It's a bit late for the original question but just for info, we took a European 2-pin adaptor and it was no good ! You will need the American style 2 flat-pin adaptor.

According to the brochure there are no hairdryers in the cabins on Island Escape only on Island Star, which I am travelling on in June. The brochure states that hairdryers are available on Island Escape for a small deposit subject to availability.

There were no hairdryers in the cabins on the Island Escape when we stayed on her, also, you are not supposed to use your own as the electricity supply in the cabin wouldn't take the amperage.

Unfortunately no hairdryers supplied in cabins and not to use your own. When are you travelling as we are also going in Jun.

We will be there from 5th-12th! Incidentally, we travelled on Escape before and husband reminded me that I did use a small travel hairdryer dual voltage with a European plug I think it was. Also read a review elsewhere and writer had done the same. Can only see in booklet not to bring irons. Let us know if you would like to meet up for a drink onboard.

Silversea was not meant to be!

By Barbara Hopley

On Monday 22 May I was booked to go on a ship visit of the ‘Silver Whisper’ by Silversea Cruises. We get invited to see ships all the time but do them on our days off as too busy to take time out of a working week. That’s how dedicated I am to see as many ships as possible as so much easier to sell when you have seen them.I had been looking forward to seeing this ship as have never seen a Silversea ship, it had been booked for a few weeks and I made my arrangements at home ...

I’ve done a couple of cruises now that visit Le Havre but on both occasions, I chose to stay on the ship and enjoy the facilities there.

Here is what I missed and what you could do when visiting this lovely French Town.A Taste Of Normandy Unlike the rest of France Normandy is blanketed in apple orchards instead of vineyards. For centuries these apples have been used to make a bubbly fermented cider and distilling that cid...

Her Majesty and I have more in...

By Hannah Wilson

Hannah Wilson's blog

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...
