on board electricity

Famous for its enormous icebergs, towering glaciers and shimmering summer light, Antarctica offers some of the planet's most awe inspiring landscapes. The North Atlantic and Arctic evoke images of sparse snow covered lands, but when summer comes it bursts with colour and life.

The outlets on board the M/S Expedition are "European style" (which, incidentally, is also the way they are in most of South America), i.e. two round prongs.

There are two power outlets in the cabin. You may want to take an adaptor (euro) and a powerboard (from your country) which would then give you plenty of supply points.

It is simply the trip of a life time. Shortly I will be visiting my 50th country since 1999 ( a lot with GAP/G btw). I love travel, the location and the people and on different levels I've enjoy them all but Antarctica is on a different level. My journal entries will give you an idea of the full program and the enjoyment of this experience but truly I can do it justice.

The G Adventure staff and experts are an amazing group of people. I loved talking to them one on one including during our meals. They were all friendly and approachable and they all have a great passion for their work. Enjoy the experience, you won't forget it.

This is assuming you're not from the US. In that case you're better off with a 220-240V power strip and then an adapter for every device.
