Scotty, I Need (adapters needed on board) More Power, So Hook Me Up !

I'm making up a 50 ft. Shore Power Cable today. My Shore Power Outlet is -- 30 Amps, 125 Volts, 3 Prong, Twist Lock.

I see in my Reading that a number of-- Power Voltage/ Amp is (125/ 250 Volts., 20/ 30/ 50/ 70 amps <<>> are offered at the different marina's.

Since, I'm >> 125 V., 30 A. 3 lug << I need to make up or buy (1 or 2) adapters to change over to 30 A. to 50 A. 3 Prong or 4 prong at the different marinas.

Does that sound right, I'll need to buy one or two adapter(s) to connect my 125 V./ 30 A. cable ?

What other marina power (not USA Type) outlets would I run into in the Bahamas or Virgin Islands ? I assume that they are mostly USA type outlets but don't know for sure.
