Solution for overdoor shoe bag on Dream & Fantasy

We sailed on the Dream & found that the shoe bag holder didn't fit over the bathroom door because the doors are thicker than the ones on the Wonder & Magic. This year we sailed on the Fantasy and I had an aha moment. We had a connecting room door. I unlocked and opened it and it is thinner than the bathroom doors. I hung the bag holder over the door, closed the door & locked it. It was a perfect fit & the bag was out of the way.

Hope this hint helps all the others who miss using the shoe bags on the Dream & Fantasy. Another idea I had before I discovered this was using those 3M command hooks on the bathroom or even the room door.

Haven't been on the Fantasy YET (this sat!!!) but on the Magic/Wonder they had a peg for hanging items by the bathroom door, in the room. I got a shoe holder that had a hanger style hook & hung it on there. Maybe The Fantasy/Dream have one as well.

We had a navigator's verandah cabin and the first bathroom section (w/the toilet) had two pegs on the wall. We hung our shoe holder from them. Not ideal, but it worked for us.

My bag wouldn't have worked on the pegs. The holes are only big enough for the hooks that came with it and there is no hanger other than the hooks for it.

We didn't have a problem hanging the OTD shoe holder on the bathroom door on the Fantasy's MV. Maybe the hooks that came with ours are bigger???

We have been on the Dream twice and the Fantasy once and never had an issue with our shoe holder fitting over the door. Our metal hooks were pretty wide though.

I remember a post the year of Dream's maiden voyage about people having problems & since I had the same problem I figured I would post this. Maybe some over the door hooks are deeper than mine, but mine didn't work on the bathroom doors. Since the doors between rooms are thinner they did work.

I think you are right and you point out a great suggestion. For someone who hasn't purchased an over the door shoe bag yet and plans to do so, it may help to look for large hooks.

Thank you for pointing out there are different versions.

Bring some zip ties to use as hanging loops?

I just put the shoe holder on the inside of the closet door last week on the Fantasy. That worked too!

I tried that first on the Fantasy, but my pockets were too wide for the door.
