Hiya your not allowed but you could allways get room service tea to your cabin every morning or go to 24hr dinning in beachcomber bring it back to cabin .or ive read on here before you can take flask in your case .i took my on first cruise on escape then never took again .husband use to go and bring cuppa back for me .have lovley cruise hope been helpfull .
It is a cruise ship not a caravan - call room service and get your cuppa delivered...you are on holiday for flip's sake......
Another point to consider is that the water in the bathrooms in the cabin (whilst safe for drinking in an emergency) will not taste very good. Neither will bottled water when boiled. The tea making facilities in the restaurants boil the water to a higher temperature than a travel kettle will allow and so tea tastes something like tea. However I have yet to have a really good cup of either tea or coffee on a cruise - that UHT milk might be something to do with it.
The reason cruise lines ban kettles is due to fire risk. When cruise lines do provide kettles in cabins they are designed for the job, & not something out of Littlewoods Catalogue. So enjoy your tea as you put the safety of everyone onboard at risk, when all it really needed was to walk to the cafeteria, pick up a cuppa in far less time than your ‘wonder kettle’ would boil………Wilba.
As Mr/Ms Aldrich says, get room service to deliver your morning tea if that's your thing. Personally I can't wait to get on deck in the morning and have my tea watching the world go by.
Travel irons and kettles are not allowed in cabins due to fire risk, and will be confiscated, all bags are security ex-rayed before being loaded onto the ship, you can take ipod/camera/phone chargers etc but are asked to not leave them unattended in the socket as they can get hot! Fire is the no 1 top risk to a ship at sea, hope this helps.
Thanks everyone - that's a great help. You are probably right, why would I want to spend any more time in my cabin than necessary. It's just that I've never cruised before and I don't want to take anything that I can't use.
Think you should have booked Ocean Village- ALL cabins have kettles, lots of tea, coffee, chocolate and biscuits!
