Guys -- there have been multiple posts suggesting taking power strips on board older Carnival ships. I attempted to take a power strip on the Pride last week (in Baltimore) and had my power strip confiscated. The security guard asked me if it had more than three prongs - I asked her if she meant outlets since all outlets have three prongs -- she immediately became annoyed and took the power strip. She was willing to let me have my power strip back at the end of the cruise if I completed a form (about 10 minutes). It would be available in Baltimore once we left the ship. On our last day on board information about leaving the ship was provided included how to retrieve confiscated items - those items would be available in a lounge early in the AM. Upon arriving in the lounge, no one was there. While waiting to leave the ship, I went to customer services and after a search the staffer found my power strip. My advice is to ignore the suggestions to bring power strips on board Carnival ships.
