I was about to ask the same question. I'm on Golden Deck. What plugs please. Also, will my hair straighteners work? Thanks.

From what I remember there are sockets for both UK and continental plugs. The voltage is reduced to 110/120 so although you can plug in a UK plug the item will work much slower unless they are multi voltage.

Hi all,

Most ships use the 110_120 system, with English three pin sockets only in a selected few cabins.
They also do not like you to use any electical item that has not got a fully thermostatically controlled cut-out. This is in all T&C. and for fire regulations.

Therefore your best bet is to buy and use a multi-adaptor, which will allow you to use all European, US and any other socket outlet. these have built in cut-outs.

Purchase from Airports, Supermarkets, Boots, AA shops or travel agents. cost last time I looked under ten pounds.

Hi All Can anybody help me about a percentage that is added on to your bill at end of cruise towards tips. I am on a tight budget and when I heard something about this I was quite surprised. Obviously I would tip my cabin crew or anyone else who I thought deserved it. If anyone can answer this I would be grateful> How much approx do they add on ???? Thanks

Hi Barbj1,

As the Escape is now part on the Thomson Group I would think the same policy applies which is all tips are included.

To quote Thomsons Web Site for the Island Escape for September this year


Tipping the Waiters
No, we've included all tips in the cost of your holiday. However, if you have received exceptional service you are welcome to give something extra.

Take a look yourself, by going to Thomsons Cruises, selecting the Escape for Sept then read what is included.

Hope this helps, only other thing is to ask customer services.
