We're traveling on the Sound of Music in May from Amsterdam to Budapest. I can't find any information about the type of electrical plug adapter needed (I know we need a converter from 220 to 110). Any information would be appreciated.

I saw online that this ship is equipped with both 110 and 220 volt outlets in the rooms, so you should not need a voltage transformer.  I could not find what kind of plugs are available, but I would think if 110 volt outlets are there they are USA type.  The other, 220 volt outlets will almost assuredly be the standard European type.   I would take bot the "skinny" 2 pin plug and the "fat" two pin plug if you want to use the 220 volt outlets.

Remember, most modern appliances that you may be taking  such as camera, computer, tablet, mobile phone etc. are almost always dual voltage these days.  Check your individual items for dual voltage capability.  This will always be shown on the device charger.

The item that may not be dual voltage would be a curling iron.  Do NOT try to use a 110 Volt USA model hair dryer, even in the 110 volt outlets on the ship.  I am sure the boat will be putting out 50 cycle power even on the 110 volt outlets.  Your hair dryer would run 16% too slow, and I guarantee it will overheat and shut down, and may be damaged.  Use the dryer in the room, and if one is not there ask at the desk for one.
