    I've done the martini class a couple times on the Oasis of the Seas. Every martini was fabulous. I had several more thereafter. ūüôā

    American style outlets in a grand suite on Allure: 2 at the vanity mirror, 1 at the coffee maker, 1 under the bed at the phone jack and one behind the lamp next to the sliding glass door. There might be others but that's what we found.

    I already bought one haha.  I saw Twangster post it and I bought one on Amazon that day because it is a very good idea.

    This is an excellent tip....just remember (those who may be considering it) that your device must be dual power and be compatible with the European currents.  Using a US-only device in a European outlet is an easy way to burn up your hairdryer (or whatever else you have plugged in there).  Most cell phones/computers are already dual voltage so that's a good thing - just be sure before you plug it in.

    I will have to do some work while on the cruise. It's no big deal daughter will at at the kiddies water park and I can sit on a lounger and work on reports.

    We have a short extension cord with 3 outlets and 3 USB ports. Never had a problem with it in our carry on. Ships are starting to put in USB ports in the cabins now. The trick is to find them. ūüôā¬†

    I have a small digital alarm clock that has 3 usb ports on it, think I found it at a dollar store or Walmart.    We take it on cruises.  Everything we have is chargeable with a USB plug and the clock only takes up one 110v plug in the room.  Never had a problem.

    No, they will be confiscated when you board the ship when you go through the security check point if you have any in your carry on bags. If you put them in your suitcase, they will be seen when the bags are xrayed and confiscated. Power strips are considered to be a fire hazard.

    Swapping names is quite simple and your travel agent can handle that for you, so from a booking perspective, that's easy.
    I wouldn't overlook option 1. Going solo (albeit with your family) is not that bad.  There's so much going on during a cruise that I believe you can still have a great time cruising solo. Here are the top 10 tips for cruising solo: https://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/2018/01/12/top-10-tips-going-royal-caribbean-cruise-solo

    @Vanessa77  I'm not here to tell you what you should do but I do know you an easily place someone in his spot. My cruise a few years ago was because my friend and her husband got a divorce and they already booked. All she did is call her travel agent and then I called and we switched the reservation.
    (and you're not a third wheel when you're with family!)

    Thanks everyone, I have purchased in my cruise planner.  I will be dressing up but hubby will not.  I like 1920's style so I'm excited for it.

    Another thing about needing plugs and not understanding people who use electronics is that everyone's idea of a great vacation is different. I personally love to read with my kindle by the pool or listen to a podcast with bluetooth headphones while relaxing. I also enjoy the ability to share my vacation in real time with friends and family. All of these things need charging and it's amazing how quickly the plugs get full, especially once you factor in cabin mates. I understand that some people enjoy disconnecting or using very few electronics on a cruise but it's a pet peeve of mine when someone uses their personal preference to look down upon other's choices in how they choose to spend their vacation. I'm not saying anyone here is doing that, but I HAVE seen that condescension elsewhere and it's incredibly uncalled for, in my opinion.

    People use their phones as their camera and bring more cameras like Go Pros for underwater or other active excursions or a DSLR or mirrorless camera for better photography.
    Any one with medical equipment lose an outlet to it.  If both adults had CPAP machines there are no outlets left.  A toothbrush charger consumes an outlet.  
    There are lots of ways to consume your available outlets.
