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.

The Independence gets some jaz...

By Julia Rhodes

Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas has always been a firm family favourite sailing out of Southampton with something to offer everyone who sails on her. So much so she was even voted the best ship sailing out of Southampton!She entered service in April 2008 so is coming up to 10 years old – wow! I sailed on her back in 2012 and thought she was an amazing ship, although she was looking a little tired even back then. So it is no surprise to hear that she is getting a multi-m...

Gratuities When is enough, enough?

By Chris Halford

Chris Halford's blog

Last month I wrote my reasons for not pre-paying my gratuities (You can read that here), but cruise lines are giving more and more reasons not to even pay them at all! Since I wrote this blog P&O have announced a rise in gratuities for all sailings after 23rd March 2018 and people arent happy!Despite this rise, they still have some of the cheapest gratuities at sea, however the problem is most P&Os customers are British and we dont like tipping. Not only this but they have risen signi...

Norwegian Fjords

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

I have never been to the Norwegian Fjords but we have just booked a little break on the Fred Olsen Balmoral for May. It is just a short 5 night sailing but as Charlie has a half day at school every Friday and then the Monday & Tuesday are inset days we thought we would get away.This will be our first time visiting the Fjords and our first time with Fred Olsen. This will be completely different to our last cruise in December on Allure of the Seas and I dont think Charlie realises how small...
