Electric Fans

I will be cruising for the first time. I have heard that cabins can be warm. Can  I bring a small electric fan with me?

Best check with your TA or the cruise's web page - most don't allow electric appliances (most forbid irons and the like).

 

What cruise line?

 

Carnival 

Thank you! There is an exemption for fans. Happy

Calling your TA isn't the best thing to do because they may or may not know that cruise lines rules and take it from me, calling the cruise line TA isn't the best thing either. I'm dealing with an issue now and I called Carnival and got 3 different answers.

 I don't know the type of cabin you are in but you'll be lucky if you have an outlet where you need your fan.  I would also look at extention cords for what is acceptable what isn't.

OH... I would also ask your steward if they have a fan. You may get lucky and they'll have one!  Big Smile

 

I suggest calling the cruise line directly.  Most do not want you to use electrical appliances such as fans. On cabin crawls,  I have seen small fans in use in inside cabins on ships, though.  Don't know if passengers brought them on board or they were supplied by the ship. In any case, stewards are told to confiscate them if they see them so be careful not to leave them out in full view when you leave the cabin.   This applies to irons also.

CONGRATULATIONS   DOOIES MOM !!!!!!!!

 

youve made 3 posts. You are now qualified to be named Captain. You will soon be receiving a hand held battery operated fan that will surely keep you cool as you sleep.  You will need batteries though.
