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.

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!
