A few years ago, we had KC Chiefs photo frame magnets with our nicknames in the middle. "princess catherine" or "King George".
They lasted about a full day, until the guys from Green Bay saw them.
You should consider taking replacements in case the originals get "lost".
We had generic "sea theme" magnets in January, and a couple of them walked off mid week. It really does make finding your cabin easier.

They are port holes with STEELERS In the middle. One of the guys going with us is a graphic artist and made them for us. I have puddy to hold them onto the doors.

I don't mean to be negative or anything but this whole thing sounds really silly to me. But whatever floats your boat or ship is my motto!!

I already have the yellow smiling sun to place on the suite door but found yesterday some awesome cling door decorations at the dollar store yesterday. They were parrots, palm trees, coconuts, hammock,drinks & a sign that said sailing out to the islands etc all on one flat sheet. It does sound funny but its fun!

We want to make the cruise as much fun as we can

If making posters for our doors or have shirts that all match will help us do that, then there are many people who will continue to do this.

I got this idea from these boards and I think it is such a great idea.

Plus, we are proud of where we live. Our door posters and shirts show that

Being silly is a good thing.
We have always put stuff on our doors.
Lots of people do and its kind of fun when
you are on your way to your room to see
all the things people put up.
Having a good time is what its all about.

You should try it Johnsmom you might get a kick out of it too..
But its okay if you dont.
To each their own..
Have a good cruise

Just got off the Fantasy on the 10th. We had 17 cabins in our group and all of the doors were decorated. A few people in our group made different items for the door decorations. One was our first names in each cabin printed out on construction paper and stuck to the doors with double sided tape, another was Mardi Gras colored streamers and my sister made different colored bows from ribbons that actually went around and tied in the inside of the cabin. There was a few names missing by the end of the cruise, but all the streamers and bows were still there by debarkation. No complaints about the tape on the doors, although it peeled off rather easy.

I just figured I would give this category a bump.

I always find it interesting to read how others are creative and decorate their cabin doors.

I have never decorated the OUTSIDE of our door, but did discover early on the fun of collecting refrigerator magnets from all the ports and decorating the inside of the door! They are inexpensive and once we get home we can enjoy them on the fridge at home until we swap them after the next cruise! The grandkids love rearranging the magnet collection on a regular basis! (We also use one of those little magnetic locker cups to keep our key cards and little things in). I am going to try and find some decorations for the outside for our next cruise- it does seem like a fun idea. The DollarTree is a good idea, especially if decorations have a way of wandering at times.

Keep the suggestions coming...
What would you decorate the balcony with?
Probably can't use a candle but maybe one of the battery
operated kind?
My first trip with a balcony in 12 days on the Glory. What other balcony things does one need?

It's fun to decorate the doors. We find so many cute things to put up. Will be doing it again in April 2010. Its my sons 40th birthday cruise. So we will definately fix up his door. We tried to put up flag banners on our balcony's but the winds are too much. and had trouble to hang it up. But we tried. Just wanted to spot our cabin from the docks looking up. Guess what. ? We did see which one was ours anyways. Happy cruising. Have fun always........

Guess this is just the "bad girl" jean in me - but that would make me want to go and rearrange people's deco's on their doors to confuse them!!!

Yeah - I know... I am not a youngin anymore... but it still ran across my mind. haha!
