    I bought a plug adapter for my upcoming cruise and wanted to know if I would be able to bring it on board. It’s a 6 outlet with 2 USB A + 1 USB C

    Hiya, Kaden!

    Welcome aboard! I'm glad you're thinking about what to pack because it looks like your cruise is just over the horizon! 

    I know that being able to charge everything at the right time is very important, even when you're trying to disconnect a bit on vacation. Disney Cruise Line does prohibit most appliances and electrical items for the safety of Guests, including extension cords, power strips, multi-plugs, and surge protectors. If those items are found during the security screening they will be confiscated (and seriously delay your luggage getting to your stateroom).

    You can bring a USB charging hub if you need more USB outlets! I find these little plug-in hubs to be great for Disney trips because you can charge multiple DisneyBand+ bands, smartwatches, and phones at once. Without seeing your particular item it's hard for me to know if it's allowed, but my advice would be if it looks like a power strip to leave it at home.

    Staterooms are already equipped with USB outlets! What you might find handy is some longer charging cables, though. I also typically travel with a portable battery that can charge my phone, so sometimes I'll charge that battery during the day and then use the battery to charge my phone at night if there isn't an outlet close to where I want to keep my phone.

    While you're packing, it's a good idea to know that the voltage limit on a cruise ship might be a little different than you're used to. For example, some hair dryers might exceed the 2000W limit, so I usually leave mine at home and just use the one in the stateroom. You will also find that a clothes iron is not in your stateroom, which is also for safety reasons. If you need to iron anything you can visit one of the self-service laundry rooms on the ship to use the ironing equipment there. 

    Don't forget to keep anything you need for the first few hours of your cruise in your carry-on bag! If the weather is warm we always put our swimming suits in our carry-on so that we can enjoy the pools right after lunch if they are open. My kids LOVE starting the cruise with a splash! 

    Happy packing, Kaden! I hope you have smooth seas and a fantastic adventure.

    Keep moving forward!
