Decorating your door...

So, for those of you that have decorated your door on other cruises...do you find that your magnets get taken? Do you stick to personalized magnets only or do you use generic? I am working on some for our door and this is our first cruise...now I'm worried they'll walk off!!

Wouldn't Worry

As with anything that is not bolted down, there is a chance that magnets door decorations will disappear. There are chuckleheads everywhere that need to entertain themselves with mischief. That being said, I think most DISers would tell you that rarely do door decorations go missing. We had a ton of tempting/unusual stuff on our door for a 4 day Bahamas cruise on the Wonder and finished the cruise unscathed. We made our own decorations and attached them to the magnetic tape/sheets you can get at a crafts store. Hope this helps and happy cruising!

We have been on seven cruises and have never had a problem. Most of our magnets do have our name on them, but I agree, that there will always be some chuckleheads out there.

I suppose there is always somebody who wants a laugh, but on our last cruise by the time we went home we had so many magnets/decorations on our door that we wouldn't have noticed if 1 walked off. i think we found extra though

My advice is if there is anything that is absolutely a "Must Keep" then leave it off the door and wait for the fridge at home. But we didn't have anything like that on our door.

We have never had any go missing and we have a variety of named and unamed. However, on our B2B Med cruise we collected magnets from each port and I did decorate the INSIDE of our door with those as I would have been upset if they had gone missing so if you have any extra special ones you can still decorate your door with them - just on the inside!

Last cruise we were on Deck 1 (where I thought it would be quiet)...I'm not sure if any walked off but we did have a few pranks such as waking up one morning to find all of our magnets on the door across the hall from us. For our FE someone had made name magnets but the letters were all individual and sometimes we'd find words that were no longer our names spelled out.

On 4 cruises with DCL we have never had a problem with anyone moving or taking our many door magnets.

I hope that helps.

Only have experience with 1 previous cruise on the Wonder--we decorated our door but I labeled the back of each magnet with our room number. A couple of magnets were moved to an adjacent door 1 night (it was a 4 night cruise) but nothing went missing. We were on Deck 2 midship.

I am planning to decorate our door again when we cruise to Alaska...having fun with the new destination!

We have both personalized and non-personalized magnets on our door. We did not have any problems with any of our disappearing or being moved to other doors. I know I have read reports on here of that happening, but it does seem more often than not that they generally are left alone.
