Does anyone know if you are allowed to hang Christmas lights on your outside balcony?

No you are not allowed to hang anything on your balcony,even towels and wet bathing suits.
Everybody does it anyway.
We never leave things on the balcony unless we are in the room and even then we peg them. Anything blown overboard could harm sea life and you can never predict when the wind is going to gust out at sea.
If you put things out there, the stateroom host will remove them and leave a note regarding the rules in your room. They are also concerned with how the ship's appearance on the outside.
No, DCL does not permit anything to be hung or left out on the verandahs.
The other problem is that they power wash the ships at certain times, usually while in port. Anything left out on a verandah may not withstand a wash.
No, "everyone" doesn't do it anyway.
OP - your question has been answered correctly, No.
Another concern is the potential fire hazard if someone throws a lit cigarette butt off the ship and it lands on someone's balcony. News link
Oh that makes it ok then. NOT
I can see the reasoning for lights, and things hanging... But I never saw that you weren't supposed to put anything... We kept our stroller out there when not in use, folded up, along the side wall.
According to DCL you are not supposed to leave anything outside on the balcony if you are not out there yourself, including strollers.
Who exactly were you planning on seeing the lights? The ship is out at sea during times when the lights would be on. Also, as everyone else as said, you can't (shouldn't) do it.
Very good point!
Good to know., thanks! Our room attendant never said anything, and we didn't know.
Thanks for the info and replies! I have seen it done in the past which why I asked. Doesn't mean I plan on doing it or disobeying ship's rules. I was just curious.
I would see them from inside the cabin. I read that I can bring battery operated lights, and I plan to hang them inside the porthole or on the veranda door, depending on which cabin we get.
Yeah I was going to plan to hang them in our porthole. They are battery operated. Since we can't hang them on our door as decoration, the porthole is the next best thing!
Are you allowed to use tape on the inside of the port holes, or would that peel off the paint? Wondering what would be safe to use. I'm assuming you can put tape on the glass, or would the stateroom host remove that?
Pretty sure you are not permitted to use tape or adhesive on the walls or frames. I know they prohibit using it on the doors.
