Organize your Cruise Ship Cabin, Hotel Room and Home

Cruise Approved Power bar:  https://amzn.to/3wdhCym     Cruise Ships do NOT allow power strips with Surge Protectors, they will be confiscated.  Most cruise ships only have a couple of outlets per cabin.  I travel with 2 of these, one for bedside and the other for the bathroom.

Doorstop Alarm:  https://amzn.to/3UqzgZV     When traveling with kiddos either hotel rooms or cruising these are a must.  You always know where they are.  I use them when I travel solo.  Real piece of mind !

Wrinkle Release:  https://amzn.to/3pyHlxE  Cruise Ships do NOT allow Irons/steamers/kettles, they will be confiscated. If flying get 100ml or lower.  Not all cruise ships have self-service laundry or items to loan.

Over the door organizer:  https://amzn.to/3zN7nlm     this is what I use to super organize.  If you have a door that connects the cabin next door and they are NOT with you.  This also help to deaden the sounds.

Magnet hooks:  https://amzn.to/3QmBkQo     Cruise cabins are sometimes small and walls are mainly metal.  These will hold the weight of a backpack and more to help you organize.

Magnet clips:  https://amzn.to/3QJvJ6g00     Organize all that cruise paperwork on your metal cabin walls.

Poo-Pourri:  https://amzn.to/3CikdLq  Not much ventilation in ship cabins.  (make sure you get the 2oz size if you are flying - 100ml bottle limit)

Travel alarm clock:  https://amzn.to/3zYFMxG        Video Shows White but the product is black.  If you want to get up at a particular time, do not trust the wake up service on your cruise OK unless it is Disney and you really want to hear Mickey's voice on wakeup.

Night light (motion sensor):  https://amzn.to/3AxZL82     Cruise cabins are really dark at night.  If it's an interior cabin you can't see your hand in front of your face.  These give you light without waking others sharing your cabin.

Night Lights:  https://amzn.to/3QB5orl

Laundry hamper:  https://amzn.to/3c2A1aa and https://amzn.to/3K6rqQp     If you have one at home duh! I know you do.  Why would you not have one at sea or in your hotel.  This collapses in to nothing.

Travel hairdryer:  https://amzn.to/3QSxDSb

Travel fan:  https://amzn.to/3QVavmc     If you do not have a balcony cabin on the ship there is not much circulation.  This really helps!  I never travel without mine.

Luggage and Accessories that will make your travel so much more enjoyable!

Collapsible Cooler     https://amzn.to/3RUZQbQ      Great for cruising or a hotel room without a fridge.  Your cabin steward will be happy to keep this filled with ice for you.

Fanny Pack, Large Crossbody:  https://amzn.to/3AwBBuy     I wear a shirt or T over this to make it even safer.

Travel luggage scale:  https://amzn.to/3QX8Axy     A must if you don't want to pay that extra $50-$75 if your bag is over the limit.

Miscellaneous and Fun:

Cruise Rubber Duckies:  These are all yellow mini    https://amzn.to/3RuTYpE     and these are the 2+ inch normal size with some really cute assortments    https://amzn.to/3eoqICg  https://amzn.to/3f79RUQ  https://amzn.to/3BT50jd  Oh and if you like unicorns these are a must  https://amzn.to/3f7Ktyg   Cruisers often hide rubber duckies around the ship for a bit of fun.  The ducks usually have information cards or passports attached to them bearing the names of the people who hid them and where those passengers are from.  Your choice to keep or hide again.  Rules:  Only public spaces, No Shops, No Pools, No Hot Tubs.  You can also post a Photo on Facebook Page "Cruising Ducks" with you and your newly found Rubber Duckie to share the adventure.  I personally hide 100 yellow mini on every cruise I have taken since this trend started in 2018.  You should see the collection I have from what I have found.
