I was on the Island Star in Sept 08 where you have to use US plugs adapters (flat two pin), so I feel quite confident that they are going to work on the IOS when I go next year. My GHD's worked absolutely fine. I have the GHD Model 4.0 B which state that they are 110-230 Vac, so check on the side of your GHD's to see which model you have and their voltage. Hope this helps....

Hi I went on the Island Princess this year and took my GHD straighters, they are 220-240v 50Hz 30W (whatever the latter is).I took an american adaptor and they did not work.My mobile worked so beware. Maybe my GHD were too powerful, hope this helps? Have a good trip!

Although in reality it is not really totally river cruising as the ships have been sailing from a UK port – Dover or Southampton.German Waterways sails ...

They are all Cruise Ship Godmothers!Every time a new ship is set to launch we still love to guess who will be chosen, Godmothers lists are like reading through ‘Who’s Who’ list for the Rich and Famous (and also not so famous)It is a tradition to have a famous name to christen and bless a new ship and become the Godmother (not so many have Godfathers…)A ship Godmother by tradition is a well known face chosen to name the ship to bestow good luck and divine protection ove...

Friendliest Countries in the World

By Zara Kelly

Zara Kelly's blog

The inspiration for this blog comes from some clients who are travelling to Sri Lanka on holiday this year. I visited the pearl in the Indian Ocean a few years ago, and was blown away by how friendly the country is happy to chat to strangers about spices through to cricket, a passion there!I think speaking to locals give you a real insight into the destination.
