I just skimmed through this thread - so sorry if this was already posted . . .

We bring magnet hooks that we have on the inside of our stateroom door. Each person has their own hook and each time they come in the room they hang their lanyard/dry box/sunglasses onto their hook so that when they head out again - everything is right there ready to grab and go!

When we checked in for our last cruise we asked for a blank "key card" - we kept this in the top drawer by the closet (along with a bag of small bills for roomservice) - we used the blank card to control the lights/tv so that no one had to head out and forget their key was in the light switch. (any card will actually work - we just liked having the blank one)

Just a question please re the over the door show organizer ( love this idea ) do the attachments for over the door fit on the door to the room or only on the doors internally? Also we have an accessible room as I am disabled so wondering if its suitable for a sliding door ( accessible rooms have sliding bathroom doors mostly in resorts )

Hi Paula, not sure if I can answer your question entirely, but maybe I can share enough info and ideas, and others can chime in and fill in the blanks.

My over-the-door shoe organizer hangs by hooks. Like these: first pic (this is the kind I have) & second pic and the shower organizer hangs by a rod with hook ends.

You have to put the hooks in to hang it, so instead of using the over-the-door hooks that are supplied, you might be able to use these suction hooks or these 3M Command hooks with these strips. We use the suction hooks in the shower with the shower organizer.

I don't know if these ideas would work with the surface of the doors you speak of, or the way the doors travel. If the surface is too rough, suction definitely won't work. If the doors are pocket doors (which I doubt they are, but I am unfamiliar with them), then a door organizer of any kind won't work.

If the hooks will work, you could hang the shoe organizer as high as you can reach and cut the excess off of the bottom.

Hopefully this post makes sense (it's early ).

Hi

How incredibly helpful you are thank you so much for taking the time to post that. I had not considered replacing the over the door hooks what a good idea! I could play around with the ideas at home to see which one would work best. I would not be able to reach the top pockets because of my disability but DW can have those! I just thought like the OP have posted re thier younger children same could apply to me. I will just use the lower pockets! Thank you! We typically stay at SSR for 2 weeks as we come from the UK and try to maximise the flight cost and time usually taking in a 3/4 day cruise so lots of luggage and organisation needed!

Yes me too! I love the packing cubes idea. Got to get me some of those. I do a vacation brochure each year (sad) with accomodation, flight , car etc ref numbers, pictures of resort and things to do. A day by day list of adrs and activities.. Useful numbers etc.

Takes me ages but its part of the vacation for me. When its complete ( I do it as a booklet in publisher ) my partner prints it off at work and binds it for us. Lol people think it is a professional production it gets more complex each year....last year I added an index what ever next lol...

I love it! Makes my elaborate spreadsheets with ADRs, EMH and Recommended Parks, look completely amateurish!

I think the newest comic book superhero should be "Captain OCD" ( "Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder". Don't know if you call it the same in the UK). Now that is a superhero I can relate to!!
