9 Things You Don't Know About Your Cabin
Whether you've never been on a cruise ship or have been on 50, we bet there's something surprising you don't know about your cruise ship cabin.

Staterooms are a little more complicated than hotel rooms, and you can learn a few tricks of the trade to make them more user-friendly.

Most people stumble upon them over time through self-discovery or getting tips from fellow cruisers but today we thought we'd speed up the process for you and share the top tips with you.

Here are nine (sometimes unexpected) things that Cruise Critic & our Clean Cruising team have learned about cruise cabins after hundreds of sailings on ships of all types:

Tips on Cruise Cabins

1. It's magnetic. A cruise ship is really just a big, beautified floating piece of metal, and that includes your cabin. So even if the walls don't look or feel metallic, they are this means you can use magnets to help organize the abundance of papers the ship's crew will usually leave for you. For instance, have a cocktail invitation you don't want to lose? Use a magnet to stick it to the wall nearest the door so you can grab it on your way out.

Tips on Cruise Cabins

2. Humps and afts. Not all cabins or cabin balconies are created equal, and we're not just talking about category differences. Just because two cabins are in the same category doesn't mean they're identical. In fact, some of the most desirable cabins aren't in the highest categories.

They're the "special" standard balcony cabins that just happen to offer a little something extra, like the "hump" balcony, which is only found on ships that bulge out at the middle, therefore offering a larger balcony and interior space. Likewise, corner aft cabins, priced the same as regular aft cabins, often feature wraparound balconies.

Tips on Cruise Cabins

3.Few cruise ship bathrooms have ventilation fans, and it's not long before more than just the bathroom smells, well, funny. But a little forethought and a scented freshener hanging from your shower curtain can make all the difference. Whether you bring some aromatherapy oils or a hanging car freshener doesn't matter, they'll all do the trick. Just don't bring anything you need to light with a flame, such as a scented candle or incense.

Tips on Cruise Cabins

4. While it's always best to request the bed configuration you want before your cruise, just because you enter your cruise cabin to find two beds when you're traveling with your spouse, or one bed when you're traveling with a friend, doesn't mean you're in trouble. Beds on most ships can easily be pushed together or separated; just ask your cabin steward to do it while you're out of the cabin.
Tips on Cruise Cabins

5. Always take a "hanging shoe sorter", those plastic, pliable, clear-plastic roll-up shoe sorter that you can hang on the inside of the bathroom door and put all your small items in, such as razors, clothes pegs, power adapter, toothpaste/toothbrush, hair brush, comb, pills, deodorant, sun/insect screen etc. There's never enough counter or shelf space in the bathrooms.

Tips on Cruise Cabins

6. Look under the bed. On my first few cruises, I often found myself complaining that my dresses and skirts couldn't hang nicely in the closet because our big suitcase took up so much space. Then one day, on perhaps our third or fourth cruise, my husband looked under the bed and found lots of empty space there. We didn't have to shove all our bags into the closet. Also keep your suitcases open under the bed, effectively creating two drawers!

Tips on Cruise Cabins

7. Whoosh. Here's a science experiment to try on your next cruise (or not!). What happens when you open both your balcony and cabin doors at the same time? Ever seen the movie Twister? Okay, so a cow isn't going to come swirling into your cabin, but a wind tunnel will whip its way between the two doors, leaving a mess in its wake.

Tips on Cruise Cabins

8. Water, water everywhere. No need to lug a case of water with you when you go cruising. The tap water on cruise ships is completely safe and drinkable, having been through rigorous filtration and testing, all of which are overseen by U.S. and European heath agencies. While some cruisers claim that the tap water in restaurants and bars tastes different from what comes out of the cabin bathroom, it is all, in fact, the same water.

Tips on Cruise Cabins

9. Your luggage needs to be put outside your cabin door the night before you arrive at your final destination. Take a small cabin bag or day pack that you can also use on shore excursions for your nightwear and toiletries to avoid leaving the ship looking like a hipster in you pyjamas or dressing gown. Trust us this does happen!
