A Power adaptor

It the last few years the amount of gadgets and tech items where carrying with us is getting out of hand. The moment you step in your cabin its almost certainly going to be the first thing you look for. And that is, a socket to charge up your phone, tablet, laptop or even a travel torch.

In this article we look over 5 different type that will come in very handy once your ready to charge up.

First things first lets see what the exact policy is according to the Carnival web site. The link to the specific page can be found HERE.


the key sentence here is this:

Power strips, multi plug box outlets/adaptors and extension cords (without surge protectors) are allowed on board when used with proper caution
