Default North American in 50Hz/220v world

I intend to travel from my North American home to various parts of the world the wall power requires plug adapters. I'm not especially concerned about voltage conversion since most of the chargers and power supplies accept 110/220 volts, 50/60 cycles. What do experienced travelers do to simultaneously plug in a laptop, a AA battery charger, a camera battery charger, adapter for an external drive, an adapter for an Epson P2000, etc.? The problem arises for me on board a ship, where there aren't a lot of power outlets to begin with and the cabin is shared with another photographer.

I've considered a power strip with North American outlets and a plug adapter, but I can't find a strip rated for 220 volts. I considered a foreign power strip and a bunch of plug adapters, but this sounds ugly, bulky, and somewhat unreliable.

I'd like to hear solutions.
