Cruise Ship Power Outlet

My wife and I are gong on an Alaskan cruise soon. The last couple of times that I was on a cruise ship, this seemed to be the most common power outlet. Does anybody happen to know if that is still pretty much the current, common standard on most cruise ships these days?

I also have a 6 USB port charger that states the input is AC 100-240V/ 50-60Hz, so if the plug fits, I am good to go, right?

I bought an adapter plug from REI. It might be Type C or Type F, but maybe it doesn't matter. Also, assuming that the ship has the above type and it will accept either Type C or Type F.

Just returned from an Alaskan cruise, only US style outlets in the room. Princess lines, Ruby Princess.

I have been all over, mainly only US style ports that I have encountered.
Otherwise the cabin crew carry adapters for the guests that didn't come prepared

More of a general answer for future travel questions, but unless the stuff you’re plugging in is more than about 10 or 15 years old (conservatively), you are going to have a hard time finding something that isn’t rated for 100-240/50-60. This is from a guy who has blown up more than his share of TVs/VCRs/shavers etc all over the world. All of that was in the 80’s and 90’s. I don’t even check these days, just plug it in and I haven’t blown anything up in probably a decade, and that was something I bought in China. On a US cruise, almost zero threat. The biggest obstacle is what kind of plug it is, which sounds like you have covered, or else they’ll have adapters on the boat.
