No, and be prepared for the vibration on this ship, it is terrible.

We have sailed on the Spirit and unfortunately they do not have kettles in the cabins. Please don't think that your holiday will be spoilt by talk of vibration, I'm sure you will have a great time.. we did!!

Travel kettles come into the same catagory as travel irons. Cruise lines frown on any such items being used in the cabins as they have heating elements that could overheat and cause a fire if faulty and left unattended. Any items placed by the cruise lines themselves in cabins have to be inspected at regular intervals by qualified personnel. The item that you bring onboard would obviously escape this check. I hope you understand?

Thanks for the advice - I certainly don't want to compromise the ship's safety, so will be leaving the travel kettle at home. We'll probably make use of the room service facility,as I don't want to be flitting to the restaurant in my nightie for my early morning cuppa !

To avoid vibration book a cabin nearer the front than the back....we did use a kettle on one trip which we kept in the wardrobe when not in use!!! but it really is not necessary as there is free tea and coffee available 24 hours a day from the buffet which you can take to the cabin if necessary.....so we don't bother any more!
