  • Plugs on board container vessels

    Hi there!

    New to the forum but been reading bits and pieces from here for a while now. Bit about myself, I'm Australian and just about to start a deck officer cadetship with CMA CGM which I'm very excited about.

    Quick question which I haven't come across an answer for yet, what type (region) power plugs do CMA CGM/other lines use on board their vessels? I'm guessing it's European? Thanks for your help!

      Why not share here so anyone else going to a CMA CGM ship will know?!

        Fair. Plugs are European in my experience but I personally always take other adaptors for going ashore with laptop etc.

          Hello!

          CMA CGM vessels have a European plugs as Bridgemokey stated. However, to be certain to avoid any mishaps, I suggest you purchase one of these:

          That way, you can use any socket/plug ... well apart from a reefer.

          I shall make the assumption that you are just about to start your sea phase. If you give me a PM with the name of your ship - assuming you have it - I could let you know about any of the cadets in my year who could be on it. Then again, maybe you are yet to get your ship.

            Aren't European plugs the norm. The only ship I've ever seen was a Cal Mac ferry (uk plugs)

              Thanks so much for the speedy replies chaps. Will be sure to take a universal adapter then!

                Well the princess cruise ships and the p&o badged ones have usa and european sockets 115v and 230v in crew cabins but mots electronic products are dual voltage these days so no problem.
