Outlet Details

EU Outlet: Powering UK/European/Australian Appliances

If you’re traveling from the UK, Europe or Australia and bringing appliances like hair dryers, straighteners, or curling irons, Virgin Voyages cabins provide a single EU outlet operating at 220V. This particular outlet is conveniently positioned adjacent to the mirror, great for use with most hair styling tools. If you are from the UK or Australia you will need an EU adapter.

North American Outlets

For guests with North American electronic devices or appliances, Virgin Voyages cabins provide up to four North American 110V outlets. These outlets are compatible with North American plugs, making it easy to charge your devices or use your appliances without any issues.

There are typically four US outlets in most cabins, two next to the vanity, one next to the bed, and the other is about a meter and a half away from the other side of the bed.

Note: In Rockstar suites you will also have an outlet in the bathroom for convenient use of the hair dryer.

USB-A Ports: High Speed Outlets for Devices

Virgin Voyages understands the importance of staying connected particularly with included Wi-Fi and offers six USB A ports in their cabins for device charging.

USB-A ports, including a high-speed port, are available on both sides of the bed as well as next to the vanity. One is right next to the bed, and the other is about a meter and a half away. These ports are ideal for charging smartphones, tablets, and other USB-A compatible devices.

USB-C Ports: Not Available

It’s important to note that USB-C ports are not available in Virgin Voyages cabins. If you have devices that require a USB-C connection, be sure to pack the necessary USB-C to USB-A adapters or cables.

    Do you know what they do about CPAP devices? Some have a heating element and I’ve heard they don’t allow anything that heats.

    1. Rob Sammons says:

      Hi Sally, CPAP machines are usually fine but best to speak to sailor services if you have any concerns

  2. Julie says:

    Can you take a travel steamer on board. Or travel iron

    1. Rob Sammons says:

      Hi Julie it’s suggested not to as they may confiscate, theres information here on the laundry options available including borrowing a steamer.

  3. Marykay Martin says:

    I read somewhere that the XL Sea Terrace bathrooms don’t have outlets. Is this true? I was wanting to plug in a night light with motion sensor.

    1. Rob Sammons says:

      Correct there is no outlets in the bathrooms except the Rockstar Suites

  4. JB says:

    I can’t see anything in your pictures that resemble a UK plug socket.

    1. Rob Sammons says:

      Hi JB yes you’ll need converter as stated and should use the EU plug for UK based appliances that need the higher voltage.

  5. Raymond Lumsden says:

    Thankyou very much for your photos and information, this will be used with gratitude as we will only need minimal chargers
