You will need to take an adaptor onboard as the plugs are 2 way pin.

Hello.....Emerald Princess is one of their newer ships but the in-cabin voltage is 110 volts so I am assuming that a British 3 pin (I take it that's what you meant) plug will have to have an adaptor and more crucially be able to run on 110 volts, that you can see on your straightens or with the instructions. I always take a bag full of differing adaptors for the camera, mobile and video battery charging, all of which can be done on the lower voltage. Someone may correct me but the only way to be absolutely certain is to ring Princess.....Heathe.

No - pretty sure they don't. I travelled on Crown last year, which is exact layout of Emerald and they had the American style plugs. Besides, I took my straighteners last year and they didn't work. The ships don't provide enough amps/voltage, whatever! in the cabins. It was a bloody nuisance as my hair is 'kinky' and in the heat of the caribbean it made it worse. This year I'm taking cordless straighteners (Braun) with an energy cell. You can take them on flights as long as they are in your hold luggage and the cell is secure inside the electrical device. You cannot take extra cells with you. Hope that helps. PS: You'll love your cruise. I'm off on sea princess on 22nd March 2008.

Don't bother taking them! The plug sockets are 2 pin, American style and the cabins do not give out enough power for straighteners. I took mine aboard Crown Princess (identical ship) last March and even on the lowest setting they wouldn't work. Take cordless straighteners instead. I'm going on sea princess on 22nd March 2008 and I found out that cordless straighteners can be put in your main luggage providing the energy cell is secure within the electronic device. However, spares cannot be taken with you. If not, suggest tie hair up or make appointment at the hairdressers. I had my hair put up one night - cost equivalent of about £25.

My wife and I have cruised on Crown Princess (same layout). All power sockets are USA 110V 2 pin. Before we went, my wife bought new straighteners from BOOTS that were dual voltage and then we used a UK to USA adaptor.

We travelled on the Emerald Easter 08 and my daughter took her GHD straighteners and they worked fine. We took various sockets just to be sure. USA 2 pin sockets if a remember.
