They normally work of a low voltage a bit like laptops so can't see any reason why they should be a problem.

I took my DVD player last year and left in full view in cabin. Also had charger for phone & MP3 player and all used without comment from any staff.

I think it is best from a fire safety viewpoint, not to leave anything plugged in and charging while you are out of the cabin. Charge things overnight.

I didn't suggest they should all be lined up overloading the circuit!! I'm sure cruise companies know that we take our own entertainment with us with so much portable technology around these days and it's a great way to relax. As a responsible adult, the point I was making was that I left all my gadgets out on view with chargers visible as well and I'm sure the attendant would have mentioned something if he had been concerned.

Sorry, didn't mean to suggest you yourself did anything wrong. I was just making a general point.

Just to add... I took my portable DVD on Brilliance, last week, no problem, BUT there are NO plugs or scart sockets on TVs in cabin, so it can not be plugged into the Cabin TV.

Hi, portable DVD players are not a problem. My 5yr old son has taken his on our last 3 cruises, Princess Cruises, Princess Cruises, and Royal Caribbean (Freedom of the Seas). We find he can sit back and watch his favorite films while get ourselves ready for our evening meal. But as someone else has pointed out, the DVD could not be plugged into the TV on Royal Caribbean but could on Princess. Hope you enjoy your cruise.

DVD players use very litle electricity so should be no prob. Just plug into one of the power sockets in your cabin. Ditto camera/ laptop/ phone. But before you go check the voltage of sockets and the type, 2 pin or 3. I always carry a range of socket adapters.

Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
