The cabins have both North American (110 volt),  and European 2 pin (220volt) outlets. Power bars aren't allowed anymore. However there are multi outlet blocks ( NOT surge protected)that you can buy that can service 3-4 items at once,  and others with multiple USB ports.

Most electronic items you're likely to bring onboard will work properly on 110 volts or 220 volts, if you have an appropriate plug adapter. A power adapter shouldn't be necessary.

Most but not all.  Most rechargeable devices like a phone, laptop, tablet will accommodate dual voltage.  An exception is a Braun electric toothbrush. Their charges are one voltage only.

 

Be cautious about plug-in devices such as hair dryers, curling irons, shavers, etc.  Unless they have a dual voltage switch in the correct position or are using a power adapter you may be rewarded with a snap, crackle and pop if a 110 volt device is plugged into a 220.  You will then have to find alternative means to dry/curl your hair and shave.

Make sure any cord does not have a surge protector. They are not compatible with the wiring on a cruise ship. Circuit breakers are OK. There are many on Amazon that indicate they can be used on a ship.

Royal Carib bans ALL extension cords/power strips now.

 

It seems they got tired of checking and arguing about surge suppression.
