Question Good replacement for over the door shoe organizer?

Now that DCL discourages the use of over the door shoe organizers which were always handy to keep small things handy, has anyone found a good replacement that won't damage the cabin doors? I tried magnetic hooks to hold the shoe organizer up, but it was too heavy and slid down.

Thanks for any suggestions!

We're cruising in three weeks, and I got a velvet covered clothes hanger and zip tied the shoe organizer to the bottom of the hanger so it can hang up in the closet or on a robe hook instead.

Thanks for the suggestion! Having it outside of the closet would be more convenient for us, but we may make it work.

Glad I saw this. I was going to do magnets. Any other suggestions?

someone recently posted that they put wooden dowell thru the top and tied it with some ribbons and I think they said they also used ribbon to hang it on hook on the bathroom door. hope I explained it right, I am going to try it.

My husband and I cruised on the Magic three weeks ago. He hung the over the door shoe organizer on the outside of the shower curtain using the same hooks that the shower curtain hangs from. It worked great. I think I liked the location more than I would have on the back of the door.

We did this also...worked very well for us! Good luck on whatever you choose... adding them onto the hangers sounds like a cute idea as well!

I have put some old lanyards through ours, and I am wrapping them around the closet pole to hang it in there. It's not very pretty, but it does the job.

There are hooks on the back of the bathroom door. As well as on the wall between the bathroom and the bed area in the room. I know for sure they are there on the Magic & Wonder. And I'm sure I read here that they have them on the Dream & Fantasy. You can just make a loop (like on a FE) to hang the organizer from those.

Also, on the Fantasy (probably Dream too, can't remember if they're in the Wonder or the Magic) there are two "hooks" on the wall inside the WC side of the split bath. We hung a plastic hanger from one of the hooks and tide the shoe organizer to the coat hanger using zip ties - worked great for us

I was the one who posted about using the dowel rod. Here's a picture of it. Worked fine for me and the only thing touching the door was the ribbon and the back of the organizer.

Thanks for posting the photo as that was not exactly as I was envisioning. Thinking we'd still like to have on outside of bathroom door so its easy to drop things off when coming in door. Think this design will still work on outside of foot and ribbon over top won't damage door.

It is hard for me to find an inexpensive shoe organizer here, but for my last cruise I used collapsable boxes. They were actually very handy! At the end of my cruise I gave them to Guest services (I gave them my not too tacky pirate-y fish extender, too) They deserved it for coming up to weigh my luggage 3 times!

I found shoe organizers at the dollar store with 4 pockets. I bought two - one for the bathroom door and one for the hook inside the cabin. They came in nautical colors - red and navy with rope hangers. Dollar general I believe.
