    Is a "travel/cruise approved" Travel Power Strip with USB Ports, 3.7ft Wrapped Around Travel Extension Cord with 2 Outlets 3 USB Ports, Flat Plug Power Strip Non Surge Protector allowed on a cruise ship? Thank you!

    Hey there, ahoy there, sailor Terri, and welcome to planDisney. Your voyage to where the sky meets the sea is so soon and getting those last-minute details purchased is important. One thing we have a hard time doing while on our Disney Cruise Line adventures is powering down especially disconnecting from the mainland. We do have Apple Watches and DisneyBand+ that need to be charged so having enough ports is very important.

    As safe as this "travel/cruise approved" power strip is, it falls into the general category of prohibited items on Disney Cruise Line. I am not saying that some Guests have not brought items like this on board but Disney's first commitment to their Guests is safety. Electrical devices that may compromise safety follow the "better safe than sorry rule" and may be confiscated. If the item in question is needed for medical reasons then please contact Guest Services before your cruise to discuss the issue.

    Disney Cruise Line staterooms come with plenty of USB charging ports and standard outlets and there is no reason you cannot bring a very long charging cable for your phone or other smart device. You may also consider a USB charging hub which is not a power strip. Typically, we set our phones on bedside tables with long charging cables and place all other devices to charge on the desk plugged into a travel adapter or USB charging hub. These universal travel adapters plug directly into an outlet and have spots for USB, USB-C, and outlets. These are not extension cords, power strips, or surge protectors as ours do not allow additional high currents through the outlet.

    planDisney Pro Tip: DisneyBand+ is the latest technology on Disney Cruise Line ships (except the Disney Wonder). If you have a MagicBand+ from either Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resorts you may use that as a DisneyBand+ by linking it to the Disney Cruise Line Navigator App.

    Terri, I see the convenience of the power strip and understand it is "travel/cruise approved" but at this time another option will be needed. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions to help make your December sailing an unforgettable time.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories on the high seas.
