Travelled on Island Star August 4th for 1 week - absolutely fantastic.I would recommend taking a dryer as the one in the cabin was really not too powerful and took ages to dry hair.Had problems with the voltage charging up batteries and using hair straighteners. The plug adapters we took that we use all over Europe were no good. Ours had the two rounded pins and we needed the flattish pin type. These were available from the on board shop at £2.99 and all was fine once we were sorted. Hope you enjoy the cruise.

My grandaughter could not use her straightners and we could not even use a night light. You had to get your phone charged at reception. There was a hairdryer just as well as there were no sockets in the cabin to use your own one. The only socket was in the bathroom and nothing worked in it except for the hairdryer provide.

Hi, Yes there is a hairdryer in all cabins on the Island Star. However, the hairdryer is not the best. You have to keep your finger on the button and it does get very hot if its on for a while. I have long hair which takes quite a long time to dry but I did manage. Your hot brush will work, it just wont heat up as hot as it would in England because of the voltage on the ship. Hope this helps and enjoy your cruise.
