Do I need adapeters for Magestic Princess cruise, Auckland, NZ to Sydney, Australia

Recommended Posts

We will be traveling on land and a cruise ( Magestic Princess) through New Zealand and Australia, looking for guidance in purchasing adapters and or converters that we may need, mostly phones, tablets, laptops but also a curling iron.  The iron has has 120/240 on the iron itself, so I think voltage wise I am ok, but I am curious about the plug itself.  Any info/help would be greatly appreciated!

thanks in advance for your help

These were the sockets on Majestic Princess. There were also a couple of separate USB charging ports.

For most phones, tablets, laptops, the power packs are 110/240v. So there should only be the need for that adaptor for the plug in.

 

As always, read the labels on the power packs to make sure.

There is also a single Australasian/Chinese mainland power point, angled three pin as in post #4.  The Majestic was fitted out for the Chinese market so has a common Asian / Pacific power point as used here and some Asian countries.

There were two power plates, the one you showed and another containing the 'local' power point.  It was the only one I used as I had to frequently charge my scooter battery.  All cabins would have had the Asian/Pacific power point as well as the American as the ship was built for the Chinese market.

I stand corrected - checked my photos again and here it is (the earlier one is at the desk and this one above the refrigerator
