Power converters for onboard cruise

Jump to last reply

We are travelling on Celebrity Silhouette around the Adriatic and Mediterranean in Sep/Oct. The tour brochure says (under "Voltage/Adapters") "the onboard voltage is 110/220 AC...please ensure you bring any necessary US or European adapters."

This is not very helpful, as all adapters that I've seen retailed talk in terms of country or region, not voltage. We are from NZ where 230v is used, and our main power usage will be for recharging a camera, mobile phones, and an iPad or android tablet. My researches show that Europe also uses 230v, whereas USA uses 120v. I assume we'll need adaptors because of different pin configurations on the plugs, but for what country/region - Europe or USA? Will we need power converters as well, for the differences in voltage?
