I have a friend that has sailed on this ship before. There is one outlet 
in your cabin for 120v ac power. If you are going to bring a power 
strip, the ship rules state that it CANNOT be a surge protector. They 
can only be a dumb power strip. If you do bring a surge protector, they 
will confiscate it and return it to you at the end of the cruise.

I found one on amazon made by Belkin that has a 5 foot cord for about $8.


I am not endorsing this product, I am only letting you know what I found 
and am taking. It comes with a cardboard band around it and I am leaving 
that on so that they can see that it is not a surge protector. You can 
probably pick something up at your favorite discount wholesale club or 
super store.
