Complete Cruise Ship Plug Socket Guide: Search by Ship

If you are taking a cruise you may be wondering which plug sockets will be in the cabin. The below post details the plug sockets found onboard the cruise ships from Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Carnival Cruise Line

It’s important to know which plug sockets will be in your cabin as it’s likely you’ll need to bring travel adapters. The majority of cruise ship cabins have a combination of US and European plug sockets with some newer ships also having USB sockets.

If you feel as though you may need more plug sockets you may tempted to bring a power strip or power cord. These are banned by most cruise lines and as your luggage is searched on embarkation, one should not be brought on board. To find out why they’re banned, check out this post: Cruise Lines Don’t Allow Power Strips – These are Your Alternatives

The below table is based on inside cabins, higher-grade cabins may have additional sockets.

Alternatives to Power Strips

USB Charging Stations: Charging stations do not usually include plug outlets but have multiple USB options. They are usually used to charge things like phones, tablets, and cameras. This is my personal favourite option and I’d recommend a charging station for most cruisers. They’re relatively cheap, small and work very well. 

Multi Socket Outlets: Outlet taps plug into the plug socket and are used to provide additional outlets, most of them include USB options. You may have seen either long or cube-shaped outlet taps which provide 2 or 3 extra sockets.

Outlet Adapters: Due to the different types of outlets in different countries, outlet adapters provide different types of plugs, and may contain USB options. An outlet adapter may convert a US plug socket to a UK one for example and provide extra USB sockets. An outlet adapter eliminates the need for a separate adapter which you would need if using an outlet tap or charging station. 

Power Banks: This isn’t so much of an alternative to a power strip as just another thing that you can use to keep your things charged. I’d always recommend bringing a good power bank with you on your cruise, that way you can charge multiple things from the bank and only have to charge the bank up instead of multiple other items. There are many types of power banks and I’ve tried a lot of them over the years. At the moment I am using an Anker power bank which you can find on Amazon here, unlike other banks, it hasn’t lost any capacity as I’ve been using it: Anker Power Bank*

Note: Some devices will have other names including power port, outlet extender, and wall mount but may still be used onboard as long as there is no surge protection.

Below are some examples of charging stations, outlet taps, and outlet adapters that would be allowed on cruise ships.
