Cruise cabin door decorations are a fabulous way of identifying your cabin when you first board a cruise ship. Initially it can be daunting when faced with a multitude of doors all looking the same to find yours. In fact the corridors and the doors look the same too.
On our first Cruise holiday we got lost a couple of times identifying our cabin. In my review of Day 1 I mentioned that we had found a tip that helped us.
This tip is the simplest trick around. I packed a colourful postcard with blu tack and attached it to the front of our cabin door.
This was a simple, effective and easy way of creating cruise cabin door decorations – as we walked along the corridor we could locate our door easily. Yes, I know the doors have numbers but this bright card made it all so simple.
If you are part of a group, decorated doors can also make it easier to find other members of your party, even on different decks and in different types of cabins, without remembering multiple numbers. Even making identifying your cabin fun! You could create a group theme of Cruise cabin door decorations
For young cruisers or elderly passengers who may have more difficulty remembering cabin numbers, door decor can relieve stress and help everyone feel comfortable with finding their cabin on board the ship.
In the US decorations are used to make it easier to communicate with different family members or other passengers when you leave notes or messages for one another on a small whiteboard or notepad.
I foolishly failed to take a photo of my postcard in place to show you. But can show similar ones!
Hopefully no-one decides to play games and switch it to another door!
I mentioned EECC Travels – in the USA passengers make elaborate door signs. I do not think this is the norm on British Cruise lines, in fact ours was the only door with a decoration on, but we did hear passengers comment that it was a great idea.
Here is my Pinterest board showing examples I have found some elaborate and some simple. Items to use can even be purchased on Amazon and Etsy. Plus I’ve found a fabulous website, Zazzle, that sells customised door signs!
A word of caution though, if you wish to do this please check any rules and guidelines regarding what you can and cannot use with your Cruise line.
How about you do you have a hint or tip to find your cabin when on a cruise holiday? Let me know.
