Hi: Anyone go on a cruise from the U.S. and take their CPAP? I couldn't find anything posted on this. My main question is are the electrical outlets on ships standard AC ones or do you need an adapter like Europe?
To err is human, but to really mess things up, you need a computer.
You will want to contact the cruise line's special needs department to let them know you're bringing a CPAP machine. Most cruise lines will supply you a bottle of distilled water and an extension cord. Electrical outlets are scarce on a cruise ship, but most ships have both American and European outlets.
I'll PM you a link to another board where CPAP on a cruise ship has been discussed at great length.
I have not been on cruise with CPAP but contact your cruise liner and they be able to tell you
Just reminder, make sure to pack spare mask, hose, filter, etc ... and an extension cord
Maybe surge protector too
Enjoy your cruise
