes through the bags with that much scrutiny but..... It looks like that one Belkin strip has been successful so I'll be investing.

What did you let them know? That you were surprised an item clearly listed on the prohibited list was actually prohibited?

Sorry for the delayed response...

The safe was a keypad (much easier than the card swipe ones) and no, they haven't converted the light switches like on the new ships.

I wasn't even thinking they would take it from your bag, but remove it from your stateroom if they saw it being used. Never really thought about it though b/c I don't really have a need for extra outlets on a cruise.

If you decide to play it safe and leave the power strip at home, the Magic and Wonder both have two power outlets behind the TV in most staterooms (only one plugged in for the TV) right next to the counter power outlet.

I use a CPAP machine and forgot my extension cord

and, I was able to get one from the Customer Service Desk for a $50 deposit which I got back when I returned the cord before we left. We crusied on the Wonder last year.

Our last 2 cruises that 2nd outlet was the one being used for the WavePhone charger.

Depends which ship you're talking about.

On the classic ships, I know there's an outlet on the desk (2 outlets) as well as the double one behind the TV. And there's an outlet for razors in the bathroom. There is an outlet for the clock by the bed, but it really back underneath the bed and difficult to get to.

I don't know the specifics on the new ships, but I've read there are more.

Here's a picture of the one on the desk (wavephone cord is going behind TV)

I've never had need for an extension cord, but I always travel with a surge protector/power strip. I've been using this one lately.

As this picture clearly shows, there are 2 outlets. Now think about the shape, size and orientation of the chargers you have for phone, camera, battery chargers, wave phone, iPad/Pod/Phone and you quickly realize that there really is only 1 outlet, because with this configuration you cannot plug in two devices at the same time. And I have at least one device that will NOT plug in here at all.

I'm ignorant of US power outlets but what resides behind the blanks? Is it possible to move the sockets around in the block?

On The Belkin charger I posted that we use, the plug rotates, so it can be used in any direction.
