No, she is American! The RCI site states:
Q: What electrical voltage is offered onboard?
A: North American standard, 110 volts AC is used on all of our ships. Outlet adapter is required for European standard. European standard (220 volts AC, round prongs).
Stateroom outlets can accommodate appliances up to 1500 watts.
Further to that answer, it may seem obvious, but make sure that your appliance has the capacity to work/be charged up on the US voltage.
We were on the Independence last December and it is, as above, an American ship.
I just wanted to add two things, firstly take comfortable shows! Independence is HUGE and one can literally walk several miles a day. This is OK in trainers, but in high-heeld evening shoes, not so comfortable!
Secondly, ensure you take a ticket for the ice show. We went along being very sceptical, but this was simply outstanding. Amazing! (I think we enjoyed it!).
Enjoy your cruis.
Sorry "Jones,Pinner" but you have made an error in the name of the ship...as the Independence hasnt actually sailed yet.Her first sailing is 17th MAY 08.I am guessing you meant the Freedom or the Liberty which are IND sister ships.
It may not help but we were on board Navigator of the Seas in April and there were three pin sockets at the vanity unit as well as the American ones perhaps it was because of the Southampton sailings which followed after our cruis.
RCI Independence of the Seas has not finished completion yet! Please ignore previous comment from miss informed member, but it will have 110 volt US plugs - you will need an adaptor. Easily available. Your electrical items will take longer to charge and will not have the same power outpu.
