I held him up sometimes, and he stood on the toilet lid and leaned oooooverrrr sometimes. That was precarious and scary! All week I kept wishing I had our step stool, and I couldn't think of anything we had in the room for him to stand on.
When our DD was little, we let her use the hassock from the desk. It's a little tall, but she could hang on to the edge of the sink & see her self in the mirror (what can I say, she's a gemini). I stayed with her to make sure she didn't fall, but it worked great.

adding a note to this list:

we discovered that the metal trashcan, turned upside down, makes a killer 'step-stool' for the bathroom for our barely-over-3-ft DD.
Yes, you have to keep your room trash in something else (the laundry bag from the closet works fine! lol) but our room attendant figured it out quickly and we just left it in front of the sink for her.

I can't even thank you enough for all the helpful tips. We're going on our first cruise in a few weeks and there are a lot of things I hadn't even thought of. The nightlight is a great idea. I travel for work all the time and you'd think I'd have one for dark hotel rooms but never remember one. Thanks again!

Don't let the kids lock the safe and then go off to clubs/lab - while they like being helpful doing this the problem came when hubby and I were in the stateroom and DD who closed the safe last time was in Ocean Quest with her KTTW (she is 12). Well the key used to close it must also be the one to open. Live and learn - from then on we let the kids do it but they had to use one of our keys.
