I took my own Hairdryer and diffuser as I have curly hair and I was distraught on the first morning when I plugged them in with the adapter (US Style) and there was not enough power to work I was stuck with the hair dryer in the bathroom trying to scrunch dry - I dont therefore think that there would be enough power to work striaghteners either??? but not too sur.

Hairdryers are reasonable-I'd say medium powered-and yes you can use straighteners, and you dont even need an adapter either.Go girl...I'm assuming you are a girl anyway!This is with the Princess line by the way.

I travelled on island star in june 2008. i used the hairdryer in the bathroom which was ok but got very hot to hold so i let my hair dry naturally and just finished it off with hairdryer. i took straighteners and used them no problem but u do need a us adaptor.

Boudicca gets a refit.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

My first experience of Boudicca was in December 2016 and must admit she was looking very tired and a wee bit old fashioned. This had no impact on our little mini cruise but for some passengers doing longer itineraries I must say may be a bit disappointed. Fred Olsen’s reputation is highly held within the cruise market however with so many glam glitzy new comers it is time to up your game. Prices are very good although certainly not cheap and having sailed with them the service, food an...

Oh its such a perfect day ..

By Betsy Davies

Betsy Davies's blog

It seems Royal Caribbean are not just building new ships and refurbishing existing ships but also investing in a $200 million overhaul of their private island Coco Cay. I think this is the best thing that the cruise lines have done in a while and for multi generational family holidays gets a massive thumbs up from me .The 125-acre beach hideaway will be renamed ‘Perfect Day at CocoCay ‘ It will be rolled out in phases, beginning September 2018 and the completion by November 20...
