We can't find any American adapters. We have European round pinned plugs. I want to take my laptop, not only for checking emails, (there is wifi on Brilliance of the Seas) but also for storing the photos and videos I'll be taking, and re-charging our ipods (got some audio books to enjoy).

Will I be able to get the right adapter on the ship does anyone know?

Going next Sunday so haven't a lot of time.

Hi,

some ships have the north american standard and the 220 volts from Europe. Probably the ships cruising around in Europe have both. Isn't Royal Carribean able to tell you ? We bought an adaper at Media Markt and you should have one in Spain too.

Take care and have fun on the ship,
Heike

As stated on the RCI website: "...North American standard, 110 volts AC is used on all of our ships. Outlet adapter is required for European standard. European standard (220 volts AC, round prongs). Stateroom outlets can accommodate appliances up to 1500 watts..."

A travel store or place that specializes in luggage ought to have adapters. I wouldn't be surprised to see them offered for sale on the ship though, as it is no doubt a popular item for European cruises and would likely have lots of passengers needing them.

I will say that on many ships I have seen one 220V outlet in the cabins which is the voltage used for the vacuum cleaners.
